Scotland’s northernmost city and the self-proclaimed ‘Capital of the Highlands’, Inverness is located on the Moray Firth and is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. Inverness is often visited by daytrippers in search of that monster, but thanks to a lively cafe and restaurant culture, and a host of excellent outdoor activities on its doorstep, Inverness city centre is fast becoming a destination in its own right. Anyone looking for places to stay in Inverness need look no further than Jurys Inn Inverness, which has stylish, contemporary rooms and an ideal location near both Loch Ness and Inverness Airport.
Get your bearings
Inverness city centre is pleasingly compact, so it’s easy to explore on foot. And there’s no better introduction to the city than a stroll around Inverness Cathedral, a beautiful pink sandstone structure overlooking the river Ness. Walk down towards Queensgate to pick up some easy-to-pack gifts from the independent boutiques at the popular indoor Victorian Market.
After all that walking, take a break to admire local artworks at the contemporary Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. A morning here will double as a history lesson, with a permanent exhibition tracing local and Highland lore, as well as an ever-changing roster of craft and paintings by Inverness artists on show in the Community Gallery.
While you’re there
Looking to get outside the city centre? Take bus number 5 from the stop on King Duncans Road, located outside Jurys Inn Inverness, to the Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobite Rising battle was fought. For a close-up look at the country’s medieval defences, visit Fort George, an imposing 18th-century military fortress and now fully-functioning army barracks that overlooks the Moray Firth.
