Self-catering accommodation in Inverness
Inverness is a city on Scotland’s north-east coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. The capital of the Highlands, it is home to a huge variety of visitor attractions. The atmospheric grounds of the 19th-century Inverness Castle can be explored, while at the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery you can learn more about the people of the Highlands and their ancient, natural and artistic history.
Plenty of entertainment is on offer from the city's Eden Court Theatre with its two theatre spaces and two-screen cinema, or for a quieter but no less impressive show, try Inverness Botanic Gardens. The Tropical House and Cactus House take you far beyond the Highlands of Scotland with a wide variety of plants on display, while you can buy something more domestic to take home as a souvenir of your visit. Inverness also has a great selection of restaurants and bars as well as shops ranging from the distinctively Scottish to favourite high-street brands.
While there is plenty to do in the city, a self-catering holiday cottage in Inverness also allows you to explore the wider Highlands. The picturesque village of Beauly lies to the west of Inverness while in the north-east you’ll find the traditional seaside town of Nairn. Famed for its sandy beach, the town was known in Victorian times as "The Brighton of the North" and remains a popular holiday destination to this day. Other nearby highlights include Culloden Battlefield, site of the final, fateful clash of the Jacobite Risings and St Andrews Cathedral.
And of course, no stay in one of our holiday cottages in Inverness would be complete without visiting the 23-mile-long Loch Ness and attempting to spot the fabled Loch Ness Monster for yourself. Should Nessie fail to put in an appearance, you can at least visit the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition to learn more about what you missed!
