For getting away from it all and being with nature, the Scottish Highlands is one of the best places to go. Camp out and sleep under the stars, or find a remote holiday cottage to rent, and you will truly be able to make the most from rural Scotland.
You won’t need to pack much, just some good footwear for walking as well as waterproofs and walking maps from https://www.themapshop.co.uk/Explorer_Walking_Maps.htm to ensure that you don’t get lost!
You will be spoilt for choice for stunning and scenic places to visit in the Scottish Highlands, but here are some of the best laces where you can really enjoy all the beauty that nature has to offer…
Muckle Flugga – One of the Shetland Islands, Muckle Flugga is small, but beautiful – see the seabirds such as Gannets and Skuas on the cliffs, and head up to the lighthouse to take in some truly spectacular views.
Loch Ness – Famous for the monster supposedly lurking beneath the loch, for walkers and camper’s loch Ness is a real treat. Take in the views over the loch, and visit the medieval Urquhart Castle, stood proudly overlooking the loch.
Beinn a’Chrulaiste – This imposing mountain near Fort William is said to be the best view in all of Scotland by many people. Make sure you have your climbing shoes as it is steep, but the reward is a view that will stay with you for life – looking across to Glen Coe.
