Highland Explorer are based in Easter Ross in the Tain and Invergordon area, so we are well placed to support the many accommodation businesses on the east coast, from Inverness to Brora and beyond. This region of Scotland has recently become much more popular, thanks to the emergence of the North Coast 500, as a world-class driving route and holiday destination. But the North Highlands is not just about the NC 500 – there are many other parts to it, from the Isle of Skye, to the Outer Hebrides and the Orkney and Shetland Isles in the far north.


What is it that makes Scotland so special? As a holiday destination it has many advantages, not least that it is both clean and safe. There are few countries in the world that offer so much, in such a compact and relatively accessible space. You could be on a deserted beach in the Outer Hebrides in the morning and watching the Royal Military Tattoo in Edinburgh in the evening. Scotland has something for everyone – from a long and fascinating history, to home-grown products that conquered the world – Golf and Whisky! A thriving outdoors sector, dramatic scenery, nature and wildlife, amazing food and beverage produce and world-class events from festivals to sporting meets.
