The area of the Highlands northeast of Loch Lomond has the most beautiful and romantic scenery in Scotland, with wild moors, mountains and lochs. The central Highland area is within easy access of Glasgow and Edinburgh. The West Highlands includes the famous Loch Ness and Britain's highest mountain - Ben Nevis. Loch Ness is probably most well known for the sightings of its ‘monster' affectionately known as ‘Nessie.' Fort William is a popular town situated on the West Highland railway on the shores of Loch Linnhe. The Northern Highlands have a unique quality of light and space as the wide skies and ever-present sea create an enchanting atmosphere.
