Scotland’s great northern region is known as the Scottish Highlands, and for many it is considered one of the last true wildernesses of Europe, as it is home to a stunning natural beauty that is both rugged and remote. Visitors who decide to make their way north should book their hotel in the village of Lairg, which will give them excellent access to the region’s outdoor attractions and major towns and villages, as its falls at the crossroads of the regional railways. From Lairg you can set-off to explore the peaks of Munros like Ben Hope, ancient ruins like Castle Varrich, or make your way to the city of Inverness and the nearby famous Loch Ness.
