Gateway to the Highlands

Inverness, often described as the Gateway to the Highlands, is a thriving commercial and industrial center. One of the fastest-growing cities in Europe, Inverness is home to an expanding high-tech community. During the height of the tourist season, the city and the surrounding area overflow with visitors intent on finding the mysterious monster that is supposed to be hiding in the murky waters of nearby Loch Ness. Numerous cruise options are offered on the loch. Visitors who prefer to stay on dry land can search for shops instead of monsters by strolling along the River Ness, which runs through the heart of the city. Put Inverness at the heart of your travel plans by using our United Kingdom (UK) travel itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Inverness

You’ll easily find bed and breakfasts and guesthouses convenient to the center of town in Inverness, from the cozy to more large-scale places, often with a view down to the River Ness, which later joins Loch Ness. For more affordable accommodation, look for a few budget hostels, as well as camping and caravan sites. If you've got a car, consider staying just outside the city in a quiet village, where you can explore the city by day and nature by evening. Since this is the largest city in the Highlands, you'll probably be able to find something last minute, but if you have a specific type of accommodtion in mind, it's a good idea to book in advance.
