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.
  • El ciclismo campo a través o en carretera es una forma estupenda de desplazarse por el Parque Nacional de los Cairngorms. La ruta 7 de la  Red Nacional de Ciclismo y partes de las rutas de Deeside Way, Speyside Way y Dava Way son buenas para el ciclismo.
  • 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.
