Scotland has been named one of the top countries in the world to visit in 2014 by travel guide Lonely Planet and The Highlands are some of Scotland's wildest and most beautiful parts, offering spectacular scenery, with wide open skies, rugged mountains and deep lakes.
Wildlife is abundant and The Highlands are home to many amazing animals, birds and plants, including some of Britain's rarest; Scottish crossbill, redstart and tree pipit use the woods while red deer, golden eagles and peregrines range the hills here. Conservation by agencies such as Scottish Natural Heritage and the RSPB has ensured that visitors are able to appreciate the wonder of these animals and birds in their natural habitat.
The area has an extensive and fascinating history of clans, ancient battles and distinct traditions. Visitors travel from all over to sample the delights of the whisky distilleries, indulge in some ceilidh dancing, hear the bagpipes, taste some of the more unusual cuisine (anyone for haggis or cullenskink?) and view some of the famous castles and battlefields.
Lonely Planet 2014 suggests that visitors "take the high road to...Loch Ness...and fall in love with the landscape that inspired poet Robert Burns" and you can see why. It truly is a magical place.
The Highland Club sits on the edge of the charming village of Fort Augustus, right on the very southern tip of Loch Ness, allowing visitors the advantage of being able to explore both sides of this enormous lake with ease.....and there are many ways to do this: the South Loch Ness Trail runs 28 miles along the length of Loch Ness; ideal for walking or hire a bike from The Highland Club (for a small charge). If you prefer your views from the water you can jump on one of the numerous boats offering sight seeing trips or hire a private luxury cruiser or sailing yacht. Horse riding is another great way to explore.
The area offers fantastic opportunity for activities: Nessie spotting, shooting, stalking, fishing, falconry, golf, white water rafting, bungee jumping, archery....the list is endless.
If you prefer something more cultural try visiting a local whisky distillery, ceilidh dancing, one of the many castles such as Urquhart Castle, Cawdor Castle or Eilian Donan or one of the famous battlefields, such as Culloden.
