Promising epic Highlands scenery and monstrous lochs, Invergordon welcomes you to the heart of Scotland's land of castles, stories and scenery. Taste the prized Scottish gold in a glass, as you swirl and sample the produce of history-rich distilleries, or lace up your hiking boots to explore the Great Glen's wild mountains and green and gold blotched moorlands.
Sleepy Invergordon provides a charming welcome ashore, and you'll immediately enjoy stunning views across the widespread of the Firth. Loch Ness is a massive expanse of still water, surrounded by emerald, fortress-studded hills. What's lurking beneath has been the subject of intense speculation, and captured the world's imagination, since 1933. Cruise the loch on a boat trip and keep an eye out for any ripples disturbing the surface - perhaps you will be lucky enough to discover the truth about Nessie's mystery.
The River Ness flows on to Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands, which is overlooked by the sandstone rise of Inverness Castle. The fairytale Cawdor Castle is also within reach, set among immaculate gardens, and entered via an impressive drawbridge. The castle's links to Shakespeare's Macbeth are often mentioned, but in truth, they are a little tenuous, as this castle was built after King Macbeth's death. Fort George, meanwhile, is a colossal military institution, spread across a huge expanse. Visit to be immersed in the life of a soldier, as you wander among the vast battlements, amid a sea of redbrick military installations.
