Greig Street Bridge, Inverness

Emerge from your Inverness hotel and join the throngs enjoying River Ness-side living on a monster-hunting cruise or simply to soak up the centuries of Highland history.

Historic Inverness

Wind your way up Castle Street to the statue of Flora MacDonald that sits in front of the livid pink sandstone walls of Inverness Castle, built on the site of an old fortress in the 19th century. For centuries it has been believed that Macbeth’s King Duncan was murdered in a castle on Auldcastle Road and an archaeological dig has supported these beliefs.

Art and museums in Inverness

Scratch a badger’s belly at the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery as well as learn about the Highlands and its history, from silversmithing to the effects of the industrial revolution. Local and international photographers and artists are also showcased.

Quirky things to do in Inverness

It’s criminal to travel to the heart of Nessie country without going on the hunt. Take a boat from Inverness to Urquhart Castle where you can climb the old Grant Tower with your telephoto lens and keep your fingers crossed for a break in the water. Thousands do it.

Events in Inverness

Book your Inverness hotel in time for the heavyweight pop festival Rockness, which descends on the city every June. The Inverness Summer Festival runs from June to September and incorporates much caber-tossing at the Inverness Highland Games and a variety of theatre and musical events.
