Places to eat & drink in Inverness.

No one visiting the Highlands should avoid making a trip to this majestic city - once the stronghold of the Picts – which lies at the northern end of Loch Ness. It boasts a gothic-style Victorian cathedral and is the hub of a giant wheel of attractions. These range from Loch Ness and its monster to Urquhart Castle, Culloden Moor - site of the Battle of Culloden - and the Great Glen. A hill called Tomnahurich is reputedly home to the Queen of the Faeries.

Important attractions in the region include Inverness Museum, the Highland Museum of Childhood at Strathpeffer, Newtonmore's Highland Folk Museum and the regimental museum of the Queen's Own Highlanders.

Aberrtarff House – lovingly restored by the National Trust for Scotland -is a fine example of Scots domestic architecture but it is dwarfed by the 22-mile Caledonian Canal, an astonishing feat of engineering that links the east and west coasts via Loch Ness. Equally impressive is the Great Glen itself, which is bisected by a 73-mile, long-distance footpath.

Several islands on the River Ness can be explored while the Iron Age fort at Craig Phadrig and the burial chambers of Clava are key places of historical importance.
