What To See and Do
Every year many visitors come to the Highlands to experience the superb natural environment - the spectacular scenery of mountains, lochs and glens form the perfect backdrop to picturesque villages and isolated crofts as well as being home to a multitude of wildlife.
But it's not just scenery and wildlife - Inverness offers all the services and facilities you'd expect from the "City in the Highlands" while communities across the Highlands also welcome visitors. There are traces of the past too - standing stones and cairns, castles, distilleries, the Gaelic language and traditional music or crafts provide constant reminders of the distinct Highland history and culture.
Whether you are looking for an action-packed adventure hillwalking, white water canoeing, mountain biking or something a bit gentler - like a ceilidh, dolphin spotting, sampling local produce, tracing your family history or relaxing amidst the peace and quiet, the Highlands of Scotland is the place to come.
