Discover Inverness, the 'Gateway to the Highlands'

5 July 2021

Straddling the mighty River Ness and rubbing shoulders with world-famous Loch Ness, the vibrant Scottish city of Inverness has a whole lot to offer. Granted, it's a bit of a gem in its own right - few could argue against the allure of the city's handsome sandstone castle, thriving culinary scene, and warm and welcoming locals - but it's the location of Inverness that really shines.

The perfect jumping-off point for soaking up wild and wonderful Scottish scenery, visit Inverness and you'll find the splendours of the Highlands waiting right on your doorstep. Find yourself immersed in a scenic tapestry of rural beauty; glens carved over centuries by ancient glaciers, glistening lochs that stretch as far as the eye can see, rugged beaches, soaring mountains and dense, evergreen forests. And, dotted amidst these cinematic landscapes, there's striking castle ruins, world-class railways, and picture-postcard villages aplenty, making this corner of the UK a must-visit for anyone wanting a dose of natural beauty blended with rich cultural heritage.
