Join us on a holiday to the Scottish Highlands

There is something for everyone in this picturesque, unspoilt corner of Scotland: scenic walking trails, farm-to-table dining, and opportunities to spot local wildlife.

If you are looking for other-worldly beauty that is just a step away from home, an escorted tour to the Scottish Highlands is a must. Characterised by craggy peaks, freshwater lochs, and endless miles of greenery, the highlands are the very picture of a quintessential Scotland holiday. These rugged landscapes can be explored in many ways, depending on your travel style. You might like to indulge in a nostalgic rail journey on the steam-hauled Strathspey Railway, cruise the Moray Firth in search of dolphins, or road trip the famed Glen Etive scenic route.

The Scottish Highlands have become world-famous over the past century for the Loch Ness monster, for featuring throughout the Harry Potter film franchise, and for a certain sheep-based delicacy - but its allure goes right back. Millions of years back. Ancient rocks from the first geological period of the Paleozoic Era gradually elevated to form a dramatic mountain range, which is now the Scottish Highlands we see today, on hikes, on road trips, on postcards, and in film.

The highland region stretches from Fort William in the west to John O' Groats in the north. We might have the impressive Mount Snowdon in Wales and the towering Scafell Pike in England, but the highest peaks in all the British Isles lie in the Scottish Highlands. You can’t miss Ben Nevis, at 1,344 metres high, but the slightly smaller peaks of Carn Eige and Sgurr Alasdair are also worth the visit.

Book an escorted Scottish Highland tour - or even a solo venture - and experience the best of this untamed region. Sample traditional Scotch on a whisky trail, visit medieval castles (still in pristine condition) and be serenaded by a local bagpipe player. You don’t need to go far from home to get a slice of wilderness, vastness, and ancient tribal culture - Scotland is the way to go.
