Some highlights for a quick trip to Scotland - E Highlands

Generally more rolling, and less spectacular than the Western Highlands, although they do tend to get better weather and fewer midges, and have some great forested glens. The best of the scenery is mostly in the middle of the Cairngorms, a fair walk from the roads.
