The Scottish Highlands tends to get busy through summer, particularly from July to August. While hotel prices tend to increase, the weather is at its warmest. What's more, hikers should prepare for the dreaded midges during this period. To avoid the crowds and still experience fine weather, consider May, June and September. Attractions remain open during these months with fun kayaking excursions and sailing expeditions. The low season falls between October and April. Provided you dress well, these colder months can be stunning in the Highlands. Rural attractions, however, are often closed, including seasonal restaurants. It also gets dark early with nippy weather and high chances of snow. In terms of special events, the Highland Games take place in September and can be great fun. The most famous Games event is the Braemar Gathering.
The Scottish Highlands are a treat for all sorts of traveller. Given the spellbinding landscapes and cosy country cottage options, it’s an immensely romantic place. Be sure to explore the spectacular coast for delightful seafood restaurants overlooking the water. As for groups, active holidaymakers will find much to do. You can kayak along lochs, hike up mountains or cycle through forests. You can even ski in the winter months. Families will find much to discover, too, from centuries-old castle attractions to engaging wildlife parks. The steam-powered Strathspey Railway, in particular, can be a real treat for little ones. Whether you’re looking to relax or challenge yourself with rigorous walks, you’ll find it in the Highlands.

International travellers have multiple points of entry into the Highlands. Major airports in Edinburgh and Glasgow are the most convenient, with the latter offering excellent access to the Highlands. While Scotland’s rail network is extensive through central regions, the Highlands only has limited coverage. As such, a car is by far the most advantageous way to travel. You can rent a vehicle in most major towns and airports. This will allow you to travel at your own pace and reach the most stunning rural regions. If you want to explore Scotland’s islands and coast, regular ferries connect with the Highlands.
