There are many important historical attractions in Scotland, and part of what makes a visit to the country so special is the way in which these cultural sites are set within the raw scenery of the landscape, be it the moody streets of Edinburgh, or the serene countryside. The most famous of the Scottish regions, however, is most certainly that of the Scottish Highlands, which is home to a range of towering mountains, pristine lochs, and a coastline that features dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches. Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to enjoy, as they can hike to the peaks of Munros like Ben Hope, fly fish in rivers like the Shin, and explore important pieces of history like the ruins of Castle Varrich and Ardvreck Castle, all just a short trip from most hotels.

Scotland might not be the first country you think of when the word beach comes to mind, but the Highlands are home to some astounding stretches, the curved bay of Clachtoll Beach with its white sand, turquoise waters, and rocky-outcrops, makes for an ideal place to relax and unwind.
