Inverness & The Scottish Highlands

OVERVIEW

Scottish Highlands are all about one’s imagination about Scotland coming to reality. There is plenty to see and do outdoors in this nature’s bounty. Fishing is a popular pursuit in the Highlands, with a fantastic range of catch on offer including salmon and trout. The abundance of mountains, rivers and lakes makes it conducive to some breath-taking waterfalls including Britain’s highest.

Inside of nature, the Highlands are home to the bulk of Scotland’s distilleries, some of which can be combined in a golf and whisky trail.

Inverness, the administrative centre for the Highlands also serves as the ideal base to tour around the countryside. A cruise on the Loch Ness, with stories of Nessie the fabled monster is always in order.

The extraordinary beautiful terrain lends to outstanding golf course design and there is plenty of evidence. Royal Dornoch Links is considered amongst the best golf courses in the world, (Tom Watson said “The most fun I have ever had playing golf”) and boasts of members like Tom Watson, Greg Norman and Prince Andrew. Other highlights include Castle Stuart and Nairn.
