The Highlands

The Highlands really is the Scotland of your imagination. Think big skies, mind-blowing landscapes, superb food and hospitable people - and you've got the Scottish Highlands. There's a natural playground which begs to be explored, while the region's turbulent history has left behind some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the world.

A Highlands holiday will see you get lost - not literally - in the majestic mountains and mysterious lochs, pass through Britain's largest National Park, witness dolphins frolicking off the Moray Coast, marvel at the sensational seascape of the North Highlands, walk in the shadow of Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis, or explore the stunning islands and stretches of coastline.
