Xmas Breaks in the Highlands: What to look forward to this Festive Season

Christmas in Scotland doesn’t get much better than a Highland Xmas breaks. The Highlands are special all year round and Christmas is no exception. It is truly magical in the city of Inverness with canopies of Christmas lights creating a cosy feel over some of the city’s oldest streets. The often-photographed nearby River Ness, with its tree lined paths, has an added bonus during the winter months. It has thousands of tiny twinkling lights brightening up the beautiful trees. Quite an amazing sight to see!

Country Cottages in the Highlands

What’s more, in the magnificent surrounding countryside, the hills are often covered with a light dusting of snow and the Lochs begin to freeze over. Glen Affric, often described as ‘the most beautiful Glen in Scotland’ has one of the last pockets of ancient Caledonian Forest in Scotland and is home to a variety of wildlife. Stay in one of our cosy Highland country cottages to really make the most of our spectacular scenery.
