The remote highlands of Scotland have all the makings of a great adventure. Spectacular mountain scenery. Deep fresh-water lochs. The best salmon rivers in the world. Magical islands that reach out into the Atlantic. History that’s as dramatic as the landscape. Just a few hours drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow and you’re in the Great Glen – 80 miles of lochs and rivers running from Fort William to Inverness. Or take a ferry to the Outer Hebrides; famous for its wildlife, white sand beaches and turquoise waters. In the far North there’s the Neolithic sites, seal colonies and puffins of the Orkney Islands. Along the way Art Tours can arrange visits to distilleries and highland craft makers as well as stays in private castles.
