There is so much to see in the Highlands that it is hard to know where to start. In the south there is Loch Ness - is there really a monster lurking in the depths of loch? The west coast draws more visitors each year - and for good reason - but if you want peace and wide-open spaces try the northeast Highlands. On the other hand, the mountains and coast of north west Sutherland and Wester Ross are truly spectacular, while further south is the magical Isle of Skye, one of ou own favourite places in Britain. If you want something a bit less spectaular - and easier to get to - than the Highlands, check the listings for self catering in Grampian (Aberdeenshire and Moray) which borders the Scottish Highlands area to the east and south. For alternative accommodation, see our Highlands hotel guide, or our guide to Bed and Breakfasts in the Highlands. For suggestions on what to see and do in the area, visit our Scotland Travel Guide and Highlands Travel Information pages.
