"YOU get a kind of clarity when you're away from the white noise of emails, screens and social media," muses Katie Tunn, a Skye based artist who spent almost 40 days and nights alone on an uninhabited Scottish island earlier this year.
1. Highland Wildlife Park, Kingussie
Come and meet Victoria, the UK’s only female polar bear. She and her buddies Walker and Arktos are quite at home in the Highlands and they’ll thrill you with their antics as they dive into their pool or wrestle a hard hat. And they’re not the only animals who originate far from Scotland’s shores. The Highland Wildlife Park also has amur tigers that will leave you spellbound. The park, set in spectacular scenery, has a drive-through reserve and walk-around area. It’s just a great day out for all the family.
