It’s not like other cities! It’s not big, it’s not congested, it’s not dirty, crime rate is very low and the quality of life is high.
It is an oasis in the Highlands of Scotland, surrounded by hills and heather moors, it is clean, it is friendly, it’s easy to get to by rail, road and air, it has history and it has culture. If you haven’t already guessed which city I am referring to, of course it has to be the city of Inverness, jewel of the Highlands.
Inverness is a lovely place to visit, it has some unique features and a fascinating history and of course, you have heard about Loch Ness, well yes, it is only eight miles or so from the city centre. Amazing to think such an iconic loch being so close! And virtually everyone who visits Inverness will, at some point, take a trip to Loch Ness and vice versa. It is easy, if you are fit enough, to just hire a bike and cycle out to Dores at the northern end of the Loch, or hire a car and do a circuit, it’s an easy day out. If you want to avoid driving on the single track roads and be taken, there are plenty of tours from Inverness. Hikers can now walk the entire length of the loch on either side as there are now official trails down both the north and south side, with campsites as well, for overnighting.
Night life and shopping is good in Inverness, so whatever your preference, town or country, you will find it here, and the best place to see all about it, is on the website – visitlochness.com.
Be seeing you !
