What to see & do

The Scottish Highlands has so much to offer.... spectacular mountains, waterfalls, tumbling rivers and mirror-like lochs are bounded by crystal-clear seas scattered with magical islands.

But there's more than scenery to keep you occupied - whether you are looking for an action-packed adventure holiday or a taste of the local culture and history, the Highlands of Scotland is the place to come.

So, for more ideas on what to see and do, read on - you'll find castles, museums, steam trains, boat trips, gardens, whisky, ancient monuments, arts and crafts galore and visitor centres featuring subjects as diverse as wildlife, history, heritage and even monsters!

And, for the active visitor why not try some of the activities for which the area is famous - walking, cycling, golfing, kayaking, sailing, pony trekking, skiing.....

For more information on extreme adventure in the Highlands see the VisitScotland Active website.
