The only major city in the Highlands is Inverness, classically combined with mountains, lochs and rivers, glens and rugged coastline.
The Strathspey region , South of Inverness with a combination of villages along the River Spey is dominated by the dramatic Cairngorm mountains, outstanding scenery and huge outdoor activity opportunities.
