Listen to the dramatic landscape and let your imagination run free. Ruined castles, remote villages, enchanting lochs and rugged coastlines whisper captivating tales of their mysterious past. Magical hikes through ancient glens and soaring bens, heathered moors and rocky mountain peaks feed your mind's eye. Even at night, legends are chronicled in luxurious castle retreats and cozy lodges by crackling fires, perhaps embellished with a wee dram of whiskey and the echo of a bagpipe.
