This is an online guide book for visitors and tourists to Inverness. Most tourists
travelling to the Highlands will spend some time in Inverness or use it as a base
from which to take day trips and tours around the Highlands.
Inverness itself offers much for the visitor, which isn’t immediately obvious. It’s
a centre of Highland history and as such, many of its historic buildings have been
destroyed over the centuries in power struggles and battle.
Some time spent understanding Inverness enhances the experience of onward tourist
travel to the Highlands. Discover the geology behind the mysterious mountains, the
origins and conflicts of the clans system, the Gaelic language, and folklore. Listen
to the Highland folk music; eat versions of the old foods. Inverness has an importance
far beyond its boundaries with people travelling hundreds of miles from remote Highland
locations to use its services.
