Over Easter weekend, Pheobe and I took the opportunity to explore the “#wildandsexy Scottish Highlands” with Haggis Adventures and wow…what a weekend it was!

We were guided by our trusty leader Fiona and her “side-kick” Joe. Although we couldn’t understand most of what Joe was saying, given his think Highlander accent (there was a lot of smile and nodding going on) we were shown some pretty incredible places that you need to visit while here in the UK.

For you Whiskey fans out there, a tour of a Highland distillery definitely needs to be on the list! We visited the Tomatin distillery and learned about it’s unique history which began in 1897. There was snow on the ground but the whiskey tasting really warmed us from the inside out. And let’s be honest – no trip to Scotland is complete without some Scotch Whiskey.

If you’re a fan of Patrick Dempsey then a trip to Eilean Donan Castle is for you. As seen in the movie “Made of Honour” this magical 13th century castle on Loch Duick looks like is comes straight out of a fairy tale and has an incredibly rich history. If you aren’t a fan of Patrick Dempsey- then still, who doesn’t love a castle?

If whiskey and castles aren’t enough then the stunning scenery surely will seal the deal for booking a trip with Haggis Adventures. The Isle of Skye was for sure a highlight of ours with its rugged and untouched landscape.

To top all of it off, was the unbelievable Glen Coe. Not many more words can describe this place so see the pictures below. Although, pictures also can’t really recreate the feeling of standing in the middle of the valley and looking up at the awesome mountains. So just go there yourself…….please.

These are only are just a snapshot of the highlights we enjoyed, not to mention seeing Ben Nevis in all its glory, trying to spot Nessie in Loch Ness and even enjoying a night out with the locals in Inverness. Needless to say the trip was brilliant.  

Over 2 nights and 3 days we not only got explore the incredible Scottish Highlands but we also made new friends for life! Whether you are in a group or by yourself, you are guaranteed an epic trip which you will never forget.
