What’s on Northern Highlands

The Northern Highlands is one of Scotland’s wildest, most unspoilt and dramatic attractions, from the grand beauty of the northwest to the remote and rugged shorelines of the north coast. The stark and marshy land of Caithness and Sutherland provide safe haven for many rare species of wildlife. And the area is steeped in human heritage, with archaeological gems such as the Grey Cairns of Camster marking the birth of 5000 years of Pictish, Viking and Gaelic history.
