 There’s always something new to explore and discover in the Highlands, partly due to its sparse population. There are countless historical attractions such as the iconic castles Cawdor, Dunrobin and Eilean Donan. See where Viking war galleys once rampaged in the north while venturing across some of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. The Holiday Homes in the Scottish Highlands are perfect for those who love wildlife, adventure and the great outdoors.

There is no shortage of outdoor activities, with fishing, falconry, kayaking, rock climbing, quad biking and whale watching on the coast, all part of the Highland itinerary. In summer, visit a Highland Games to enjoy some of the traditional sports such as caber tossing. There are plenty of chances to relax in The Highlands too. The Highlands contain some of the most tranquil beaches on the coastline of Scotland. The Silver Sands of Morar near Lochaber contain a clutch of golden sandy beaches with deep turquoise waters and visually striking views of the Isle of Skye.
