The Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are famous for the vast mountain ranges that dominate the landscape, providing some of the country's most spectacular views. The Highlands also boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with miles of golden sands and crystal clear waters lying in the shadow of majestic mountains.

From the Cuillin to the Cairngorms, Scotland's hills and mountains are the natural playground for the more adventurous among us. If it's a relaxing holiday you're after, you can stroll along the beach and watch the sun set the sky alight as it slowly sinks on the horizon. The Scottish Highlands really has it all.

Climb the UK's highest peak, scramble the Aonach Eagach ridge - the narrowest ridge in the UK mainland - or take to two wheels in Glen Nevis, home to the UCI Mountain Bike world cup. 

With youth and affiliate hostels located throughout the Scottish Highlands you're never too far away from a new adventure.
