Local attractions

Take a stroll to Inverness Castle, currently used as a court house, and St Andrew’s Cathedral, which dominate the River Ness – one of the most beautiful riverside settings in Britain.

Enjoy the circular walk from the castle along the river and through the Ness Islands, where you can watch the anglers casting long lines to leaping Atlantic salmon. You can even buy a daily ticket and try for yourself. Above the city lies Craig Phadrig, once the stronghold of Pictish kings. This offers interesting forest walks and magnificent views of the Moray Firth, home to a diverse range of wildlife, including bottlenose dolphins – these can be seen even from the city.

Explore the art, history and heritage of the Highlands at the museum and art gallery or relax in the tropical gardens at Inverness Botanic Gardens. Why not take in an open-topped bus ride around the city or a cruise down the Caledonian Canal to the world-famous Loch Ness. Visit Fort George, an 18th-century fortified garrison and working barracks, housing the Highlander’s Museum.
