Scenery that stands the test of time. At 3,000 million years old the geology of the Highlands is, quite simply, unique. Scotland boasts 3 European Geoparks – North West Highlands Geopark, Lochaber Geopark and Shetland Geopark. Geoparks are places where you will experience the incredible legacy left by an extraordinary geological past. Geotrail leaflets and ranger guided walks unlock the secrets of the past.

Throughout the country, the scenery – breathtaking landscapes, ancient Caledonian Pine forests and dramatic seascapes – has to be seen to be believed.
