Insofar as I know, Highlanders are people who live in the highlands of Scotland.

I know that in Peru we call people from the coast "Costeņo" and people from the mountains "Serrano" but I īve never heard that in English.  When I refer to things from the Andes, I ask my students to use the term "Andean".  Otherwise, you just have to use people from the desert, people from the coast, people from the highlands, etc. as far as I know.
I agree with Lynn about the term "Highlander".

Yes, I īve only heard "highlanders" used for people from the highlands of Scotland. In the US, we sometimes say "hill people", but not often.
