Visit The Highlands


Home to the Loch Ness and Ben Nevis, the Scottish Highlands has some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK.  From majestic snow-capped mountains to enchanting lochs, a visit to the Highlands is unforgettable.

Discover the great outdoors with a trip to Cairngorms National Park, Britain’s largest national park. The Park contains a unique range of landscapes, wildlife and habitats.  It is also home to five of Scotland’s six highest mountains, making it a great place to go hiking and mountain climbing. The forests of the Cairngorms contain parts of the original Caledonian pine forest and includes a rare kind of pinewood found only in Scotland and Norway. Full of wildlife and natural habitats, the National Park is truly an amazing place to explore.

Explore the history of the Isles with a trip to Armadale Castle, gardens and museum which sits at the heart of 20,000 acres of land. The area is home to diverse wildlife, farmland and ancient woodland.

No trip to the Highlands is complete without visiting the Loch Ness. Situated close to Inverness, this enchanting loch is shrouded in mystery, with tales of the Loch Ness Monster supposedly living deep beneath the water. The Loch has been widely recognised around the world since the first photograph emerged in 1933 of a large monster living in the dark expanses of the Loch Ness. Whilst the area is famous for the Loch Ness Monster, it is also one of the most stunning areas in the Scottish Isles.  There are a number of walking trails, boat tours and cycle routes in the area.
