Perfect if you, too, like to be beside the seaside

Up in the Highlands of Scotland sits a quiet little village about an hour north of Inverness. Situated on the shores of the Cromarty Firth and the North Sea, Hilton is one of 3 coastal villages that comprise the Seaboard Villages. Spend the day strolling along the harbor, or hopping between the historic fishing towns, charming the locals with your own attempt at a Scottish brogue. Opt for a Hilton vacation rental on the outskirts of town, and don't be surprised if you wake up with a view of sheep grazing on the hillside.

Dram of scotch optional (but highly recommended)

Timing Scottish travel with pleasant weather is tricky, but summer travelers can spend the day at the beach, or go dolphin-watching -- just don't be surprised if the water is a bit too, um, crisp for a proper swim. Hiking and cycling trails lead around town and into the local forests, but if you're craving a bit of indoor time, a scenic drive to Inverness means plenty of museums, shows, and restaurants. If a drive doesn't appeal, cozy up in your Hilton vacation rental, with a wee nip of whiskey optional (but highly recommended).

When the destination IS the main attraction...

When it comes to the Seaboard Villages, the villages themselves are the main attraction. Take the whole family for a hike or bike ride on the surrounding trails, stop for lunch at the local pub, or walk along the beach and see each village from a new perspective. For travelers looking for more history, head north of the village to the Hilton of Cadboll Chapel. Here you'll find a replica of the Hilton of Cadboll Stone, whose original dates back to 800 AD and is permanently housed in Edinburgh's Museum of Scotland.

At least the rain is a good excuse to buy a cute umbrella?

If you visit Scotland and it doesn't rain, we're pretty sure no one will believe you've actually been. Pack plenty of layers and weatherproof gear, and expect snow if you're visiting in late fall through early spring. Take note, winter travelers, that in December, days are exceptionally short, with only 6-7 hours of daylight. If you're really hoping for some sunshine, plan your visit for July and August, but plan ahead. Days are long and bright, making it a popular time to head to the Scottish coast, so you don't want to be without your Hilton vacation rental.

If Nessie takes a vacation, this is definitely where she goes

While the local weather can make for difficult sightseeing, the rolling hills and stunning Highlands landscape are worth the trouble. The sandy beaches are perfect for taking long walks, and the village's coastal positioning promises excellent dolphin-watching. There are plenty of hiking trails leading up into the forests, where other wildlife can be found, and birders will be right at home, watching the gulls fly overhead. The expansive views of the North Sea and the surrounding lochs will be the true highlight for everyone in your group.
