Competition: win a luxury holiday in the Scottish Highlands!

Scottish-Highlands

We’ve probably mentioned this more than a couple of times on this blog but the Scottish Highlands would most definitely find a place on our list of one of the most underrated travel destinations in the world. Its landscapes – which are among the most extensive and unspoilt wilderness areas in Europe – have been virtually unchanged for centuries. Peppered with wild romantic landscapes, ancient woodlands, majestic castles and picture-perfect lochs Scotland is blessed with some truly sublime scenery! There will be also plenty of alone time, the romantic landscapes have an unearthly stillness and in the less touristy areas you’re unlikely to spot anyone else for miles. If you fancy discovering the beauty of these ancient Celtic landscapes for yourself, then now’s your chance! Visit Scotland are running a fabulous competition to win a seven night self catering stay at the luxurious four star Highland Holidays Cottages in Gairloch. It even has it’s own private beach access – pure bliss!

Gairloch beach

Gairloch is a small picturesque village located right on the shores of the stunning Loch Gairloch in Wester Ross, North-West Highlands of Scotland. One of Britain’s remotest wilderness areas, it’s perched on a beautiful peninsula amid rugged landscapes and rocky peaks and blessed with fine sandy beaches and lush sub-tropical scenery. Explore the pristine coastline and then pay a visit to Inverewe Gardens at Poolewe where you can enjoy a private tour and afternoon tea at the world-famous Inverewe Gardens in Poolewe (which is included in the competition). Other activities to choose from include marine wildlife tours that can be taken from the harbour, including whale watching and also a visit to an art gallery. If that doesn’t float your boat then you can always just gawp at the endless amount of awe-inspiring scenery! Just don’t forget to bring along your camera!
