Town Information

Inverness is the city known as The Capital of the Scottish Highlands. Inverness is a diverse and bustling city with an attractive centre. The River Ness still provides a key focus with attractions like Inverness Castle, Eden Court Theatre and Ness Islands, a beautiful natural park. The castle, built from red sandstone, sits on a cliff overlooking the river, and the grounds and north tower are open to the public. The Old Town features Inverness Cathedral, 18th-century Old High Church and an indoor Victorian Market selling food, clothing and crafts. Inverness Museum and Art Gallery traces local and Highland history. Inverness is an important centre for bagpipe players and lovers, since every September the city hosts the Northern Meeting. Another major event is the annual Inverness Highland Games in July. Inverness has become the northern end of the 73-mile Great Glen Way long distance footpath. The city is also the starting and finishing point for the popular North Coast 500 circular driving tour. From the Bronze Age Clava Cairns to Culloden Battlefield, you can connect with history at many places in and around the city. Visit Nairn, a pretty Victorian seaside resort, or book a tour at one of the nearby historic distilleries and discover the secrets of the whisky-making process. A trip to Inverness would not be complete without a visit to Loch Ness. You can take a loch cruise and go Nessie-spotting or admire Urquhart Castle.
