Why Scottish Highlands?

The Scottish Highlands are among Europe's most imposing landscapes. Visitors come expecting crags and lochs, windswept mountains and deep-rooted tradition; that's exactly what they get. Venturing north of Stirling and Dundee, the intrepid traveler won't find another city until Inverness, where the legendary Loch Ness meets the Moray Firth. From there, winding roads and unspoilt vistas carry you to John O'Groats and the steely North Sea.

Highlands holiday cottages come in all shapes and sizes. If you're hoping to get closer to nature, lochside log cabins are an excellent - and economical - option. Or how about a stone cottage near the foot the UK's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis? Unless you're staying in a larger town, self catering in the Scottish Highlands is often the best option - it's unusual to get room service on a mountainside! If you're planning to stay somewhere truly remote, be sure to arrange some basic supplies beforehand.

Weird and wonderful

Without a doubt, Scotland has the UK's strangest wildlife. So strange, in fact, that it has eluded would-be monster hunters for decades. If you want to catch a glimpse of Nessie, perhaps a cruise along the vast Loch Ness, plus a tour of the crumbled Urquhart Castle, will be the ideal day out.

In the Cairngorm mountains to the south, you can walk among Britain's only herd of reindeer. You'll need a good pair of hiking boots, but the opportunity to feed them by hand is as popular with adults as it is with younger visitors.

Into the wild

Those with the stomach for adventure might consider scaling all 1,200m of Ben Nevis to reach the highest point in the country, 1,346m above sea level. You can leave your ice axes at home in summer, but it is a tough hike. Set aside a whole day to do it and savour the view from the summit.

From the highest point to the most northerly: at John O'Groats you can look out to sea from the very tip of mainland Scotland. A few miles west in Gills Bay or Scrabster, you can hop on a boat to the Orkney islands, home to thriving communities of islanders and countless wild birds. There are only a few sailings a day, so plan thoroughly if you don't intend to stay.

Jacobite Lodge. Luxury Lodge with a hot tub and amazing views
Great place to stay

We were here as a family of ten and had a ball. Location is ideal for visiting Aviemore and Landmark centre in Carrbridge. The house itself was really cleaning and a good size, the amount of bathrooms was a bonus for so many people. Loads of room outside for the kids to play and hot tub was well used by all. We would definitely recommend for a break.see more

Aultbea Lodges - Lodge 2 - Pet Friendly
Perfect pet-friendly lodge

My husband and I along with our Labrador Archie had a brilliant 3 nights at Aultbea Lodges. The lodge was spotless and extremely well equipped. Our veranda had an amazing view of the sea yet the lodge was in a lovely secluded woodland setting overlooking Aultbea. The whole site of 10 lodges has been well thought out and designed so that each lodge has its own privacy and views. We will most certainly be back.see more

Holiday Chalet Rental
Loved it

We booked very last minute and wanted accommodation for only 2 nights. Very few properties allow only 2 nights so when this one came up it was ideal. The owner came back to us immediately and the whole booking process was smooth. Loved the caravan it was excellent. Clean tidy and had everything you needed. The weather on Saturday was excellent so we had a bbq and even managed to utilise the sun loungers. Thankssee more
