The name Inverness comes from the Gaelic "Inbhir Nis´" meaning "Mouth of the River Ness". The capital of Scotland's Highlands region, Inverness is situated at the head of the Great Glen on the shores of the Moray Firth.
Grand and historic, Inverness offers a glorious gateway to the highlands with excellent road, rail and air connections, providing a convenient location for touring. An ideal location for visiting Cawdor Castle, the ground of the Battle of Culloden (where Bonnie Prince Charlie made his last stand), Loch Ness and Fort George which are all within an easy drive of each other.
Inverness Castle is found on the cliff edge of the River Ness. It is rumoured that the site's original eleventh century castle, was in fact featured in William Shakespeare's Macbeth. A piper can be heard here on a summer's evening playing a haunting melody to add to the already charged atmosphere.

About the Highlands
Home of amongst others, the Games, the Fling and its Feast, the Highlands are where tourists flock to observe the perpetuation of scottish traditions which continue to be the backbone of highland culture. The Highlands offer an exciting outdoor adventure challenge of the highest of mountains, the deepest of lochs and the most spectacular scenery you have ever seen.
Home to Ben Nevis and the cleanest and freshest of air and water, the Highlands offer a rugged, healthy and varied choice of landscape and experience. Places to visit while touring the Highlands include the sports and holiday developed town of Aviemore. If active mountain experiences are on the top of your list for things to do, why not check out Fort William.

Head furthest north to the wilderness region of Caithness for its wildlife value and peat landscape. Here you will enjoy the spectacular cliff top views as well as participating in a spot of dolphin, shark and whale watching.
The best way to enjoy the length and breadth of the Highlands is to drive. Taking the A82 out of Inverness towards Fort Augustus is considered to be one of the most beautiful sites in the world. So breathtaking are these views that this highway generally gets clogged up with slow moving traffic distracted by the views! There are plenty of places to pull in off the road to allow you to properly acquaint yourself with the scenery. Locals are said to take these views for granted while the newcomer will need time to adjust to the splendour and majesty of the Inverness-shire countryside. The A82 runs alongside Loch Ness so expect to want to spend some time enjoying that just as soon as you arrive at Inverness Airport!
