Scotland Things to Do: 1,337 reviews and 2,738 photos


Inverness is an excellent area for touring with its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings. It is the start of what is said to be the most beautiful and scenic trips in the whole of Europe. Apparently known for its floral displays, Inverness won the 1996 aware for Best Large town in the Bloom of Britain competition. There are good road, rail and air connections to Inverness.

Inverness Castle was built on a low cliff and on the site of an previous castle in 1835. The cathedral sits on the opposite bank overlooking the River Ness facing the castle. It is believed that the castle played a part in the story of Macbeth. Today the castle takes on a different role and houses the Sherriff’s Court.

Address: Castle Hill, Inverness IV2 3EG
Directions: Take the A835 south east from Ullapool.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
