Visit Inverness, Loch Ness and the Highlands of Scotland

 

Things to do

Some of the world's top 100 golf courses. We particularly recommend Strathpeffer, Brora, Boat of Garten and Muir of Ord, plus the renowned Royal Dornoch links course

Sensational walking and trekking with the famous Lairig Ghru in the Cairngorms acting almost as a magnet - an unrivalled trek through a stunning mountain cleft. And The Great Glen Way which runs 73 miles from Fort William to Inverness

Rothiemurchus Estate at Aviemore and its incredible range of safe and quality controlled outdoor activities from fly fishing tuition to safaris and great 4 x 4 driving. Even mini highland games. Exhilarating adventure opportunities

Great watersports at nearby Loch Morlich and Loch Insh. Wonderful horseback trails, kayaking down the River Spey with a picnic on the way. Rock climbing, ice  climbing, mountain biking, ranger led trail hiking.

Climb over 60 neighbouring Munros including The Cairngroms, the Fannichs, Ben Wyvis, Ben Dearg group and An Teallach. The mountains of Torridon and Glen Affric are also within easy reach

Salmon and sea trout fishing on the Spey or in stocked lochs on the nearby estates

Husky dog sledding with or without snow. Clay pigeon shooting, gliding. Local swimming and go karting. Family fun and so much more. No better enjoyed too than in the neighbouring Cairngorms National Park region, well worth a visit

Things to see and visit

Inverness is a remarkably accessible destination at all times of the year, not to mention the wonderful journeys through beautiful Scottish scenery that can be enjoyed whether by car, train or coach, in getting here. And at journey's end, a very special Highland hotel

Inverness is the largest town in the Highlands of Scotland, its capital, and the busy and prosperous hub of the region. All main routes through the Highlands pass through here at some point, so it's a hard place to avoid! The town's position at the head of the Great Glen and on the shores of the Moray Firth have made it a firm favourite with tourists, who flock here in their legions during the summer months to look for the evasive Loch Ness Monster. Though Inverness has little in the way of major sights, it's a pleasant place to base yourself as you explore the other, more visible attractions on offer in the surrounding area, including the resident population of dolphins in the Moray Firth. The town, though, is not without its own appeal, particularly the leafy banks of the River Ness, which runs through its heart, linking Loch Ness with the Moray Firth 

Discover the very best Scotland has to offer - Highland scenery, a beautiful coastline and attractive towns and villages. Visit the eight distilleries and cooperage on the Malt Whisky Trail, the Cashmere Visitor Centre, craft centres, castles & gardens and Baxters of Speyside. Play on championship golf courses, fish, sail, go dolphin watching or follow the Speyside Way footpath from the coast to the shadow of the Grampian Highlands

Inverness is an exceptional place where you will find the warmest of welcomes - a busy, modern, vibrant city with a real buzz. Looking for the perfect destination for short breaks and holidays in the Highlands? – look no further

Discover Culloden, Loch Ness and the monster Nessie, fantastic scenery and Highland glens, lochs and mountains. Enjoy Loch Ness cruises and tours, dolphin spotting trips, visitor attractions, restaurants and shops. Visit the beautiful west coast, the Cairngorm National Park, the Isle of Skye, Orkney and Royal Deeside. Explore castles, Stone Age ruins, Pictish and Whisky trails, standing stones and circles, distilleries, wild life, gardens, forests and quiet beaches
