Hidden Highlands

It may be one of the most recognisable corners of Scotland, but there is still a lot you don’t know about the Highlands.

Witness the stark beauty of the region, with jagged cliffs, towering Munros and faraway castles framing the landscape. Explore the hidden history of Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, near Wick, or scale the summit of Stac Pollaidh, near Ullapool.

Go off the beaten track. Perhaps you’ll find that a mountain biking adventure is on the cards at the Abriachan Forest? Or, see what you can discover in the wildest corners of the Cairngorms National Park.

Feel the breeze as you explore some of the area’s most impressive yet undiscovered coastlines, from the pristine sands of Sanna Bay to the north westerly shores of Assynt.

Eat or drink something truly delicious –the region is famous for its produce, with restaurants cooking up freshly-caught seafood, homemade treats and quality meat. Try a dish at the Ghille Brighde Restaurant on the shores of Loch Torridon, and follow it up with a tasty dram of Speyside single malt.

For new experiences and unexpected discoveries, head for the Highlands!
