This is a historic county of northern Scotland. It is Scotland’s largest historic county and includes a section of the central Highlands, Glen Mor, and a portion of the Highlands to the north.

The area is very sparsely populated with lots of driving spectacular views and exploration. The roads seem to wind endlessly into the mist that descends like an impenetrable shield from the towering peaks above, If you have ever had the opportunity to escape to Scotland to follow in William Wallace’s footsteps, or even Harry Potter’s, then hopefully you have had the chance to drive and explore the many back and country roads weaving and twisting through its remote glens and hills.

The Scottish Highlands look great from the road, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a "must see" destination for all visitors, with literally thousands of pathways, cycling routes, walking, rambling, hillwalking (Munros and Corbetts) low level walks, mountain biking, pony trekking, golf, fishing, bird and wildlife watching.

The most expensive time to travel this region is Easter, June July and August, there are rest areas and pullover bays everywhere so that you can take it slow which are highly recommend, mobile and Wi-Fi are sketchy, so don't rely on them always carry a relevant paper map the locals know the roads, especially the single lane roads, so they drive fast and confidently, and will expect you to pull into the passing places as they approach or pull over and let them pass if they are behind you, only drive the more challenging routes if you are a confident driver, many guide books warn drivers not to attempt it if you are a nervous driver or a beginner, pay attention to that warning! If you are a nervous driver these roads are not for you.

  • Fuel is readily available and open, but be on the safe side and don't let the fuel level go too low.

The Scottish Highlands are world renowned for being home to some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery, from the peaks of the Scottish Highlands and isolated unspoilt beaches, boat trips to watch dolphins frolicking off the Moray Coast, marvel at the sensational seascape of the North Highlands, Culloden, Dunnet Head and north coast beaches, west coast views, castles (May and Dunrobin) castle ruins (Ardvreck) and Caledonian Canal locks, walk in the shadow of Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis, or explore the stunning islands and stretches of coastline, explore the region's turbulent and bloody history, visit some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the world, take one of the greatest railway journey in the world, a 84 mile round trip, starting near the highest mountain in Britain, this is the most westerly mainland railway station, passing close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis! and beyond Glenfinnan are the beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar and Mallaig.

Continuing onwards North of the highlands you will find harbours and making their living on a mix of fishing and tourism, inland is the isolated flat peat bog and moorland of the Flow Country, one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe.

While the population of the Flow Country is sparse, it is a popular home for numerous rare plants, insects and birds.

Scotland’s stunning landscapes are more than just scenery, the local butchers and fishmongers, as well as farm shops, have the coast and countryside where high quality produce is reared, gathered and grown, world-renowned seafood such as wild trout, salmon, oysters and langoustines and hand-dived scallops, Aberdeen Angus beef, Ayrshire potatoes and the soft fruits of Fife.
