The Scottish Highlands

A rugged fairy tale landscape of still golden lochs, white sandy beaches, mist shrouded mountains and ancient forests, the Scottish Highlands is one of Europe's least sparsely populated regions, as well as one of its most beautiful. You'll find the UK's highest mountain, Ben Nevis and its deepest lake, Loch Morar, as well as whisky distilleries galore due to the abundant supply of barley, peat and fresh water. On top of its sparkling array of natural wonders, the Highlands has a rich history and heritage; visit ancient settlements and bloody battle-grounds, castles and brooding brochs.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
