The area and getting around
Where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth, we find Inverness, the capital of the Highlands. This city features several sites with important information about local history, museums, a fantastic Victorian Market, a 19th-century cathedral and the Old High Church. This compact city shares the beauty with all the wonders of the Highlands, including historical treasures like the Clava Cairns and natural splendours around Loch Ness.Travel in Inverness
Wandering around the city centre is the best way to know every corner and discover unique shops and lovely cafes. Walking is the easiest way to access the Inverness Castle and St Andrew’s Cathedral. A nice stroll along the River Ness is a pleasant activity to enjoy with the family and crossing the suspension bridge will take you to the Ness Islands, a paradise of calm and quietness. Although the city can be reached by plane, car and public services, we also recommend you to try a more active way of doing so by getting there by boat via the Caledonian Canal, cycle from Fort William along the Great Glen Mountain Bike Trail or walk the Great Glen Way. Sound appealing?
