Scottish Highlands

 

Even its name only brings to mind images of mountains, heathers, rocks, castles, romance and tragedies.

And indeed, Scottish Highlands have it all!

The combination of seascapes with an unlimited view, live traditions and nostalgic feelings are what give Highlands this irresistible charm.

It is true that the weather is not always enjoyable, but the rain fits in the waterfalls and adds artistic strokes of fog…

The Highlands are a sparsely populated area where you can still find narrow streets that only one can pass through, and more sheep than people, while life is running at a slower pace and many times hotels and restaurants are running less hours, but your reward would be peace and calm so wear your most comfy shoes, grab your camera and go!
