Inverness is the most northerly city in Scotland and the “gateway” to the Highlands, the rugged and impressive area of Scotland that is recognised around the world.
The Highlands are home to ‘The Malt Whisky Trail’, featuring some of the most famous distilleries in the world including Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. The Loch Ness monster lives nearby too, and the region is rich with castles and unique Scottish wildlife. Travel on the Harry Potter steam train to the west highlands for a night in a haunted castle, or perhaps a helicopter flight to the Isle of Skye flying over Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. Test your skills fishing in some of the world’s most famous rivers, the River Tay or the River Spey. Seek an adrenaline rush white water rafting or high ropes walking in a Caledonian forest.
