8The Enchanted Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are captivating year-round, but in the fall, they take on a mystical charm that is hard to resist. The rolling hills and rugged landscapes become a canvas of fiery colors as the heather and bracken turn shades of russet and purple.

Take a scenic drive along the North Coast 500, stopping at Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle, and Glencoe, and soak in the tranquility of the Highlands. Don’t forget to warm up with a dram of Scotch whisky by a crackling fireplace at one of the cozy Highland lodges.
