About Inverness

Inverness is a city located in the Scottish Highlands and is the administrative centre of the Highland council area. The name means "Mouth of the River Ness" and the city lies where the River Ness, which flows from the nearby Loch Ness, enters the Moray Firth. Culloden Moor lies nearby, and was the site of the Battle of Culloden in 1746, which ended the Jacobite Rising of 1745–1746. The city centre lies on the east bank of the River Ness and is linked to the opposite bank by three road bridges: Ness Bridge, Friars Bridge and the Black (or Waterloo) Bridge. There is also a footbridge, the Greig Street Bridge, which connects to the two banks.

Inverness has good transport links. There is a direct link to the Black Isle across the Moray Firth by the Kessock Bridge and the city's railway station provides passengers with links to many towns and cities across Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom including Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Aberdeen and Thurso. Inverness also has an airport, located about 10 miles from the city, and provides scheduled flights to London, Manchester, Belfast and to many other cities across the UK.

About Edinburgh

The city of Edinburgh in Scotland has a rich history which has resulted in the city having many historic buildings. Examples include Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate. Edinburgh also has an international reputation as a centre of learning particularly in medicine, science and engineering. The University of Edinburgh, which was founded in 1583, was recently placed 17th in the QS World University Rankings 2013, and is one of four universities in the city.

The city is also famous for the Edinburgh International Festival, which, since its inception in 1947, has grown – largely as a result of the "Fringe" and other associated events – into the biggest annual international arts festival in the world. The Festival is usually held over three weeks from the middle of August and brings top class performers of music (especially classical music), theatre, opera and dance from around the world to perform. The festival also hosts a series of visual art exhibitions, talks and workshops. However, the main festival has been overtaken in size and popularity by the Edinburgh Fringe which initially began as a range of alternative acts alongside the 'official' Festival and has progressed to become the largest performing arts festival in th world.
