Easter is fast approaching, and it is the perfect time to plan for a Scottish staycation! We have pulled together a list of the reasons Highland Holidays is the ideal location for your next Easter escape.
The Scottish Highlands are known worldwide for its stunning scenery. From towering snow capped mountain ranges, and vast pine tree forests, to rolling hills and breathtaking lochs reaching out to the Atlantic. Our part of the Highlands is so scenic, it’s no surprise that film location scouts have chosen it so many times for film shoots!
We’ll run you through some of the most iconic spots in Lochaber and North Argyll you might recognise from the big screen – and how to go and see them in real life. With some of the most incredible scenery in the UK, the West Highlands will leave you awestruck – it’s a part of the world that will stay with you long after you’ve left.
Jam-pack your days with action or explore at your own pace. The Highlands are a wonderful part of the world and it’s yours to discover! Activities are endless with mountain biking, fishing, sailing, pony-trekking and all kinds of winter and water sports available. Don’t let the weather rain on your parade, there are plenty of indoor activities to keep you busy when it’s raining!
Check out our Explorer Rewards for a list of local businesses offering exclusive discounts to guests looking to make the most of their holiday to the Highlands. From Sea Kayaking, Wildlife Cruises, and Guided Walks, you won’t be stuck for something to do. Make the most of your adventure with off-road segways, target sports, archery, and even spear throwing! There’s plenty of activities to choose from, right on your doorstep.
