Inverness is the battle ravaged ‘capital of the the Highlands’. In the 6th century it was a trading port with Europe, in the middle ages its castle was burnt down by Robert the Bruce, and in the 19th century it became famous for producing rope, wool, and ships. But now it’s a truly wonderful city to explore. There’s a gorgeous pink castle, relaxing parks, and splendid highland restaurants. What’s more is you can take a tour from here and be whisked to the wildest parts of Scotland in under an hour.
All Inverness tours depart from Inverness Bus Station, stance number 7, Margaret Street, Inverness, IV1 1LT.
