::: Where We Are
Highland County is in the Allegheny Mountains on the western upland side of the famed Shenandoah Valley. Interstate highways 81 and 64 connect to US Routes 250 and 220 — both of which lead directly to the county seat of Monterey.
::: Directions 
Our local VDOT does an excellent job of clearing ice and snow from our roads!
