Living in the Highlands

Improve your quality of life and come to the Highlands of Scotland.  The region has stunning natural beauty and the remote location provides great appeal for those with an adventurous spirit; an ideal place to achieve the perfect work life balance.  Each community across Highland is unique - influenced by history and a strong cultural heritage.  We have a reputation for low crime, quality housing and excellent state schools.

The highlands boasts some of the best outdoors activities with the Cairngorm National Park, the Great Glen, Loch Ness and Ben Nevis on your door step which will allow you unleash your inner child!  Get involved in water sports or snow sports, take in breathtaking views with excellent walking and cycling routes or even maybe visit the only sleddog centre.

As capital of the Highlands, Inverness has an infrastructure that exceeds what you would expect from its population base.  There are rail links to all other cities in Scotland and an airport with daily flights to domestic destinations such as London or Manchester and European cities like Amsterdam.  It is a modern, thriving city with an excellent selection of leisure facilities, modern theatre and a bustling shopping centre.
