10 Best Things To Do in Scotland’s Highlands

If you want to see the impossible-looking sea stack for yourself or even scale it, it might be time to plan a trip to the Scottish Highlands and make it a goal this year.

Things To Do In Scotland’s Highlands

1. Highland Games

The Highland Games are over 1,000 years old. Clans pit themselves against each other for glory.

Initially built in the 13th century, this medieval castle on a small island is now a monument to the history of the highlands.

2. Eilean Donan Castle

3. Highland Pub

You’ll drink in some authentic highland culture as you share a swallie (drink) with the chookters (Scottish highlanders.)

4. Inverness

It’s the best place to find quality traditional kilts, learn about the battle of Culloden and the history of Scotland, and visit the oldest bar in Inverness, called Gellions.

5. Haggis

Haggis is the quintessential highlands dish; you can’t leave Scotland until you have eaten this spiced lamb wrapped in a  sheep’s stomach.
