One of Scotlands largest castles and perfectly situated on the slopes of Loch ness. A great place to learn about the history surrounding the loch and also appreciate the breath-taking views.

The closest distillery to Inverness and only a short 20minute drive from my property. A small distillery compared to some of the larger names in Speyside but this gives it a much more intimate and authentic feel. Good tours with tastings included and lovely easy drinking whiskey even for those not particularly keen on the taste.

A nearby light walk/hike that offers stunning views over Inverness and the Beauly firth. It is only a short 5-10minute drive from my property with parking at the trail entrance. Then a short half an hour walk through the woods with steady incline you will reach the top of the hill where it is believed once stood an iron age fort.

One of the largest and most impressive artillery fortifications in Britain. Built in the 18th Century following the battle of Culloden. A great place to learn more about the military history of the area and take in the amazing views from the ramparts out across the Moray firth.

Great fine dining restaurant in the heart of the city just across from the castle. All the food is great but make sure you save enough room for dessert as the famous 'Malteser crepes' are an absolute must!

Fantastic whiskey and cocktail bar in an intimate and cosy venue above Prime the restaurant. Great for a pre-theatre drink as only a few minutes walk from Eden court or just as a treat. It can be expensive compared to other places but the quality of the drinks makes up for this. Lovely views up to the castle across the river as well.

One of the best fine dining restaurants in Inverness. Delicious food in a bustling atmosphere. It books up very quickly so be sure to make a reservation as far in advance as possible if you want a special dinner during your stay. The quality of the food does come with a bigger price tag though and is one of the more expensive eateries in Inverness.
