The main tourist season is yet to come. This means we have plenty of cheap holidays on offer and our attractions are open!
Plus, March is a great time of year to enjoy our road trips or ready planned Scotland itineraries.

The trees and plants are starting to wake up after winter, and the days are beginning to feel warmer. March is a great time to visit Inverness and Loch Ness to see life bloom. There is plenty of activities to get involved with throughout spring in the Highlands.
When the spring sunshine glistens on Loch Ness, and the gentle waves lap at the shore, it can feel like you are in a different world. If it’s a little time out you are after, then visiting Loch Ness is going to be perfect for you.
There are plenty of isolated spots around the loch. Follow the Loch Ness 360° trail to find your new special place. If you are looking for guided tours, companies like WOW Scotland Tours provide excellent trips to our beauty spots.
Our wildlife is very special to us. Dolphins and otters are just two of the species to keep an eye out for if you follow our four-day adventure itinerary. Some say that otters are responsible for many of the Loch Ness Monster sightings – what do you think?
If you want to increase your chances of spotting a dolphin, then Dolphin Spirit Inverness specialises in looking for them on comfortable cruises around the Inner Moray Firth. You will be joined by an experienced guide who will make sure you don’t miss a thing.
If you are exploring the loch and countryside, then Cameron’s Tea Room can provide a welcome break. It offers a great range of tasty meals, home-cooked baking and warm and cold drinks. There’s also a good chance you might see some Highland cows up close and personal!
Looking to taste some whisky on your trip? Then a visit to Glen Ord distillery might be on the cards. See how the drink is made, then stop for a tipple and some shopping afterwards. And remember, our pubs, restaurants and hotels all have great whisky selections from around the area under one roof.
Many people visit Inverness for a relaxing and calm holiday. There are few things calmer than falling asleep on the water, which is something you can do on the Highland Lassie, a converted boat on a canal. Or perhaps you would rather indulge in luxury in Ness Walk, a five-star hotel in the city centre? Whatever you choose, Inverness is the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
Early spring is a great time to choose to visit the Highlands of Scotland. From indoor activities to outdoor fun, you have plenty of choice for how to fill your time. There’s no saying what you might find yourself doing if you visit Inverness in March. So book your break and get ready to experience an amazing part of Scotland at a glorious time of year.
