Where is Tarwathie Scotland

Scotland's North West - from the Highlands to the Outer Hebrides

The landscape in the Scottish Highlands is wild and full of harsh beauty. A paradise for outdoor fans and lovers of myths and traditions. Tamina Kallert's journey begins with a ride in Harry Potter's "Hogwarts Express", the train in which the film was also made. On her other stops, she experiences the Corryvreckan whirlpool in a speedboat, goes on an e-mountain bike tour at the foot of the Ben Nevis mountain, tries her hand at playing the bagpipes and learns a Scottish competitive sport: jumping stones over the water. The beautiful island of Skye in the Inner Hebrides with its history-steeped clan families and castles is well worth a visit. The island "Lewis and Harris" belongs to the Outer Hebrides. Here Tamina Kallert learns to weave tweed and feeds sea eagles from the boat.

The Scottish Highlands are huge mountains with a rugged landscape. The characteristics of the Highlands are the many lakes and the inlets that reach far into the country. The fjords and the many valleys with their lochs have existed since the Ice Age. The Scottish highlands are perfect for hiking.

"Isle of Skye" means island of fog. It is located in the north-west of Scotland, belongs to the Inner Hebrides and is famous for its mysterious mountains, wonderful waterfalls and dark and gloomy castles. Unfortunately it is quite full in the summer months.

Lewis and Harris is part of the Outer Hebrides. The northern part is known as Lewis or Isle of Lewis, the southern part as Harris or Isle of Harris: But it is a contiguous island. Harris is rather mountainous and has several elevations over 300 meters. Lewis, on the other hand, is rather flat, only the area to the east of Loch Seaforth has hills. Lewisand Harris is world famous for the Harris Tweed.

Travelers to Scotland should look to the locals who say, if you don't like the weather - wait five minutes, it will change. Rainwear, a warm jacket and sturdy shoes definitely belong in your luggage. The maximum temperatures in the highlands and on the islands rarely reach 20 degrees, even in midsummer. More or less heavy rain is to be expected even then. The water temperatures of the Atlantic do not really invite you to swim. But there are beaches, for example Luskentyre Beach in the southwest of the Hebridean island of Lewis and Harris, which with its powdered sugar sand and turquoise water looks like it is in the Caribbean.
