Discover

The Highlands

Picture the Highlands of Scotland and then picture more. On breaks to the Scottish Highlands there are more mountains, more sky, more coastline and more lochs than you ever imagined. This huge and remote expanse is a hiker’s paradise with an endless array of trails to explore from the wild shores of the Moray Coast, through the granite slopes of Cairngorms National Park, over Britain’s highest peak – Ben Nevis – and past medieval castles. After a day of discovery settle down to a hearty meal in one of the region’s friendly hotels or inns and sample some of the local Highland Scotch. Breaks to the Scottish Highlands will leave you exhilarated, happily exhausted and eager to come back for more.
