The Highlands is the general term for the most northerly and westerly parts of the British mainland. They cover all areas north and west of the geological fault called the Highland Boundary Fault which runs from the Isle of Arran and Helensburgh in the west to Stonehaven in the east.
The Highlands region is home to the highest mountains and the deepest bodies of water in the UK, and some of the wildest and most picturesque scenery in the world. It is also very narrow in places, and from the peak of one of our local Munros Sgurr na Lapaich (3,773ft) the North sea and the Atlantic ocean can both be seen from the same spot in clear weather.
Eagle Brae sits at the very heart of the Highlands, just north of Loch Ness. The perfect base to explore the Highland region in all directions.
