We’ve all heard wonderful things about the charming, passionate people of the Highlands. But first, let us introduce you to a few of the Highlands’ most mesmerising experiences where you’ll not only meet the locals, but have nights to remember, witness spellbinding resident wildlife, and much more besides.
If you're keen for a ceilidh, you’ve come to the right region. It’s a wonderful way to make new friends and show off your fancy footwork! A place that is famous for throwing a good party and its great ceilidhs is the Isle of Eigg. Don’t worry, there will always be a helpful soul on the dancefloor to show you the steps if you’re not sure. Can’t make it to the Isle of Eigg at the moment? You can also look out for ceilidhs taking place across the Highlands, or join in our interactive ceilidh experience without moving a muscle!
The area is a haven for wildlife and the changing weather of spring brings out animals from their winter hides, which you can spot on cruises, walks, and more. Get off the beaten track on a Land Rover Safari at Glencoe, or explore on the water with Loch Shiel Cruises for a chance to see golden eagles, among other birds of prey. Or why not wander through the Glenborrodale RSPB reserve in Ardnamurchan to discover birds and witness over 600 species of flowering plants? You can see why Lochaber is the Outdoor Capital of the UK: incredible scenery, wild visitors, and the UK’s deepest sea loch, Loch Morar. What will you spot here?
