Inverness

— 4 nights

Gateway to the Highlands

Inverness, often described as the Gateway to the Highlands, is a thriving commercial and industrial center.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Inverness: Landmark Forest Adventure Park (in Carrbridge), Glen Coe (in Glencoe) and Aigas Field Centre (in Beauly). There's much more to do: learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, steep yourself in history at Beauly Priory, get a taste of the local shopping with Inspirations, and deepen your knowledge of military history at Fort George.

Plan my trip to Inverness with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Perth, Australia to Inverness is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll gain 8 hours traveling from Perth to Inverness due to the time zone difference. In July, daytime highs in Inverness are 22°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) so you can drive to Durness.

A land packed with thousands of years of history, Scotland is home to numerous thriving cities and a vibrant population proud of its distinct culture, heritage, and art. The Scottish people are fond of saying "Good things come in small packages," and nowhere is that more true than in their compact homeland. Despite its relatively small size, the country is crammed full of attractions, not the least of which are numerous world-famous golf courses and whiskey distilleries. Though the sun may not always shine here, Scotland is a stunning country renowned for its dramatic scenery of mountains, valleys, hills, green fields, and rugged coastlines, guaranteeing a diverse holiday. While most tourists restrict their itinerary to the historic Highlands, where they search for the mysterious Loch Ness monster, you can also explore the Lowlands’ outstanding natural wonders and flourishing cultural scene.
