The Scottish Highlands
Undoubtedly though, the main draw though is the magical Scottish Highlands, voted one of National Geographic’s ‘Best of the World’ destinations for 2023.
A realm of majestic lochs, ancient rivers, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls and dramatic valleys, the Scottish Highlands never fail to impress. Keep eyes peeled for red squirrels, the elusive Scottish wildcat and the iconic Highland cow.
