The Scottish Highlands is the right place for those seeking a retreat for a little relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests booking into spa hotels are in for a seriously soothing time, especially with the amount of leisurely activities to pursue outside the hotel grounds.
Relaxing Activities in the Scottish Highlands
Fort William is home to what was voted as ‘Top Railway Journey in the World’. The Jacobite steam train takes guests on a two and a half hour journey to Mallaig, chugging over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, which featured in the popular Harry Potter films. It goes past Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and arrives at a small fishing town for visitors to wander around. From here, you can either choose to continue exploring by taking a ferry over to the Isle of Skye, or head back to your hotel for another massage.
Restaurants in the Scottish Highlands specialise in locally sourced seafood and many have won awards for serving up delicious dishes. Wash it down with a dram of whiskey from a nearby distillery or an pint of ale from the region’s offerings of breweries.
