The Scottish Highlands are a historic area, having once been a populated and tight knit area.
Today, the area is sparsely populated, retaining much of its original drama and beauty. The Jacobite Rulings of the 18th Century attempted to outlaw and break up the highland way of life, from the existing `Clan System` to wearing Tartan. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution people fled to major cities, and the Highlands have remained virtually unchanged since. In this fascinating vacation package, you get to visit these beautiful areas at your own leisure with a rental car.
