The Highlands of Scotland epitomises all that magnificent wild and natural Britain has to offer. It's the place to head for if you want to immerse yourself in wonderfully contrasting and every changing landscapes and tranquil locations devoid of mass tourism.

This region extends coast to coast taking in dramatic mountains, majestic lochs, heather clad moors and picturesque glens; quiet and unspoilt, nature as it was intended. It's the perfect location for relaxing breaks, activity holidays, family holidays and romantic get-aways.

Full of historic interest at every turn, with ancient monuments and castles that tell the tale of the Highland clans, and there are plenty of great day outs, places of interest and activities to keep visitors fully occupied in this most beautiful part of the British Isles.

The Highlands region consists of distinctive sub-regions each with their own characteristics and unique charms, extending from Fort William and Lochaber in the south to the Northern Highlands.

Fort William is considered by many as the 'outdoor capital' of Scotland, this bustling town situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe has lots of places to eat and drink, interesting shops and is a great base for a wide selection of outdoor activities. The town is handy for trips into the dramatic and brooding Glen Coe and is the 'road to the Isles' which takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The town is also right next to the world famous Ben Nevis (and its glen), Scotland's highest mountain.

To the north is the iconic Loch Ness, some 23 miles long and 700 feet deep; in fact deep enough for a monster. Take a cruise to visit Urquhart Castle a once famous Great Glen fortress; there's a visitor centre both here and on shore at Drumnadrochit.

'The city of the Highlands' Inverness is today a modern thriving city on the banks of the River Ness. It has a rich historical and cultural history with plenty of attractions including a great castle. Close by is Fort George a well preserved 18th century fortification built in the terrible aftermath of the Battle of Culloden, facing out over the Moray Firth.

To the east are the Black Isle and the Moray Firth, dotted with traditional fishing villages, hidden bays and golden sandy beaches. It's a renowned dolphin watching area where you can see them quite close up from the shore if you're lucky.

Further north still is the awe inspiring Northern Highlands, with plenty of castles and ancient monuments, massive lochs, atmospheric mountains and glens and magnificent coastlines that stretch for miles. This is a sparsely populated region where you can really get away from everyday life and connect with nature.

If you're ready to begin your adventure take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in the Highlands today.

" In a land steeped in legends of the Bonnie Prince – close to Moidart’s sandy shores..."

Where a tree-lined glen opens out onto Loch Moidart and in countryside steeped with tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie, these fine properties stand upon the Kinlochmoidart Estate, within half a mile of the coast and 4 miles from the beach at Glenuig. The Scottish Baronial mansion of Kinlochmoidart House, occupies a marvellous position amidst some of Scotland’s most magnificent West Country scenery. It has been sensitively formed into three residences; two are careful conversions of an extensive service wing, while the main house (part of which is still the owners’ home) is a substantial property laid out over three floors and forming the middle portion of the building. The remaining three properties presented here are separately set in secluded locations within the vast grounds, comprising extensive shared gardens and the surrounding 2,000 acre estate grounds, which grant opportunities for excellent hill walking and fine varied fishing (fly fishing is available by arrangement). Very comfortably furnished, cosily heated and well-equipped throughout, each provides the perfect holiday retreat from which to enjoy an abundance of interests and scenic splendour with which this area is blessed at all times of the year.
Designed by William Leiper in 1884, Kinlochmoidart House is one of the finest examples of his work. It features a superb Art Movement interior – tilings, wallpapers, paint work, panelling and many other intricate architectural features have been painstakingly restored and represented, under strict architectural guidance, to return it to its former splendour. It occupies the site of a house which was once the resting place of Prince Charles Edward Stuart during the 1745 Jacobite Revolution – a connection commemorated in a nearby meadow, where seven beech trees symbolise the Seven Men of Moidart, the sum total of the army which he brought from France.
Just a short walk away from the house lies Loch Moidart, where vast expanses of sand are thrown up by the sea at low tide. At the seaward end of this beautiful inlet, sit the ancient ruins of 14th-century clan castle of Tioram (once the stronghold of the Lord of the Isles), providing a focal point for gloriously scenic views. Between nearby Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, a trail leads through the Ariundle Oakwoods Nature Reserve – a haven for wildlife – whilst southwards, the coast is punctuated by bays of white sand excellent for fishing and shell-collecting, or admiring the views over hill, loch and sea from horse back. Fort William, gateway to Ben Nevis, is a scenic drive away, and the Western Isles, Skye and Ardnamurchan are all accessible. Sailing at Acharade, 6 miles. Golf 30 minutes’ drive. Inn at Glenuig, 4 miles. Shops 7 miles.

With spacious accommodation over three floors, this substantial property forms a self-contained wing of this Baronial mansion (middle portion of the house). Entrance via steps to main door, leading via the main staircase to the first, second and third floors. First floor: Spacious and elegant drawing room with open fire, friezed ceiling and rugs on wooden floor. Spacious dining room with open fire in coombed fireplace, long picture windows and rugs on wooden floor. Large, well-equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen with two electric cookers. Utility. Billiard room with full-size table. Second floor: Four double bedrooms, each with 5ft bed, one with wash basin and one with splendid Victorian panelled bath. Twin bedroom. Single bedroom.

Conival Ref: UPS

With one of the best locations in the area, this spacious and modern property commands stunning panoramic sea and island views and is ideal for a large group or for semi-independent use by two families holidaying together. It has a very well equipped kitchen and large extremely comfortable living room with the gaze-compelling sea always in sight. Large sliding glass doors open out to a natural stone-clad patio area. It further enjoys a first floor sitting room and kitchen, also with large glass doors opening onto a balcony, again with the sea view, and boasts a garden which leads to heather-clad moorland and the coast beyond (200 yards). Just 3 miles from Achiltibuie, it lies on the Coigach Peninsula, with excellent walking around coastal paths or to the huge Ben More Coigach – nearly 2500ft and dominating the skyline. As the main settlement on the peninsula, Achiltibuie began as a crofting village, but now attracts a good number of holidaymakers who come for the excellent trout and salmon fishing or to eat at the Summer Isles Hotel or at the Am Fuaran Bar. Also of gastronomic interest is the Achiltibuie Smokehouse a few miles from the hotel, where traditional methods of smoking food can be seen and where the meat, fish and game can be bought afterwards. Founded at the height of the herring boom at the end of the 18th century, the popular holiday centre of Ullapool is 25 miles distant, jutting out into Loch Broom, the longest sea loch in the north-west Highlands. Several hiking trails begin at Conival, catering for all abilities - from shore side walks to strenuous ascents; whilst mountain biking and climbing are also enjoyed. To the north the hills round Lochinver are worth the effort, as is the geological centre at Knockan Crag and incredible limestone caves at Elphin which have recently yielded a bear skeleton. Trips to the Summer Isles – a cluster of uninhabited islets offshore – can be taken from Ullapool and from Achiltibuie pier at Bardentarbet to view the dolphins and porpoises. Trout, salmon and deep-sea fishing is available just 3 miles from the property, with sandy beaches ½ mile and 6 miles. Coastal fishing is good close to Conival or at the pier at Badentarbet which yielded the British record rod caught skate. Shop 3 miles.
