The Scottish Highlands are a wonderful expanse of culture and history, but with so many things to see and do, where does begin? In today’s blog, we share our recommendations for making the most of your Inverness vacation.
Explore the Great Outdoors
If there’s one thing you simply must do during your trip to the Scottish Highlands, it is take the chance to fully embrace and explore the world-class scenery. From Loch Ness to the Five Sisters of Kintail, there’s nowhere in the world that can be compared with the Scottish Highlands. Take advantage of local attractions such as Boots N’ Paddles and canoe across Loch Ness or dive right into some white-water rafting sledging.
Indulge in some Whiskey Tasting
Treat your palette to a tour of Scotland and indulge in some whiskey tasting. Book a Speyside Whiskey tour to explore some of Scotland’s finest single malts. Sample four of the world’s best-selling whiskeys without a care in the world, with your very own local and extremely knowledgeable chauffeur. A Speyside Whiskey tour is the perfect opportunity to experience true whiskey culture and even pick up a few tips from the people who know the drink best – the locals.
Travel Back in Time
Are you an Outlander fan or a history buff? You’re in luck – not only is Inverness the capital of the Scottish Highlands, but also a major destination with links to some of Scotland’s most prominent historic sites. Visit Culloden Battlefield and explore the grounds of the last ever battle fought on Scottish soil. Learn about the trials and tribulations of the Jacobites, or if that’s not quite up your street, take an Outlander inspired tour to visit the sights that inspired the hit television and books series!
