Title says it all.

This is probably a phenomenally stupid question, but truth be told I've never been able to visualize High Rock the way I can the other territories, even those without games devoted to them. (For instance, Valenwood is a vast jungle, while Hammerfell is like the Sahara.)

The vibe I always seem to get is that High Rock is the closest that TES ever gets to traditional medieval-style fantasy, which means it's got villages, castles, temperate land and rolling hills. However, is this really the way it is?

You're somewhat right, I've played Daggerfall (It takes place in High Rock and Hammerfell) and I would think with the 2014 graphics it would look like the far west side of Skyrim.
And from the ShoddyCast, yes rolling hills

High Rock is a province in the northwest section of Tamriel. The coastal region is temperate and covered in loose forests; inland, it becomes more rocky and mountainous.

I think Alien's got the geography of High Rock covered pretty well and the architecture is like you said in the first post very classic medieval-style.

Also.

For fortune and glory ;)

It has all from moors to plain fields to rocky Mountains. It really depends, while the villages is not as impressing, only a Collection of Wood-houses their cities is really grand and impressive. Beautiful aswell. The Bretons are rather skilled at building and some of their cities such as Daggerfall and Wayrest may be in the top 10-5 list of the greatest cities in Tamriel. Daggerfall had 100,000 in the third era for example...
