Autumn trip: Scottish Highlands Castles
It’s Autumn time!! I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s the most beautiful season of the year. The yellow and red leaves, the weather slowly becoming colder, the sky full of stars saying hello earlier… Is it possible not to love it? It is also the perfect time for a small romantic trip, after all, it is not too hot or too cold, and the landscapes… ohh the landscapes… Inspired by the Autumn, we have a suggestion for you to enjoy the best of Autumn in a good companion: a road trip through Scottish Highlands Castles!

The Scottish Highlands is a mountainous region in northwest Scotland. And it is one of the most magical travel destinations ever.

Here are some of the Castles in the region that definitely worth a visit:
Located on the banks of the famous Loch Ness, it has witnessed some of the most dramatic chapters in Scotland’s past. In the 15th and 16th centuries, it was the stage for bloody disputes between rival clans.
This is a must-go for Shakespeare’s fans. It’s nothing but the 14th century home of the Thanes of Cawdor. Also, it still has some original features from the 19th century, such as a roasting spit, ice box and butter-chur in the kitchen.
This is also a must-go for Shakespeare’s fans. The Brodie Castle is where the encounter of Macbeth with the Weird Sisters took place. Additionally, it is filled with countless antiques and lavish furnishings
This castle was home to many important families, such as the Earls and the Dukes of Sutherland. However, it is continuously inhabited since early 1300s.

This castle is located in the beautiful Isle of Skye (that by the way, is one of the most romantic destinations in the UK) and surrounded by flourishing woodland.
