Scotland - Southern Highlands & Islands (PDF Chapter)
This is the Southern Highlands & Islands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Scotland guidebook.
The impossibly complex coastline of Scotland’s southwest harbours some of its most inspiring corners. Sea travel is key – dozens of ferries, happily now subsidised with cheaper fares, allow you to island-hop from the scenic splendour of Arran to majestic Mull.
- explore the region’s spectacular lochscapes and accessible walking and cycling routes of the Trossachs
