There is an enormous amount to do in the Highands - in fact you’d be hard pressed to fit it all in. In terms of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, there’s nowhere better. The setting is spectacular, and it’s an area that was made for exploring, whether on foot, or by bike or on the back of a pony. It's heaven for those craving adrenalin-fuelled pursuits like mountaineering, gorge walking or white water rafting. And if you’re after something gentler, try a round of golf on one of the award-winning courses, settle into an afternoon of fishing or watch other people get competitive at the world-famous Highland Games.

There are certain things you simply 'must see' when visiting the Scottish Highlands, and Loch Ness is one of them. Likewise the natural beauty of Aviemore, Glencoe and the Cairngorms National Park is unmissable, or you could spend your days sampling local whisky, marvelling at the splendour of Eilean Donan Castle and experiencing the Jacobite steam train between Fort William and Mallaig. Whether you're scaling Ben Nevis or discovering the coastline and islands, this is the kind of landscape you will never forget.
