Inverness is a city that manages to blend its history and culture seamlessly with its new and vibrant city centre. Situated on the banks of the River Ness, this scenic city is the ideal base if you wish to strike out into the surrounding Highland countryside. Relax in a riverside cafe or restaurant, or scour the shops which are a mix of independent and brand retail outlets. Hop on a cruise down the Caledonian Canal to Loch Ness, and along with trying to find Nessie, grab your binoculars and try to find bottle-nosed dolphins from Chanonry Point. Stride out into heather-covered Highlands either on foot or by bike, and enjoy all the wondrous scenery this region has to offer. Discover this area at your own pace from one of our Inverness cottages.
