The Scottish Highlands is a rural part of the country


"It’s beautiful there – a lovely part of the world," WritewyattUK reported.

The Scottish Highlands is a rural place, with rolling mountains and breathtaking lakes.

"The Scottish Highlands is really the Scotland of your imagination and the perfect backdrop for your next adventure," Visit Scotland stated.

"It's no wonder that it was named as one of National Geographic's 'Best of the World' destinations in 2023.

"Explore the mysterious Loch Ness or pass through the striking Cairngorms National Park.

"Walk up Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis, or discover the rugged coastline of Caithness."

Those looking to live in the area may be able to get a property bargain.

Houses sold for an average of £210,105 in the Highlands and Islands in the past year, according to Rightmove.
