Save money on your stay by seeking out independent guest houses and small B&Bs. You won’t need to spend a penny to enjoy the region’s natural beauty, from its hills, lochs and walking trails to the city’s own Ness Islands, which connect to the riverbank by footbridges.

There are a few galleries in the town, like the elegant Browns Gallery which showcases a curated collection by established and contemporary Scottish artists – and it’s perfectly located next to Inverness Castle.

Visiting in the summertime? Don’t miss the Inverness Highland Games to witness the tossing of the caber, taste some local whiskies and go all-in at the evening ceilidh.
