Highlands

The Highlands of Scotland epitomises all that magnificent wild and natural Britain has to offer. It’s the place to head for if you want to immerse yourself in wonderfully contrasting and every changing landscapes and tranquil locations devoid of mass tourism.

This region extends coast to coast taking in dramatic mountains, majestic lochs, heather clad moors and picturesque glens; quiet and unspoilt, nature as it was intended. It’s the perfect location for relaxing breaks, activity holidays, family holidays and romantic get-aways.

Full of historic interest at every turn, with ancient monuments and castles that tell the tale of the Highland clans, and there are plenty of great day outs, places of interest and activities to keep visitors fully occupied in this most beautiful part of the British Isles.

The Highlands region consists of distinctive sub-regions each with their own characteristics and unique charms, extending from Fort William and Lochaber in the south to the Northern Highlands.

Fort William is considered by many as the ‘outdoor capital’ of Scotland, this bustling town situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe has lots of places to eat and drink, interesting shops and is a great base for a wide selection of outdoor activities. The town is handy for trips into the dramatic and brooding Glen Coe and is the ‘road to the Isles’ which takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The town is also right next to the world famous Ben Nevis (and its glen), Scotland’s highest mountain.

To the north is the iconic Loch Ness, some 23 miles long and 700 feet deep; in fact deep enough for a monster. Take a cruise to visit Urquhart Castle a once famous Great Glen fortress; there’s a visitor centre both here and on shore at Drumnadrochit.

‘The city of the Highlands’ Inverness is today a modern thriving city on the banks of the River Ness. It has a rich historical and cultural history with plenty of attractions including a great castle. Close by is Fort George a well preserved 18th century fortification built in the terrible aftermath of the Battle of Culloden, facing out over the Moray Firth.

To the east are the Black Isle and the Moray Firth, dotted with traditional fishing villages, hidden bays and golden sandy beaches. It’s a renowned dolphin watching area where you can see them quite close up from the shore if you’re lucky.

Further north still is the awe inspiring Northern Highlands, with plenty of castles and ancient monuments, massive lochs, atmospheric mountains and glens and magnificent coastlines that stretch for miles. This is a sparsely populated region where you can really get away from everyday life and connect with nature.

If you’re ready to begin your adventure take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in the Highlands today.

    Beech House is situated in one of the most idyllic and unique locations in the Scottish Highlands, with wide and awe-inspiring views across the Great Glen to the North face of Ben Nevis, which dominates the landscape and can be admired whilst luxuriating in the hot tub!  Built as the new croft house for Seangan in 1986 and subsequently extended, this exceptionally large, bright and spacious house is situated on a working croft on the banks of the Caledonian Canal.  The farm has been in the current family for well over a hundred years and the owners welcome visitors to experience the peace and tranquillity of the Highland croft lifestyle in one of the most renowned and unspoilt area of the British Isles.
    Situated just 5 miles from Fort William, the opportunities for sport and outdoor recreation are second to none.  Climbing, hill-walking, canoeing, sailing, golf, fishing, skiing and cycling are all available within close proximity and the Great Glen Way stretching from Fort William to Inverness is close by. Whether you would like to tackle one of the many Munros in the area (mountains about 3,000 feet), or prefer to wander through the foothills of Glen Nevis, (where the film Braveheart was made),with its pretty riverside walks, or even take the gondola ride up the ski slopes to savour the spectacular views from the top, there is something for all abilities.  The world mountain biking championships are held here annually, and the trails offer a variety of routes for all levels.  Take a trip to Mallaig on the ’road to the isles’ just 2 miles from the property, or travel via the famous steam train of Harry Potter fame, which runs along this route.  From there it is just a short ferry ride away to the Isle of Skye, and the smaller isles of Muck, Eigg and Rhum.  A day out on the Arnamurchan Peninsular, via the Corran car ferry (5 minute boat ride) is a must.  With its beautiful coastline, its pretty hamlets and villages untouched by time, and its lighthouse situated on the  most westerley point in Britain, this will prove to be a unique and memorable experience.  The rugged beauty of nearby Glencoe, the seclusion of Loch Arkaig (location of the film Rob Roy), and the quiet tranquillity of the Caledonian Canal all contribute to the incomparable qualities of this area and combine to make this lovely house and ideal base for exploring the heart of the Western Highlands.  Beech House is particularly suited to a two family or extended family holiday as it can accommodate larger groups. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    This outstanding holiday property enjoys an enviable and peaceful setting amidst the beautifully tended grounds of Ness Side Estate, just yards from the banks of the River Ness on the outskirts of the Highland capital of Inverness. Holm Lodge offers spacious, beautifully presented accommodation, furnished and equipped to a very high standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible, and is the perfect setting for family gatherings, special occasions or just a relaxing break. Egyptian sheets and towels are used for that extra quality and comfort.
    The location makes this the perfect base for exploring the many delights of this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. Take a cruise on nearby Loch Ness with Urquhart Castle on its shores, visit the Cairngorm National Park with Aviemore at its centre, or slightly further afield, take a day trip to the beautiful Isle of Skye or north to the Orkney Islands. The area is renowned for the large number of historical attractions, which include Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Cawdor and Brodie Castles to name just a few. Inverness has a large variety of restaurants, pubs and shops along with Eden Court Theatre and a 10-screen cinema.
    Amongst the many activities available include golfing on some of Scotland’s most spectacular courses – Macdonald Spey Valley, Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart with the Fairways Course and driving range just a very short drive from the lodge. Mountain biking, watersports, fishing, climbing and hill walking are also widely available. Salmon fishing on the River Ness is also available subject to availability and by prior arrangement with the Estate. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
