The city of Inverness is Located in the Scottish Highlands and boasts many historic buildings, especially in the Old Town, which can be taken in whilst browsing in the city's shops from the Victorian Market to the new Eastgate Centre. The city is ideal to explore whilst walking. Take a stroll to Inverness Castle, which is currently being used as a courthouse, and to St Andrew's Cathedral which dominate the beautiful riverside setting along the River Ness. Alternatively take the circular walk along the river and through Ness Islands where you can observe anglers casting lines in their attempt to catch leaping Atlantic salmon. Day tickets can be purchased to try this for yourself. Above the city lies Craig Phadrig, once the stronghold of Pictish Kings, which offers interesting forest walks and magnificent views of the Moray Firth, home to a diverse range of wildlife including bottlenose dolphins which can even be seen from the city. To the south west, and just 15 minutes from the city centre lies Loch Ness, where it's compulsory to keep an eye out for our most famous resident – Nessie – but of course there’s much more to see and do than monster spotting.
