Fly to Inverness

Monstrously enjoyable

Set on the leafy banks of the fast-flowing River Ness and close by the shores of the Moray Firth, Inverness commands routes in all directions – perfect for Highland sightseeing.

Mind you, you don’t have to go far to thoroughly enjoy yourself; Inverness has a choice of quality restaurants, cafes and bars, a fine theatre at Eden Court, relaxing walks that lead you through the little chain of islands on the river, or easy strolls on the towpaths of the remarkable feat of engineering that is the Caledonian Canal. Nearby is the atmospheric moorland battlefield of Culloden, where Bonnie Prince Charlie’s clansmen met disaster in 1746 - the fascinating Visitor Centre tells all.

This compact, thriving city...

... has long been the gateway to picture-postcard scenery such as the wide-open spaces north beyond the elegant Kessock Bridge, towards Black Isle; or south to the Cairngorm National Park’s majestic mountains, wildlife and outdoor activities galore. Head east and you’ll soon come to Nairn, perhaps the ultimate Highland seaside town, popular since Victorian days, complete with beautiful beach and two championship 18-hole golf courses.

Journey west and you may see the world’s most famous, most elusive monster. On the banks of Loch Ness, maybe at ruined Castle Urquhart Castle, devote a moment or more to trying to spot Nessie … you never know. The Loch Ness 360o Trail can take you along 80 miles of bewitching lochside scenery.

Travel any time of year. In autumn, blazing colours set the Highlands aglow; winter’s snows give the mountains stunning fresh perspectives.
