As the capital of the Scottish Highlands, Inverness has plenty going for it. Whether you're looking to go monster-hunting in the nearby Loch Ness or delve into the region's intriguing history, there's plenty to keep you occupied.

For an insight into the city's history, make sure you pay a visit to Inverness Castle – a magnificent red sandstone structure overlooking the peaceful waters of the River Ness. The castle sits on the site of an 11th-century defensive structure and offers sprawling views from the North Tower. Other historic sites include the post-Reformation Inverness Cathedral and the Flora Macdonald statue.

Inverness has cemented itself as a bit of a foodie hotspot, and it's easy to see why. Here Michelin-star restaurants rub shoulders with friendly gastropubs and gourmet cafés to serve up a smorgasbord of culinary delights. For modern Scottish fare right by the river, head to Rocpool, which has won rave reviews from critics and customers alike – earning itself a prestigious Michelin star.

Once you're out of the city centre, Inverness becomes a different world. To get back to nature, take a wander through the botanic gardens, explore the Merkinch Local Nature Reserve or go searching for an icon in the inky waters of Loch Ness. You can even go dolphin-spotting in the waters of the Moray Firth.
