Highlands

UK travel information

The Highlands of Scotland have some of the best scenery in Europe with the mountains of the Cairngorms, stunning lochs and highland towns. Visit Inverness with its Museum and Art Gallery of Highland culture. For tartans go to James Pringle Weavers for the best products around.

At Balnain House there is an excellent display of Highland music and musical instruments. Why not take a cruise along the Caledonian Canal and on to Loch Ness, home of the legendary Loch Ness Monster. Nessie has attracted many visitors over the years hopeful of a glimpse of this legend. On the shore Urquhart Castle is a beautiful sight against the backdrop of the loch.

Cawdor Castle is the famous home of Macbeth and the scene of the murder of King Duncan. At Culloden the scene of the famous battle where Bonnie Prince Charlie’s leadership fell is a dramatic moorland area.

At Elgin the cathedral dominates the city and the Moray Motor Museum is very interesting. Some of the best highland walking is in the mountains with Be Nevis the highest peak and a challenging climb.

Drive the Road to the Isles from Fort William to Mallaig and onwards to the Isle of Skye through breathtaking scenes past Loch Eil and onward past Ardnish. One of the longest freshwater lakes, Loch Awe is in the South Western Highlands and set with Kilchurn Castle as a backdrop. Inverary Castle is one of the most stunning in this area.

Look out for displays of Highland dancing, games and the famous Highland Cattle on the moorland areas.
