Vacation in Inverness
Location and orientation
Inverness, with a population of almost 50,000, is the northernmost city in Scotland and may bear the name "City". According to her, there is hardly anything left but the Highlands - and that only adds to the charm of the medieval city! It lies at the mouth of the Ness River in the Moray Firth and is the capital of the Highland administrative district. Thanks to its own airport, Inverness is easy to reach from Germany several times a week. However, many holidaymakers combine a stay here with a detour to the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
The famous Loch Ness Marathon takes place at the beginning of October - a real "monster" of a marathon with a varied supporting programme.
Top 3 travel tips
Unfortunately, many of the imposing old buildings in Inverness were demolished in the course of modernisation in the sixties - but some hidden treasures can still be discovered here: for example the beautiful Victorian Market, which hides behind a rather inconspicuous facade. But once you have entered through the doors, a picturesque passage from 1870 awaits you, decorated with beautiful decorations and lanterns. Small boutiques and shops offering antiques, handicrafts and other treasures have settled here. If you feel like a modern shopping trip, you can walk straight on to the Eastgate Shopping Centre, where many famous brands and flagstores await you.2nd The Ness Islands Walk
A walk of a special kind awaits you on the Ness Islands Walk: it starts at Inverness Castle and leads you along the water at Island Bank Road to a picturesque small suspension bridge that takes you to one of the small islands on the Ness. The Ness Islands enchant with many small sights - including a real Loch Ness lake monster made of wood. The walk then takes you to the other side of the river where you pass the old cathedral and university until you reach the Ness Bridge again. A great way to visit the "old" Inverness!3. Searching for Nessie
What would a holiday in a cottage in Inverness be without searching for the most famous sea monster in the world? Loch Ness is located just ten kilometres outside Inverness and is probably the most important excursion destination in the region. The "Nessie capital" is the small town of Drumnadrochit, where not only one, but two information centres around the sea monster await you. You want to keep an eye out for yourself? Then off to the castle ruins of Urquart Castle, from where you have an excellent view over the entire lake. And eyes open! After all, a million is in store as a reward for those who manage to mock Nessie and immortalize her on film or camera!
