This Magical Place in Europe Isn't Where you Think it Is

The Highlands: Scotland’s vast, beautiful and melancholy soul can be found there. An epic land with a stark and bewitching historical beauty that undeniably leaves its imprint on the souls of those who journey through it; you wouldn’t believe that such a mystical place exists at all.

Mist, mountains, rocks, fields of heather, herds of deer and the most Instagrammable autumnal evenings are just some of the things to look forward to in this part of the world. In a nutshell, the place is simply magical.

Whatever the weather, outdoors is the place to be. From woodland strolls to thrilling mountain-bike descents, sea-kayaking to Munro-bagging, beachcombing to bird-watching, grab a pair of Hunters and explore Scotland’s vast wilderness before everybody else does. And if you’re not convinced, just look at these stunning photos of the place below:
