You can get lost – not literally – in the majestic mountains and mysterious lochs as you journey through this beautiful land. The views are simply jaw-dropping. 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. And if you haven’t heard of Loch Ness, Scotland’s most famous loch… oh boy, you’re in for a treat!



The Highlands’ natural playground begs to be explored, and the region is a magnet for adrenaline-seekers. It’s no wonder – Fort William has been dubbed the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’! Host of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, here you can enjoy world-class mountains or pick from sports across the Highlands such as fishing, golfing, sea kayaking, white-water rafting, gorge walking, Munro bagging, snow sports and much more – the choice is yours.



There’s a haunting air of mystery that cloaks the Highlands, and the region’s turbulent history has left behind some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the world. From Dunvegan Castle on Skye and Brodie Castle in Moray, to the Castle of Mey in the North Highlands – they really are as magnificent as people say! But it’s not only about the castles, although they are pretty amazing. Learn about the infamous massacre at the Glencoe Visitor Centre, see Glenfinnan Monument; a tribute to the history of the Jacobite uprisings, or stop at the Highland Archive Centre to research your roots.
