Map of The Scottish Highlands
Cities, Towns, and Lochs of the Highlands

Considered by most to be the capital of the Highlands. It is a small but thriving city. Despite the large reliance on tourism, the city is able to retain its market town feel, dating to its early development with a wealth of historic buildings in and around the city`s Old Town.

The nearest tourist resort to the Cairngorm Mountains offering accessibility to some of the most beautiful scenery in the Highlands, known for its skiing in winter and hiking in summer.

The ancient capital of Scotland, Dunfermline is a town with a rich historic and cultural heritage, having much to offer to its visitors. The town is intersected from north to south by the picturesque Pittencrieff Park.

Fort William, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, is a bustling town, thriving on the summer tourist trade and filled with shops, hotels, and cafes. It`s a good base for exploring Ben Nevis, Scotland`s highest mountain, and also, for a day trip to Glencoe, Scotland`s most famous and most scenic Highland glen.

One of Scotland’s largest and most famous lochs, known around the world thanks to its elusive monster Nessie. Just a short distance from Inverness, this impressive stretch of water is 23 miles long and over 700 ft at its deepest, making it Scotland’s largest loch in terms of volume.

Founded in 1788, on the lovely shores of the salt lake Loch Broom, Ullapool is a picturesque port and an excellent centre for a Scottish holiday.
Highlights of Scotland
The Lothians
The Lothians, home to Scotland`s capital city, Edinburgh, is a remarkable region. From historic properties to striking architecture, stunning scenery, fascinating wildlife, fine food, and other fun activities, Edinburgh never lacks excitement! Outside Edinburgh, experience sweeping landscapes of ancient battlefields, country houses, and castles.
Central Scotland
Central Scotland covers the dramatic regions of Stirling and the Trossachs, Perthshire, and Fife. The mainland strip showcases the country's splendor. Central Scotland is replete with steely blue lochs reflecting soaring, fortress-like craggy peaks, and ancient woodlands, serving as the backdrop to some of the most important events in Scottish history.
The Scottish Isles
There are over 900 islands in Scotland, and 89 of those islands are populated. The islands include the Hebrides in the west, the islands in the Firth of Clyde in the southeast, and the Northern Isles. You can visit most by air or ferry, and Skye by car! They are sure to be the highlight of your Scottish vacation.
Northeast Scotland
Northeast Scotland is home to the `Granite City`, Aberdeen, and Grampian, as well as Angus and Dundee; a region with multifaceted appeal, home to more castles than anywhere in the UK, with a big, glitzy city strewn about by quaint fishing villages. Geographically diverse, the landscape is undulating farmland leading to lovely wooded glens and dramatic coastline.
Southern Scotland
Southern Scotland encompasses the areas of Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Borders, and Ayrshire and Arran; its rich and intriguing past is never more apparent than in the wealth of small towns, postcard perfect villages, and sleepy hamlets, all with varying landscapes where each corner exposes a dramatic sense of history awaiting exploration.

Scotland and Beyond
THE HIGHLANDS

The Highlands are the reality behind the captivating images conjured by most people when thinking of Scotland. It is a beautiful and inspiring region, full of timeless landscapes and absorbing history. The dreamy, unspoilt scenery gives rise to the region's reputation as the romantic heart of the nation; with ever and fast changing weather, the snowcapped mountains can be lost in a fog instantly, sunny spells over deep blue lochs give way to dark shadows, stretches of sandy coastline are enveloped in mists, and empty glens are playgrounds for majestic red deer and eagles rule the skies.

The beauty is not the only draw of the Highlands, the area is surprisingly bustling with activity. Driving through the jaw-dropping beauty of Glencoe and Kyle of Lochalsh, you will find peace exploring Cairngorms National Park, Ben Nevis, Ardnamurchan, and Glen Affric or in the flat lands of Caithness or Fort William. Don't forget infamous Loch Ness with its titular monster. For the thrill seekers there is the ski haven of Aviemore, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Also on offer in the vast Highlands are golf, fishing, water sports, jogging, dolphin watching, and much more!
