Scotland's northernmost city enjoys a stunning setting overlooked by Inverness Castle on the banks of the River Ness. It's also just a short trip away from Loch Ness - where you can enjoy a scenic cruise - or a dolphin-watching trip on the Moray Firth. Or if you fancy something a little more energetic, there's always walking or cycling in the nearby Cairngorms National Park. 

During the summer, Inverness can be all things, especially a thoroughly traditional affair. With events like the Inverness Highland Games and the Inverness Tattoo, cultural experiences are to the fore throughout the summer months.

The wealth of riverside restaurants serving world famous Highland ingredients like venison and salmon offer the ideal launch pad for a night experiencing all the music, pubs, bars and nightclubs that Inverness has to offer.
