  1. Loch Lomond. Located not far from Glasgow, this is one of the most picturesque and glorious parts of Scotland. It’s not as far up as the Highlands and is nicely contained within the Trossachs mountain region.
  2. Dumfries and Galloway. The Lowlands of Scotland are not as low as you’d think! This South West corner of Scotland is one of the most iconic of its areas as it is the home of the great poet Robert Burns. With a fantastic coastline full of otters and birdlife it’s a great place for nature lovers.
  3. Inverness and the surrounding area. The city of Inverness is the capital of the Highlands. It sits at the top of Loch Ness and is a vibrant place. Culloden and Fort George are nearby, along with the Black Island.

  1. Fort William and Ben Nevis. Nevis is the tallest mountain in Britain and the town of Fort William is worth the lengthy drive along the A89 to reach it.
  2. Glen Coe. It may be the site of a notorious event in Scotland’s history but it is also one of the most stunning and dramatic parts of the country.
