When it comes to spending time in the spectacularly rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands, there’s always so much to see and do, no matter the season.
Spring sees the arrival of blooming daffodils and bluebells lining woodland trails. In summer, the Highland hillsides burst into colour. Whereas autumn really showcases the Highlands at their peak, with the leaves changing to golden and the lochs glittering in the crisp sunlight. But, let’s be honest, the hardy Scots were made in the winter, with a warming “dram” and a plate of traditional haggis, neeps and tatties proving a welcome treat after a hike around the snowy glens.
And with many a bolthole to cosy up in after your Highland adventures, it can be tough to decide which one to go for. So, from plush luxury hotels to boutique-style lodges, here are my personal favourites.
