Scottish Highlands

Filled with more natural and historical mystique than people, the rocky Highlands are where Scottish dreams are set. The evocative "Weeping Glen" of Glencoe aches with both history and natural beauty. Legends of Bonnie Prince Charlie linger around crumbling castles as tunes played by pipers in kilts swirl around tourists. The Highlands are the most mountainous, least inhabited, and — for many — most scenic and romantic part of Scotland.
