Most people head to the Highlands in the summer months in search of sun, fun and outdoor adventure. But with its own micro-climate, Inverness is surprisingly dry and sunny throughout the year (well, compared to the rest of Scotland). Which is why autumn in Scotland is when festivals in Inverness really take off. With the Blas Festival and Highland Military Tattoo in September, the Royal National Mod in October, and the Civic Bonfire and Fireworks Display and Christmas Lights Switch On in November, there is no better time for family fun than autumn in Scotland.

With a milder, more forgiving sun beating down on the many lochs and rivers throughout the Highlands, fishing really comes to life in the autumn months. And while we can’t guarantee you will catch a Highland monster, we can guarantee that wading through the Highlands on a guided fishing tour will get you hooked on fishing in the Highlands faster than you can blink.
