Scotland is a country in north-western Europe, sharing a 96 km long land border with England to the south and separated from Northern Ireland by the North Channel of the Irish Sea.

Scotland is surrounded by the North Sea to the east, and the North Atlantic Ocean to the west and north. The capital city is Edinburgh and the largest city is Glasgow.  It is famous primarily for its spectacular scenery, but it also offers a rich historical and cultural heritage, together with a wide range of activities.

Applecross

Applecross is reached by driving over the the Bealloch or Pass of the Cattle the highest road in Britain and was highlighted by Monty Halls TV series. Fantastic scenery and you can make it a round trip by coming back the coastal road to Shieldaig. Try and go on a clear dry day to make the best of  views from the top of hill as the Outer Hebridies can be seen in the distance.


Beinn Eighe reserve

Just outside Kinlochewe is the Beinn Eighe mountain reserve. It has a visitor centre and two very well maintained trails. The woodland trail and the mountain trail. Both the walks pass through the remains of the great Caledonian forest. The views from the top of the mountain trail over Loch Maree and Wester Ross are absolutely stunning.


Loch Ness

Dark-watered, deep and mysterious, the Loch Ness is the instantly recognized lake not only in Scotland but worldwide. It stretches for over 20 miles along the natural geological cleft from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the north. Reaching as deep as 740 feet, the loch is the largest one in Scotland by volume.

It's probably in the abysmal depths that the scary but much beloved monster, Nessie, dwells. Although numerous sightings of the creature have been reported over the centuries, first one in 585, strangely enough very little evidence exists to give some credence.

With or without the gigantic monster, Loch Ness is a magnetic destination of rugged hills climbing steeply, luscious greenery and somewhat misty and elusive charm present in places like Urquhart Bay with the Castle Urquhart, Scotland's largest stronghold or enticing spots of Invermoriston and Fort Augustus. Enjoy!
