Find cottages in HighlandsVisit Highlands

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.
