Inverness Tours with Great British Trips
Inverness, the attractive capital of the Highlands and Scotland's millennium city, makes an ideal base for exploring the area. The city is thought to date back to the 6th century as the Pictish capital and a trading centre for fish, wool and furs. Today it is dominated by the pink sandstone castle which has been built and restored over the centuries due to various battles over the years which left the castle in need of repair. The city is largely modern looking with plenty of shops, places to eat and drink, and plenty of peaceful areas close to the centre for relaxing. Inverness also hosts the largest Highland Games. Surrounding the city is some awesome countryside with hillsides and lochs in plentiful supply and dolphins cruises available in the nearby Moray Firth. Just south of Inverness is the world famous Loch Ness and of course the Loch Ness monster lurking somewhere within!
