Sí, nos damos cuenta de que es un cliché, pero las Highlands son realmente la Escocia que ve en su imaginación. Es una increíble mezcla de cultura, historia, naturaleza y paisaje sin igual. Cielos amplios, vistas que le 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?

Déjese encantar por el dramatismo de las Highlands…

Cuando viaje por esta hermosa tierra podría perderse, figurativamente hablando, por sus majestuosas montañas y misteriosos lagos. Las vistas le dejarán sencillamente boquiabierto. Atraviese el Parque Nacional más grande de toda Gran Bretaña, observe a los delfines que juguetean junto a la costa de Moray, maravíllese ante el espectacular paisaje costero del norte de las Highlands, camine a la sombra del pico más alto de Gran Bretaña, Ben Nevis, o explore las impresionantes islas y tramos de costa. Y si no ha oido hablar del lago Ness, el lago más famoso de Escocia… le espera una auténtica delicia.

Agárrese fuerte y respire 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 podrá disfrutar de pistas de montañas de primera clase y en toda la región de las Highlands podrá 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 suya.

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. Obtenga información en el centro de visitantes de Glencoe sobre la infame masacre, vea el monumento de Glenfinnan, tributo a la historia de los levantamientos jacobitas, o deténgase en el Archivo de las Highlands si desea explorar sus raíces.

Viajar por las Highlands

Cómo  llegar

Puede llegar y desplazarse 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 va conduciendo hasta Fort William y Lochaber, si camina por el West Highland Way o si hace el recorrido en tren en el ferrocarril de las Highlands occidentales, podrá admirar algunas de las más hermosas vistas que le ofrece Escocia.
  • Disfrute de trayectos ilimitados en torno a Moray Speyside durante un día con el bono Stagecoach Dayrider, o explore en coche la Ruta del Whisky de Malta siguiendo las inconfundibles señales marrones y blancas a lo largo de la ruta.
  • Cruce el puente de Skye hacia Kyleakin siguiendo la A87 en dirección a Broadford o súbase  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 puede ir con una excursión organizada en autocar;  organice su viaje con Traveline Scotland.
  • Si viaja a o desde Fort William, puede incluso atreverse 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 las 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 se encuentre en la región, explore el extremo norte de Escocia siguiendo una nueva ruta turísica, la North Coast 500, el equivalente escocés a la Route 66 americana.
  • Puede viajar entre Tongue, Talmine y Lairg utilizando el Postbus, un minibús que puede llevar hasta cuatro pasajeros de pago a la vez que reparte el correo.
