The Scottish Highlands are the reason why Scotland looks like nowhere else in the world. The rugged landscapes of the Highlands are at once formidable and beautiful. Perhaps the best way to experience the awe-inspiring natural wonders of the region is by including a leisurely road trip in your itinerary. A journey through the Highlands is a journey through the history of our planet, as the ancient rocks were formed over a period of hundreds of millions of years. The region contains some of Europe’s most extensive wilderness areas, many of which have been designated as national parks and are essential places to visit for any nature lover. Dotted with small fishing villages, the region is also a foodie's paradise, offering arguably some of the finest fresh seafood and venison delicacies in the world.
