Inverness

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: Aigas Field Centre (in Beauly), Glen Coe (in Glencoe) and Landmark Forest Adventure Park (in Carrbridge). There's much more to do: learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, steep yourself in history at Beauly Priory, browse the exhibits of 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 °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) so you can drive to Durness.
