The City of Salford lies within the metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester in the north west of England and lies in a meander of the River Irwell which forms part of its boundary with the City of Manchester to the east. Salford grew to become a major factory during the 18th and 19th centuries specialising on cotton and silk spinning in the local mills which attracted many families which in turn enhanced the economy of the city. Additionally, Salford Docks was an important dock on the Manchester Ship Canal, which connected Manchester to the Mersey Estuary.
The area that was home to Salford Docks fell into disrepair following the demise of the docks. However, following a period of regeneration the area, now known as Salford Quays, is home to many hotels, apartments, museums, bars and restaurants. Some of the more well known inhabitants of Salford Quays are the MediaCityUK, home of the BBC and The Lowry Centre which is a gallery and theatre centre. Its name taken from the prominent early 20th century artist L.S. Lowry, who lived and worked in Salford and its surrounding areas for more than 40 years.
Notable people from Salford include Emmeline Pankhurst who was one of the founders of the suffragette movement.
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.
