How to Spend 2 Days in Inverness
Situated along the River Ness at the end of the Great Glen, Inverness is a picturesque town surrounded by medieval ruins, prehistoric sites, and the rugged landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. With two days, you’ll have time to enjoy the city highlights and venture out into the countryside. Here are options for two days in Inverness. 

Day 1: City Sights & Outlander Tours
Morning: Start your day at the Inverness Victorian Market, then head to the Scottish Kiltmaker Visitor Centre, where you can try on kilts and learn about the history of traditional Scottish attire. Take a walking tour to the top historic sites, like Inverness Castle and Abertarff House, or explore the city on a hop-on hop-off bus tour. 

Afternoon: Outlander, the wildly popular book and TV series, was inspired by the historic sites and landscapes outside Inverness. Take an Outlander-themed tour, and visit filming locations and historic sites like the Culloden Battlefield and Clava Cairns, an ancient cemetery complete with standing stones, just outside the city.  

Night: Head to Inverness Castle to watch the sunset over the River Ness, and enjoy dinner at one of the cozy restaurants alongside the banks of the river. Finish the evening with some traditional Scottish music at one of Old Town’s historic pubs. 

Day 2: Loch Ness and the Black Isle  
Morning: No visit to Inverness is complete without a visit to Loch Ness. Tours of the loch from Inverness often include a boat cruise and tour of Urquhart Castle. You can also rent a bike and explore the shores of Loch Ness at your own pace.  

Afternoon: Spend the afternoon exploring the Black Isle peninsula, known for its food and drink scene and for being one of the best spots in Scotland to spot bottlenose dolphins. Several full-day tours from Inverness combine a visit to Loch Ness with a tour of the Black Isle. 

Night: Conclude your day with a tour of the Glen Ord Distillery on the Black Isle before heading back to Inverness to sample the microbrews at the Black Isle Brewery. You can also catch an opera performance, ballet, or musical at the Eden Court theatre.
