Whether you’re into climbing, cycling, sailing, walking, watersports or wildlife, or simply looking for a bit of peace and quiet amid dramatic scenery, Highlands and Skye has something for you. Culture and heritage is important here, too. Highland games and highland dancing are celebrated in gatherings held all over the region during the summer months, and a huge variety of music and arts events are held throughout the year.
