Flights to the Scottish Highlands Are Incredibly Cheap Right Now

It's time to live out all of your 'Outlander' fantasies.

If you’ve been following the last three seasons of Outlander, you know just how beautiful the Scottish Highlands are. But you don’t have to be a fan of the show to appreciate the natural beauty of this remote area located in the northern reaches of the U.K., especially since flights to the region’s largest city, Inverness, are incredibly cheap right now.

Typically these flights would cost at least $800, but now you can find airfares for as low as $436 to Inverness from cities across the U.S. on British Airways and American Airlines, thanks to a tip from Scott’s Cheap FlightsTravel + Leisure reports.

At publishing, the lowest fares were from Washington D.C. starting at $436 and New York from $493, but there are also deals from the West Coast starting at just $515 from Seattle.

Availability varies depending on where you’re flying from, but generally, these tickets are for trips booked between October and May 2018, so you can book a last-minute fall getaway or start planning your spring break trip for next year.


If you end up booking a ticket, fly in and spend a day or two exploring Inverness before renting a car to see such sites as the Glenfinnan Viaduct, which you might recognize from the Hogwarts Express scenes in Harry Potter, and the Isle of Skye, which is connected to the northwest coast of Scotland by bridge.
