Inverness dawn...

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands, became Scotland's fifth city in celebration of the start of the Third Millennium. It lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth, and has been a natural focus for lines of communication to and through the Highlands for most of the last two thousand years. Today's Inverness is a diverse and bustling city with a compact and attractive centre. The River Ness still provides a key focus.

Inverness means "Mouth of the River Ness", and is generally considered to be the Gateway to the Highlands. Now a large and growing metropolis, albeit a very attractive metropolis, and it has a busy airport which is served by Loganair, Easyjet, Ryanair and Highland Airways, Aer Aran and BMI. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe and is the centre of commerce and industry for the Scottish Highlands.

Located on the the Moray firth with the broad and sparkling River Ness flowing through the city, Inverness has the best of Highland City life and access to some of the most beautiful mountains and glens, all within easy reach.
