Consnothing special at all in itself

Lukewarm intro Inverness is a really a bit of a dump. No, honestly. For a place whose known history goes more than a millenium back and which is a county town and a centre of pretty much everything for a vast area of exceptional beauty and heritage (aka the Scottish Highlands), this "city"...

“A tour around Loch Ness”

published 05/12/2000

ProBeautiful scenery

ConsHotel left a bit to be desired

Loch Ness is arguably the best known of the Scottish lochs, due to the lady who lives there, known as Nessie to her friends! Whether you choose to believe in the existence of the Loch Ness Monster or not is up to you but the beauty of the loch and the surrounding area are undeniable. Loch Ness...

“Hunting the Monster”

published 26/05/2001

ProAdventure and Scenery

ConsNo night clubs (?!)

My best ever holiday was when I was a mere eight years old, life was easy then and much more innocent! We were living in the north of Scotland at the time, my father was an RAF pilot and had just been posted to a base there so the whole environment was new and waiting to be explored. The holiday...

Inverness may seem like a slightly odd place for a honeymoon, but for my husband Dave (tekk) and I it was pretty amazing. We were more or less on a holiday already – after having lived in Kent for quite some time (well, 23 years in my husband’s case) we decided to come and stay in...

One of the fastest growing towns in Europe, Inverness is regarded as being the 'Capital of the Highlands'. For Scottish people Inverness makes a welcome change from the big cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. For other visitors Inverness makes an excellent base from which to explore the 'real'...

“This is lovely”

published 04/11/2000

ProBest of both worlds

ConsMabey the weather in the winter

Having just returned from visiting this wee town for a weekend which was over all to soon, I have to advise anyone who loves Scotland to pay this a visit. It has everything you could want in a small town with plenty of shops, pubs, resturants. The surrounding area has some of the most spectacular...

ProExcellent base for the Highlands. History abounds.

ConsUnreliable weather

Inverness,the capital of the Scottish Highlands,is a comparatively small city but has considerable charm and interest for the visitor. It has numerous historical links to the rather turbulent history of the Highlands and has a number of interesting historical buildings such as Inverness Castle...

ProCentral location to visit other places

ConsDon't forget the insect repellant.

Glencoe in the Highlands, has got to be the place to go to if you want a beautiful destination that is in a central location and has it's own story to tell. We were in our touring caravan at Invercoe Caravan Park and were delighted with the mystery and majesty of The Three Sisters mountain range...
