The area of Scotland from Lochaber to Durness is one of the most spectacular and isolated in Scotland. It is a landscape cut with great sea lochs and towering mountains. It is the heartland of the Scottish clans, and it was here that the Jacobite cause lingered longest and with greatest force. As well as being a barrier, these mountains and lochs were also an artery across Scotland. It was up the Great Glen that Columba travelled to convert the Picts, it was through the passes that Montrose swept to rout the Campbells at Inverlochy. It is a land rich in relics and magnificent scenery.
