Location
The Highlands and Islands covers some 15000 square miles - more than half of Scotland. Of the 448,000 people who live here, half are under 44. The region is also home to more than 8,000 voluntary and community groups, and over 21,000 businesses - many of them well-known global brands. The Highland capital, Inverness, is considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in the UK and frequently placed in the top five most desirable places to live. Culture, sport and entertainment in a scenic location - the Highlands and Islands has something for everyone. Its diverse and dramatic landscape is made for outdoor sports and leisure pursuits and the region is ideal for exploring a whole range of activities - from climbing, golf and fishing to sailing, skiing and hill walking. But it's not all about sport and the great outdoors. The arts play a huge role in Scottish Highland culture and identity - all over the Highlands and Islands there are plenty of opportunities to see, hear and get involved. Major rock, pop, folk and classical musical festivals take place in spectacular settings. And countless smaller venues deliver a thriving music, theatre and dance scene. The region has a rich and vibrant mix of cultural traditions, natural heritage and contemporary life. This, combined with a top-class education system, clean environment, low crime rate, affordable housing, excellent communications and a strong sense of community creates the perfect setting for family life.
