Your Destination —
Stretching from the vast peat bogs in the north, a truly remote region that will take you back to centuries gone by, to the west coast’s isolated crofting villages, only reachable by boat; the Scottish highlands are a world away from modern, fast-paced life and extraordinarily peaceful.
Explore the stunning mountains of the region plummeting into the lochs below and the rolling glens as the sun sets in the distance. Hike deep into these remote landscapes and see if you can spot a wild deer. Visit one of the many whisky distilleries to learn how they make their fine brews and sample some of their best. Taste some of their own Scottish smoked salmon in a local smokery and try your hand at some fishing in their wild rivers. Listen to the bagpipes play in the local town and soak up the atmosphere of a country filled with spirit and an unforgotten, passionate history.
The city itself has a host of historic buildings, notably in the Old Town, as well as fascinating shops from the Victorian Market to the new award-winning Eastgate centre.
Take a stroll to Inverness Castle or St Andrew's Cathedral, set alongside the River Ness, one of Britain's most beautiful riverside settings. There is a circular walk from the castle along the river and through the Ness Islands and you can watch anglers trying to catch Atlantic salmon - or try it yourself with a daily ticket. There are forest walks and views of the Moray Firth from Craig Phadrig, the hill that towers over the city.
