After many years I finally re visited

The Highlands of Scotland is a place of great rugged beauty, a place where distant Islands appear and disappear from the horizon. A tantilizing landscape to test your patience, where mountains and hills stand majestically before you - then like the Islands great clouds close in and the Highlands retreat - stay a while - when the sun shines - even briefly - your senses will indeed be rewarded.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The most scenic part of Scotland
  • Cons:The Weather might just obscure your view
  • In a nutshell:Give it time Patience is a Virtue!!

    Excellent Highland travel page with superb photographs. Loch Ness and Ben Nevis certainly look interesting to visit and explore and so are the suspention bridge and the castle. Thanks for the virtual tour. ~ho & pang

    Lovely page, full of interest, only wish you could send some of those deep Lochs over here, we need them! Accommodation very nice, worth remembering, thanks!

    It really is a lovely area with so much greenery and monsters in the water, but harmless except for tourists.

    What a lovely description of the Highlands - and the photos make me yearn to be there, exploring the mountains with you.
