Ever wondered where the largest collection of brawny Scottish men in plaid skirts playing the bagpipes in North Carolina is? Yea, me either but I'll let you know anyway :) You can find these gentlemen at Grandfather Mountain for the highland games that take place every year in the mountain national park. Besides being the highest peak in the eastern United States, Grandfather Mountain offers amazing beauty for those scenery lovers, a mile high swinging bridge for your adventurous side, and nature preserves for those animal lovers among us. There are several hikes that vary in difficulty that allows a great hiking experience for everyone. And for you conservationists out there, the park is a sanctuary that revolves around the conservation and preservation of our great forests. But better than all of this is the 360 panoramic view that you get of the Appalachian region. IT IS AMAZING AND IT WILL LEAVE YOU BREATHLESS. If you are ever in this area for just a day, this has to be your stop. It will be something that is never forgotten.
