On the Map: Stay Amongst the Wild Beauty of the Scottish Highlands

25 January 2021

“My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go,” wrote Robert Burns, Scotland’s ‘National Bard’ back in 1789.  

Steeped in myth and legend, the Scottish Highlands lend themselves pleasingly well to verse, which is why the tradition of celebrating Burns Night has only grown stronger as the years have passed!

We know that Burns Night celebrations are going to be very different in 2021. But you can still pay tribute in style, by browsing our list of some of the most awe-inspiring Highland retreats, and planning a well-deserved trip to immerse yourselves in that unique Scottish culture.
