    Where are the Scottish Highlands?

    The Highlands are located in an area N.W. of the Highland Boundary Fault which crosses Scotland from Dumbarton (near Glasgow) in the S.W. to Stonehaven (near Aberdeen) in the N.E. The area includes islands such as Skye, Orkneys  and Lewis.

    What are the Scottish Highlands?

    The enigmatic Highlands contain a variety of landscapes which provide the region with its unique personality. Nature (over millions of years) has provided the coastlines, hills and valleys as a canvas on which man has left its mark as manifested in enclosed fields, stone walls, forest plantations, roads, bridges, cottages, hydro-electric schemes, canals, castles, wind farms and much more.

    What can the visitor see and experience on a tour of the Scottish Highlands 

    An escorted or self-drive tour will afford the visitor with a unique and memorable experience. Top of most visitors list is Loch Ness with its elusive monster, a site best viewed from the historic Castle Urquhart. Alternatively, boat trips on the Loch are available. Aside from Loch Ness visitors can experience Highland Culture ( Highland Dancing, Ceilidhs and Highland Games), geology ( some of the rock formations date back 2,600 million years), battlefield sites ( e.g. Culloden near Inverness), castles, wildlife, scenery ( e.g. Glencoe), islands ( each with own personality), evidence of the infamous Highland Clearances, clan and personal family history, prehistory  ( stone circles), Highland Cows  (very photogenic!), whisky distilleries, salmon fishing and much more. In the west and islands the ancient Gaelic language is still spoken.

    What are the ‘must see’ sites in the Scottish Highlands and Islands?

    The most popular places to see include Inverness ( capital of the Highlands), Fort William and Ben Nevis, Glencoe ( rugged scenery and massacre site), Fort Augustus ( at southern tip of Loch Ness), Castle Urquhart ( Loch Ness), Isle of Skye, Glenfinnan ( Bonnie Prince Charlie connection and site for viewing the steam pulled Jacobite Express), Isle of Mull  and the religious island of Iona, the western islands of Lewis  and Harris and the wild and remote Sutherland in the north.
