Maine/New Hampshire/Nova Scotia have the landscape
Pacific Northwest has the temperature

Alaska seems like a better comparison, atleast during summer. Alaska has many unforested mountain areas.
the only places I can think of for PNW are some Islands on the Pacific coast such as:

Tatoosh Island


Destruction Island


but your best bet would be Aleutian Islands in Alaska.

Unalaska Island


Adak Island

I was thinking more of the climate.

Though not the US, if you want a good piece of Scottish landscape and climate, along with some shared Scottish heritage without leaving the continent, you can't do any better than the Atlantic/Maritime provinces of Canada. Nova Scotia translates New Scotland in Latin. I took a recent trip to Newfoundland back in July, here's what the scenery is like on the eastern coast of the island outside St. John's.

Well to be fair, Alaska is the PNW on steroids!

Marginal lands can still be grazed. Summit of Snowden (highest mountain in Wales) has sheep grazing.

The Scottish landscape is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world to me! I think that there are some higher sections of the White Mountains in NH that are reminiscent.
