The self-proclaimed ‘Capital of the Highlands,’ Inverness, is Britain’s northernmost city and is surrounded by some of the world’s most breath-taking mountain and moor land scenery. It is straddling the River Ness, just a stone’s throw from Loch Ness, home of the legendary Monster, and houses some outstanding historic buildings. Inverness offers easy access to a huge choice of outdoor activities and visitor attractions, from lochs and castles to battlefields and nature reserves.
