Holiday in Highland

In terms of nature, there is no better place than the Cairngorms National Park. Voted the best national park in the United Kingdom, it has too many activities available to mention. Wildlife and plant life are in abundance in the area and nature lovers can have fun exploring the area to see what they can find. Cairn Gorm Mountain is also found here and offers thrill seekers great options. From hiking up the mountain to taking the funicular railway, there are various ways to reach the summit. Travel up the mountain and discover lots of snow sporting adventures, including skiing, snowboarding and more. The Lochaber area of the Highlands is also home to the highest mountain in the United Kingdom, Ben Nevis. Experienced climbers are able to reach the summit, where the panoramic views of Scotland are unbeatable. 

For those wanting to stay closer to ground level, there are still many options in the Highland area. Escape to the area of Loch Ness for beautiful coastal regions, dark forests and hills covered in heather and local plant life. You can also learn about the legend of the Loch Ness monster, as well as trying to discover him in the mysterious loch! There are opportunities in the area for walkers, cyclists and horse riders with trails that cover the length of the loch. You can stop off at many tourist hotspots along the way, including the Fall of Foyers. This magnificent waterfall feeds into Loch Ness and is a stunning piece of natural beauty. 

The Highland area has many isles, with the stand-out island being the Isle of Skye. Voted one of the top four islands in the world, its views are unmissable. The island has many bays and white coasts which are perfect for a serene, tranquil day out. Skye is also home to lots of Scottish history and heritage. From stories that the Castle Moil was home to a Norwegian princess, to dinosaur footprints in the rocks of Staffin Bay and inland stone circles, Skye is an alluring place. Gaelic culture is also of high importance on the island and true Scottish traditions can be seen everywhere. As well as this, ask the locals about the myths of mermaids, selkies and other Gaelic legends of the island for great stories of Scottish heroes and their adventures. 

The Highland area is large and boasts of many must-see places to visit. From the towering mountains to the serene lochs and magical islands, the Highland holds unimaginable delights for visitors.
