Wild, rugged and romantic are the three words that spring to mind when we cast our thoughts to the depths of the Scottish Highlands. With many a myth and legend being sung from these undulating lands, there is a unique strident beauty to this area that changes from season to season.
During the wilds of the winter months the snow covered numerous National Parks, such as Cairngorms, beckon winter enthusiasts for the uncrowded ski areas. The sublime winter sunsets casting their warm hues over the breath taking horizons, announcing time for your retreat back home. And with the promise of a fireside 'Dram' at the end of the day awaiting you in your very own Gothic Castle, it's all very "Wuthering Heights meets Pride & Prejudice!"
Come the wakening of Spring and Summer, the Lochs such as Loch Ness, Loch Lomond & Loch Laggan, lose their 'winter skin' and in place are these glistening lakes nestled at the foot of the mountains. Skirted with many a private beach and studded with country Estates, Scotland hosts many a UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
And let's not forget Scotland's cities. The capital, Edinburgh, is one of Europe's most vibrant and cultural city. With the iconic Castle overlooking and keeping guard of her historic city, Edinburgh hosts The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Festival in summer, along with the ever popular Hogmanay at New Year. And let's not forget, Burns Night. With some of the leading chefs of the world choosing Edinburgh as their home, there is a culinary Enlightenment taking place in Scotland. But we're thrilled to see the classics still remain...a trip to Scotland would not be the same without a dish of Haggis, Neeps & Tatties! Washed down with Whiskey...!
