Thanks to improved travel connections into the capital of the Highlands, Inverness has become the perfect base for many travellers visiting Scotland to explore the world-famous Scottish Highlands. With daily flights from London, Amsterdam, Dublin, Belfast, and many more destinations, the many different tours from Inverness available are the perfect way to explore all the Scottish Highlands has to offer.
Our friends at Rabbie’s Trail Burners share with us what they love about Inverness and Loch Ness!
Fuelling your sense of adventure
Choosing Inverness is the smart option for people who want to avoid the stress and traffic of big cities, but still want to be within easy reach of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, such us Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, or the Speyside Distilleries.
Not only does Inverness offer a good selection of flights, accommodation, shopping, and leisure activities, you can also enjoy a wide array of trips from Inverness, with frequent guided tour departures to all the iconic landmarks around the area.
Taking tours from Inverness up a gear
As travel connections to the Highland capital improves, more tour options are becoming available in Inverness. Rabbie’s Small Group Tours, the well-known Scottish tour operator established in 1993, even started operating Highland tours from Inverness straight from Inverness Bus Station in April.
With a selection of seven tours: six one-day tours to Scottish highlights such as Loch Ness or Skye, and one 3-day tour to Orkney, Rabbie’s has made it easier for more people visiting the Scottish Highlands to see even more of the breath-taking Highland. And while they have only recently started their tours in Inverness, they’re already delighted with the results, as the feedback from customers about the experience of travelling from Inverness is great.
Taking the road less travelled
Don’t let Inverness’ central location fool you. While Inverness may be a convenient departure base to visit the Scottish Highlands, it is also a remarkably enchanting city steeped in fascinating history and full of wonderful things to do. Allow yourself time to enjoy the history, nature and traditions that this relatively ‘wee’ city has to offer. Visit the Highland Archive Centre, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, stroll through the banks of Ness River and the Caledonian Canal, and if you are lucky enough to be in Inverness in August, you can enjoy watching the local Highland Games.
With so much to see and even more to do in the Scottish Highlands, why not make the most of your Highland holiday with one of the incredible tours from Inverness.
