Inverness, ’the city in the Highlands’, is a bustling, modern city with a vibrant culture and great shopping. Located at the top of Scotland’s Great Glen, there is a rich variety of things to see and do in and around Inverness. What’s more, the best of the Highland and Islands landscape is all within easy reach. Loch Ness, with its legendary and infamous monster, is only a short drive away. East of Inverness, the hills gradually sweep down to the edge of the Moray Firth into Nairn, a small, traditional resort noted for its golf and fine beaches.
