Holidays in the Highlands countryside

Stretching from just north of Pitlochry, through the Grampians and Cairngorms, Strathspey, Ross and Sutherland right up to Caithness at Scotland’s northern tip, it is a vast area, which is as scenically varied as it is breath taking.

There is something for everyone here - climbing, skiing and sailing in the Cairngorms, mountain biking, hill walking, a huge array of wildlife (on land, sea and air), lovely beaches, picturesque villages along the Moray coast, castles and stately homes, the list is endless. No wonder it is one of Scotland’s favourite holiday destinations.

Aberdeenshire & Morayshire

Aberdeenshire & Morayshire

This area stretches north and west from the ‘granite city’ of Aberdeen, up along the north sea coast, with its long stretches of sandy beach, to Fraserburgh, or ‘The Broch’.

Cairngorms & Strathspey

Cairngorms & Strathspey

Aviemore, a small town in a lovely setting beneath the Cairngorm itself, developed from a winter ski resort it now has attractions galore to tempt the year round visitor.

Inverness & Loch Ness

Inverness & Loch Ness

The ‘capital of the Highlands’ Inverness is a vibrant city offering every conceivable facility. South of it lies Loch Ness, the famous home of the fabled, if somewhat elusive, Loch Ness Monster.

Orkney

Orkney

Orkney is a gem and this wonderful group of islands offers far, far more than can be fitted into a single holiday including wonderful beaches and rocky cliffs.

Ross & Cromarty

Ross & Cromarty

Ross and Cromarty stretches from the Black Isle to Skye. On its south coast, Rosemarkie and Fortrose are pretty villages beside the dolphin-watching site Chanonry Point.

Sutherland & Caithness

Sutherland & Caithness

Sutherland and Caithness are the northernmost counties of Scotland. In Caithness, the countryside consists of farmland, while Sutherland offers dramatic scenery.

The East

The east Highlands covers the area north of Inverness to John O' Groats at the north-east tip of mainland Scotland westwards to Loch Eriboll on the northern coast.

There are some gems worth visiting including the Black Isle, the fine golf links which line the coast up to Golspie, the spa town of Strathpeffer, the fishing villages and the sandy beaches and rugged coastline of the north coast. The many rivers, lochs and moors in the north are popular for fishing and shooting.

Near Fort William

    The West

    The west Highlands covers the area from Fort William on the west coast to Durness on the north coast. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland - characterised by magnificent mountains leading steeply down to long narrow sea lochs and wide sandy bays and beaches, with stunning views towards Skye and the Small Isles in the south and the Outer Hebrides in the north.

    It is a haven for climbers, walkers and cyclists but, for the less energetic, there are some historical attractions and fantastic scenery to enjoy.
