  • A cute little museum with interesting facts and history on Scotland as well as the area. We especially loved trying to learn the Gaelic phrases as well as learning how to play Hnefatafl (viking chess). Added bonus that it's free, has a wonderful cafe, and an excellent gift shop. Worth the visit and a nice donation at the end.
  • An amazing space with some incredible artists' exhibing there. Katie Dove is there currently and Nora Fok is coming soon!
  • A little small, but does a good job covering the history of the area. Also it's free.
  • Inverness is cold...so was a welcome break to get indoors for free. The history of the Highlands and Jacobite importance to the Union. Also some Modern art....I'd that's what you want to call it.....Rope more like...anyway all their own. Stuffed animals and a chance to get dressed up in a plaid....which us Glasweigens like better. Here are photos of what we saw...Enjoy!

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.
