As the UK’s northernmost city, Inverness enjoys an enviable setting surrounded by some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery whilst having all the benefits of city living on the doorstep. The city has twice been named the happiest place to live in Scotland – what better endorsement could there be for the capital of the Highlands? The rich history of Inverness can be traced throughout the city and surrounding areas, from the vitrified fort at Craig Phadrig, to Inverness Castle now housing Inverness Sheriff Court, to Culloden Battlefield, the site of the bloody Battle of Culloden which ended the Jacobite uprising in 1746. Modern day Inverness retains its historic market town charm while offering all you would expect from a cosmopolitan city. The city centre features a variety of shopping options from small unique stores in the Victorian market to large high street names in the Eastgate Shopping Centre. The thriving culinary scene offers an eclectic mix of restaurants and eateries throughout the city, while the Eden Court Theatre & Cinema leads a flourishing arts scene with a year round programme of events. Away from the city, lovers of the outdoors have an abundance of choice when it comes to destinations. Loch Ness is the most famous of these attractions, hosting hundreds of thousands of visitors every year from all corners of the globe. Whether you are monster hunting or merely seeking to enjoy the tranquil waters and stunning scenery surrounding the loch, there is something for everyone to enjoy, and all within half an hour’s drive of Inverness.
