    Our tips for Scottish Highlands
    • Take your time. There’s plenty to see and do in the Scottish Highlands. Take a few days to tour the region by car and do the historic and beautiful landscape justice.
    • Have a history lesson. Uncover the Highland’s turbulent past at the site of the Glencoe Massacre or at the Glenfinnan Monument - a tribute to the Jacobite uprisings. Plus, be sure to visit the Highland Archive Centre to research your Scottish roots.
    • Take five on-set. Netflix addicts will rejoice in visiting the real-life locations that inspired the wonderful book series turned hit TV show, Outlander, in Aberdeen. While James Bond fans can see scenes from Skyfall come to life at Glen Coe.

    Best Time To Visit Prone to horizontal rain and blistering cold winds bound to make your eyes water, the Scottish Highlands are best experienced in the milder summer months. Long evenings drape the mountains in balmy sunlight, lending a particular magic to the summer nights here. For cheaper rates though, head to the Highlands in September, just before the deep chill of winter fully kicks in.
    Getting There With winding roads, epic mountains and sprawling forest terrains, the only way to experience the Scottish Highlands in all its glory is by car or bus. Most road-trippers begin their journey to the Highlands from Edinburgh.
    Money Saving Tips All-inclusive group bus tours are plentiful and affordable in the Scottish Highlands. Solo travellers should head to the highlands in late Autumn for cheaper accommodation deals.

    • Inspired by Scotland’s never-ending downpours, Glaswegian Charles Macintosh invented the raincoat in 1824. In a nod to its founder, raincoats are still colloquially known as ”macs” today.
    • The deepest Loch in Scotland is not Loch Ness. Loch Morar is 1077-feet deep and is ranked the seventeenth deepest lake in the world.
    • The Loch Ness is said to house a monster. ‘Nessie’ was supposedly first spotted in 565AD by St Columba, with countless sightings of the monster reported since. The Loch Ness Monster hysteria reached its peak in the early 19th century, with 20 men once paid £2 a day as ‘Monster Watchers’. Although scientists have found that there is a lack of evidence to prove she really exists, many today still believe Nessie survives in the Loch Ness.
