The Scottish Highlands is home to some of Scotland's most spellbinding scenery. Neist Point is perfect for those who want to experience Skye's stunning scenery without enduring a hard hike. The trail to the lighthouse is paved and is 2 miles in length.    Marius Roman Getty Images

The Quiraing found in the Isle of Skye (pictured) was once a mountain, but experienced a massive landslide that made the natural wonder look as it does today.  sara_winter Getty Images

The Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye is a single, pinnacle-shaped rock formation (right) that can be spotted miles away, even from sea level.  Photo by Apisak Kanjanapusit Getty Images

With its clear blue waters and evergreen setting, the Fairy Pools of Skye really resemble the kind of watering hole you'd envision fairies congregating around. Locals, however, recommend not going for a swim as temperatures are freezing year-round.  elxeneize Getty Images

If you want to stay the night in Skye, the quaint town of Portree is your best option. It's the main town on the island and is conveniently connected to the A87 highway.  zhuzhu Getty Images

The most popular thing to do in Loch Ness is take a boat tour. While recent travelers say they didn't spot Nessie, seeing the loch from the water made their Scottish Highlands experience all the more memorable.  LordRunar Getty Images

No visit to the Scottish Highlands is complete without a visit Loch Ness, famous for the mysterious sea monster that reportedly dwells within. Travelers admit they didn't spot Nessie during their stay, but enjoyed visiting the beautiful loch for its tranquility.    RomanBabakin Getty Images

Drive along the A82 highway on the northern side of Loch Ness and you'll find areas where you can park and walk up to the loch's beautiful shores.  northlightimages Getty Images

Ben Nevis is the U.K.'s tallest mountain. The hike to the summit is a little more than 10 miles round-trip and takes about seven to nine hours to complete depending on conditions and your fitness level.  StevanZZ Getty Images

The views from Ben Nevis are said to be nothing short of spectacular.  Steffen Schnur Getty Images

This is not the kind of place where you can get away with hiking in sneakers. Many of the region's mountainous trails are known to be rocky and some summits, including Ben Nevis, are composed entirely of rock. To stay safe, proper hiking shoes are necessary.  Steffen Schnur Getty Images

England has the White Cliffs of Dover, Ireland has the Cliffs of Moher and Scotland has the cliffs in Duncansby Head. You can find Duncansby Head, with its striking sea stacks, in the northernmost region of Scotland's mainland.  marcoisler Getty Images

While at Duncansby Head, take in the cliffs from either side of the stacks, you'll be amazed at what you see.  Keith Levit / Design Pics Getty Images

Duncansby Head is a photographer's paradise. Just be cautious of getting too close to the edge of the cliffs. There are signs posted around the trail warning of erosion.  Keith Levit / Design Pics Getty Images

Recent visitors say the trail to get to Duncansby Head, especially around sunset, is a certainly a sight to behold.  Roland Gerth/Corbis Getty Images

Eilean Donan Castle is lauded for its beautiful location, acting as the junction between three different lochs. It also offers up some fascinating history, serving as a point of contention during the Jacobite era.  Petr Meissner Flickr

The stone bridge to Eilean Donan castle was not part of the castle's original design, but rather an addition by the MacRae-Gilstrap family that funded its restoration.  Shemsu.Hor Flickr

This already very romantic castle becomes even more romantic when it's illuminated at nighttime.  Albert de Bruijn Flickr

To experience the full spectrum of the Scottish Highland's geography, you must visit the beaches. The best beaches can be found on the islands, though if you don't have time to island hop, the northwest coast also has a reputation for beautiful shorelines.  VWB photos Getty Images

If you plan on visiting the Outer Hebrides (where Isle of Skye is located), check out the beautiful turquoise waters of Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris.  Studio-Annika Getty Images

One of Scotland's most stunning beaches can be found on St. Ninian's Isle in the Shetland Islands, found off the north coast of the Highlands.   Moorefam Getty Images

For some beaches in Scotland, including Camusdarach, the journey to the beach is just as beautiful as the shoreline itself.  RobertKelly1972 Getty Images

The Scottish Highlands are home to some of the most scenic golf courses in Scotland.  ImagineGolf Getty Images

Glencoe is one of travelers' favorite destinations in the Scottish Highlands. Visitors say the best way to take in the area, especially if you're short on time, is to drive along the A82 Highway into Glencoe Village, where you'll run into the pictured peaks.   Shaiith Getty Images

There are plenty of low-level hiking paths in Glencoe, particularly near Blackrock Cottage.  Westend61 Getty Images

If you're looking to get your heart pumping in Glencoe, consider hiking one of its challenging munros, such as Buachaille Etive Mor.   IƱaki B. argazkiak Getty Images

Glencoe is one of the best places to hike in the Scottish Highlands. Climb to the top of one of its munros and you'll be rewarded with spectacular views.  stuartmcgeown Getty Images

Autumn in Glencoe yields a pretty picture. If you want to hike, just make sure you visit prior to October, when hiking conditions become dangerous.  Jon Douglas Getty Images

If you're a "Harry Potter" fan, you will no doubt recognize the Glenfinnan Viaduct. The Glenfinnan Viaduct is the same viaduct that the Hogwarts Expresses passes on its way to the school in the "Harry Potter" movie franchise.   miroslav_1 Getty Images

Travelers say if you want to view the Jacobite Steam Train from under the viaduct, be sure to get there early, as the nearby parking lot spaces fill up fast.  Brandon Rosenblum Getty Images

The trail to reach this viewpoint, the Glenfinnan Trail View Point, conveniently starts at the Glenfinnan Rail Station.  Carlos G. Lopez Getty Images

Kilts actually originated in the Scottish Highlands. Back in the day, getting around the rugged terrain of the region was much easier than in pants.    British Modern Photography Getty Images

Autumn is a particularly beautiful time to visit Loch Lomond & The Trossachs.  coleong Getty Images

This national park is known for its many beautiful bodies of water. However, you should also focus on some inland hikes in the Trossachs part of the park, which is known for its beautiful forests.  daverhead Getty Images

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs was designated as Scotland's first national park in 2002. The park is famous for being home to Britain's largest loch, Loch Lomond.  marco wong Getty Images

If you're seeking a heart pumping hike in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs, consider tackling the 1,491-foot-tall Ben A'an (pictured). munro1 Getty Images

Expect all kinds of malts, from the full-bodied to the delicate, and even fruity when sampling Scotch whisky. JaimePharr Getty Images

While whisky is the national drink of Scotland, haggis (a savory pudding) is the national dish. You can't leave Scotland without trying it with a side of "neeps and tatties," or cooked rutabaga and mashed potatoes. Xtelle Getty Images
