Inverness is a scenic city, and the honorary capital of the Scottish Highlands. The name originates from the Gaelic Inbhir Nis, meaning “mouth of the River Ness”. One of Europe’s fastest growing cities, with a quarter of Highland citizens calling Inverness home, and has the highest quality of life of any Scottish city, also ranking fifth out of all British cities.
Inverness is one of the settings in Shakespeare’s iconic and classic play Macbeth, where the titular character held a castle in the city. Inverness is also the setting for the hugely popular Outlander novel series, and its television counterpart.
An important centre for bagpipe players and lovers alike, Inverness hosts the Northern Meeting every September – known for the best solo bagpiping competition. Home to Loch Ness, Inverness is perfect for conducting your own search for Nessie – the Loch Ness Monster. There are also a number of distilleries – Tomatin and Glen Ord – so if whisky is your poison, this could be your flawless trip. You can also visit the beautiful Bottlenose dolphins, up at Chanonry Point.
