Inverness, UK - Scottish Highlands, Home of Lovat House
Inverness is known as the Highland Capital. With its 47,000 inhabitants, it’s the northernmost city in the UK and an ideal launching point for touring the Northern and Central Highlands. Fortunately, it is also a pleasant city to wander and explore. Bisected by the River Ness flowing from Loch Ness to the south, the city’s numerous church spires dot the riverbank. The city’s center has many shops, restaurants, and pubs along with a Victorian era and a modern shopping mall, either of which prove useful in the event of an unexpected shower. Local residents enjoy the Ness Islands as a tranquil park in the midst of the bustling town.
Traditional music lovers will appreciate the scene in Inverness that includes nightly sessions at the central Hootananny pub. History buffs will enjoy a reflective walk at the Culloden battlefield where one of Scotland’s most important and tragic conflicts took place. The Inverness Museum and Art Gallery will bring anyone up to speed on the region’s natural history along with showcasing the rich cultural background of the Highlands.
Inverness has train connections to the Thurso and Wick in the North; Kyle of Localsh in the West; Aberdeen to the East; and Stirling, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London to the South. Inverness has public buses in many directions. Private tour buses leave from central Inverness for the Isle of Skye, the Whisky Trail, Loch Ness, and other destinations.
