Las Highlands

Sí, nos damos cuenta de que es un cliché, pero las Highlands son realmente la Escocia que ves en tu imaginación. Es una increíble mezcla de cultura, historia, naturaleza y paisaje sin igual. Cielos amplios, vistas que te dejarán sin aliento, excelente gastronomía y gentes hospitalarias… realmente es imposible encontrar un sitio mejor para escapar de todo y relajarse. Impredecible. Indomable. Increíble. ¿Existe algo mejor?

Déjate encantar por el dramatismo de las Highlands…

Cuando viajes por esta hermosa tierra podrías perderte, figurativamente hablando, por sus majestuosas montañas y misteriosos lagos. Las vistas te dejarán sencillamente boquiabierto. Atraviesa el Parque Nacional más grande de toda Gran Bretaña, observa a los delfines que juguetean junto a la costa de Moray, maravíllate ante el espectacular paisaje costero del norte de las Highlands, camina a la sombra del pico más alto de Gran Bretaña, Ben Nevis, o explora las impresionantes islas y tramos de costa. Y si no has oido hablar del Lago Ness, el lago más famoso de Escocia… te espera una auténtica delicia.

Agárrate fuerte y respira hondo…

Las Highlands están deseando que las exploren, y el paisaje natural de la región es como un imán para los buscadores de riesgos. A nadie sorprende que se conozca a Fort William como la "capital de actividades al aire libre del Reino Unido". Sede de la Copa Mundial de Ciclismo de Montaña UCI, aquí podrás disfrutar de pistas de montañas de primera clase y en toda la región de las Highlands podrás escoger entre deportes como pesca, golf, kayak en mar, descenso de rápidos, barranquismo, escalada de Munros, deportes de nieve y mucho más. La elección es tuya.

Tocando el pasado

Un inquietante aire de misterio envuelve a las Highlands, y la turbulenta historia de la región ha dejado atrás algunos de los castillos más hermosos y románticos del mundo. Tanto el Castillo de Dunvegan en Skye como el Castillo de Brodie en Moray y el Castillo de Mey en el norte de las Highlands son de verdad tan magníficos como dice la gente. Pero no se trata tan solo de castillos, aunque son realmente increíbles. Obtén información en el centro de visitantes de Glencoe sobre la infame masacre, disfruta del monumento de Glenfinnan, tributo a la historia de los levantamientos jacobitas, o detente en el Archivo de las Highlands si deseas explorar sus raíces.

Viajar por las Highlands

Cómo  llegar

Puedes llegar y desplazarte fácilmente por las Highlands utilizando la extensa red de carreteras y transporte público. Puede parecer que la región es remota, pero esta hermosa parte de Escocia tiene fácil acceso y desde luego, el viaje vale la pena.

Cómo desplazarse

  • Tanto si vas conduciendo hasta Fort William y Lochaber, si caminas por el West Highland Way o si haces el recorrido en tren en el ferrocarril de las Highlands occidentales, podrás admirar algunas de las más hermosas vistas de Escocia.
  • Disfruta de trayectos ilimitados en torno a Moray Speyside durante un día con el bono Stagecoach Dayrider, o explora en coche la Ruta del Whisky de Malta siguiendo las inconfundibles señales marrones y blancas a lo largo de la ruta.
  • Cruza el puente de Skye hacia Kyleakin siguiendo la A87 en dirección a Broadford o súbete  al ferry CalMac, que está en servicio todo el año entre Mallaig y Armadale; las dos rutas son igualmente pintorescas.
  • Hay servicios regulares de autobús y ferrocarril a Inverness, Nairn y el lago Ness desde Edimburgo, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling y Perth, o puedes ir con una excursión organizada en autocar; organiza tu viaje con Traveline Scotland.
  • Si viajas a o desde Fort William, puedes incluso atreverte a hacer a pie parte del trayecto en el Great Glen Way.

  • Inverness da acceso a las Highlands septentrionales recibiendo vuelos regulares desde todo el Reino Unido, o es posible volar directamente al aeropuerto de Wick John O'Groats desde Edimburgo. Una vez que te encuentres en la región, explora el extremo norte de Escocia siguiendo una nueva ruta turísica, la North Coast 500, el equivalente escocés a la Route 66 americana.
