Book cheap flights to Inverness

On the banks of the River Ness in the heart of the Highlands you’ll find Inverness, a small yet thriving city. Surrounded by sweeping glens, mountains and a rugged coastline, Inverness is your gateway to an adventure in the Scottish wilderness.

Fly from London to Inverness with British Airways and you can be spotting dolphins in the Moray Firth in just over an hour and a half – or searching for elusive sea monsters in Loch Ness down the road. Founded in the 12th century, Inverness is steeped in history, with Culloden Moor – the site of the Jacobite rising of 1745 – nearby, and the city’s imposing castle standing proud upon the hill. You're spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor pursuits, from mountaineering and climbing during the summer to skiing at Aviemore in the winter months. After a day soaking in the area’s natural beauty and fresh air, head south of Inverness to Speyside, which has the largest concentration of whisky distilleries in Scotland.
