Things to See & Do in the Northern Highlands
The Northern Highlands are as stunningly unique and beautiful as they are wild and untamed. Castle ruins tell many a tale, the lochs and beaches are bountiful and the mountains rise to command the skyline.
Wonderful local folk museums are aplenty and the Highland clearance villages must be seen to be truly understood. Boat trips to see puffins and whales can be found all around the northern coastline, along with villages offering the very best of local food and crafts.
If you are visiting to do the North Coast 500, we would like to suggest you take your time and go off-piste! Many amazing local businesses and attractions are to be found off the main route and you really don’t want to miss out. Wonderful local craft co-operatives, ice-cream parlours, seafood restaurants and friendly accommodation all await you.
