New visitor website – Spirit of the Highlands and Islands is live!

A new website has launched this week as part of the Spirit of the Highlands and Islands project which aims to inspire visitors to explore the natural and cultural heritage of the region.

The platform provides a unique way to discover hidden gems in the Highlands and Islands through the use of crowd-sourced community stories, film, audio and itineraries.  The Spirit of the Highlands and Islands project is a partnership between The Highland Council and High Life Highland, and is delivered in collaboration with VisitScotland.

Users can explore the area using the website in various ways including by regions, locations, themes, and itineraries, with each leading to inspiring imagery, videography and audio-stories. 

For those looking for inspiration, there are several fantastic itineraries, some spanning a few days and others offering inspiration for day trips. The itineraries have varied themes to spark interest with visitors, for example, food and drink, coastal day trips, traditional knitwear, literature and film locations.

Visitors can access and explore the platform by visiting:
