Scotland Calling: The Hills of the Highlands Forever I Love

Scotland Calling: The Hills of the Highlands Forever I Love

The brooding landscapes of the eastern Moray Firth, the rugged Torridon Hills and the Isle of Skye makes the Scottish Highlands special



I’ve
ventured to many remote parts of
Scotland
, but it’s the dramatic views of the Highlands that
continue to stimulate my mind. The brooding landscape ripples from
sandy shores of the eastern Moray Firth to the rugged Torridon
Hills and the Isle of
Skye
.

In
Scotland
‘s most remote corners, you must always prepare for the
unexpected. Even at the height of summer, you can experience
temperamental weather. Single-lane roads winding far away from
civilisation are invariably blocked off by flocks of sheep and
Highland Cows.

Raised in Central Scotland, I’ve spent much time exploring and
consuming this world-class region on my doorstep – and it’s for
this reason that I couldn’t recommend it enough for avid
travellers. The scenery alone could make the Highlands special, but
the fact that its terrain is saturated with history and teeming
with diverse wildlife – all within easy reach of Edinburgh‘s
cobbled streets – make this place one of a kind. I am grateful to
call it home.
