Bealach na Ba Road Applecross
#1 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
It is well worth the effort as the views from the summit are spectacular, if you have the weather to see, how ever in the mist and fog the road is equally enchanting, just take it easy on the hairpins!
Amazing experience - so rural - challenging, stunning views, scenery etc. Love the roads in the Northern Highlands

The views from the boat were truly stunning and the opportunities to go inside the caves, was the icing on the cake of a memorable and enjoyable trip, Would recommend this highly!
There were so many birds, cliffs, caves, and sights to see on this trip and our guide was very knowledgeable.
Duncansby Head John O'Groats
#3 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
The short drive (or walk) from John O Groats is good fun and there is plenty of parking at the Lighthouse with great sea views to the south, north and west because you are right on the tip of Scotland.
Superb walk along a well fenced and safe footpath to view amazing rock formations and numerous sea birds.

You can drive at your own very leisurely pace with frequent stops to view the scenery and wildlife and the picturesque loch and dam at the end of the road.
Walking on a clear track along fields by the river, you can stay choose to continue at a low level of climb up from the hydro station for fabulous views.

Commando Monument Spean Bridge
#10 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
Latterly the memorial garden on site has been used to commemorate fallen Commando soldiers from more recent wars, and there are green berets from Commando troops who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.
... and you will be travelling on a single track road, but the journey will be so worth it, especially if the Ben (Ben Nevis) is clear from clouds as you will get great views of the Caledonian Canal and the Ben.

Whaligoe Steps Whaligoe
#11 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
This spot is both worth visiting for the beautiful view and scenery as well for the history of the fisherwomen using the steps and the natural harbour it was used for.
I was a wee but sceptical about visiting these steps as of reviews I have heard, however upon arrival I was mesmerized with the breathtaking views and the steps are bigger then I though.

Culloden Battlefield Culloden Moor
#14 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
The Culloden Battlefield visit includes an outstanding museum/visitor center, a great audio guide, and a beautiful yet very emotional trail around the battle site.
The Visitor Centre is incredible -- very easy to follow history of the Jacobites, re-enactment of the battle itself, and a bird's-eye-view of the movements of both armies during the (very brief) battle.

Eilean Donan Castle Kyle of Lochalsh
#21 of 168 Sights & Landmarks in Scottish Highlands
Eilean Donan Castle is everything you dream and imagine a centuries old castle to be- from the approach to the foot bridge to the great hall- there is history in every stone and the views are picturesque.
This statuesque, quintessential Scottish, historic castle site is off the beaten path, but if you are I the Highlands and on the way to Skye especially, iris worth a diversion.

We really enjoyed our trip to the lighthouse - stunning views & the guide was an excellent raconteur making sure we had all the history of the lighthouse & the life of a lighthouse keeper.
The lighthouse exhibition is worthwhile as includes entry up the steps to the top of the lighthouse, amazing views from the top and really interesting history from the guide.

You can literally stand among the ruins and picture the layout of the grounds, see the remarkable views the inhabitants would have been accustomed to each day and if your inclined feel it's haunting presence.

It's a wonderfully well-preserved structure built on a hill, the site of old castles, against a magnificent backdrop of the western Cairngorms.

A wee bridge that makes Nice evening walk a bit of an experience and has great views of the river and when you walk over the bridge you can feel it move and it is also a quick way into the town centre
In the very City centre there are two walking bridges to cross river Ness, use them as only cyclist can cross with you it is safe and enjoyable to view Inverness from river side.
