Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands is a rolling mountain region in northwest Scotland. The region contains more wilderness and higher peaks than anywhere else in the United Kingdom, Hundreds of summits top 3,000 feet, and seven exceed 4,000 feet, rising proudly above deep glacially-eroded valleys. The mountains to the north and west are the most spectacular. Along the indented west coast, they rise dramatically from the sea, and many summits rise from offshore islands such as the islands of Skye, Mull and Arran. The Highlands are a far north region, and winter conditions include severe Arctic weather and minimal daylight. The mountains are snow-covered for much of the year, though there are no glaciers. The highest and most famous of the Scottish peaks is Ben Nevis (4406 ft/1343 m).
