How to Spend 3 Days in Inverness
Whether you’re making a pit stop in the Highlands’ capital before heading out on a hiking expedition or spending a leisurely weekend in the UK’s northernmost city, Inverness is the perfect gateway to the Scottish Highlands. Here are a few ideas for spending 3 days in the city.

Day 1: Take a walking tour
Inverness’ compact center makes exploring the sights easy, so start your trip with a walking tour of the city. Take in the historic St Andrew’s Cathedral and Old High Church; get a view from the hilltop Inverness Castle; stroll the banks of the Ness River; then head out to the nearby Culloden Battlefield to learn the harrowing tales of the last battle fought on British soil. Don’t forget to stock up souvenirs in the city’s shopping district too – Inverness is the perfect place to pick up some tartan goods, Scottish shortbread and a bottle or two of Scotch whiskey.

Day 2: Learn the legends of the Loch Ness

Inverness sits at the mouth of Scotland’s most famous lake, Loch Ness, notorious for hiding the mythical Loch Ness Monster. Pay a visit to the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition to learn the eerie legends of Loch Ness, then take a cruise along the lake or hike along the banks and get a view from the battlements of the lakeside Urquhart Castle.

Day 3: Step in the footsteps of Macbeth

Spend the morning exploring the 14th Century fortress of Cawdor Castle, famous as the setting of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, then head to the coast where the North Sea inlet of Moray Firth is famous for its schools of bottle-nose dolphins. For the best chance of spotting the gentle sea creatures in their natural environment, take a cruise out to sea, then learn more about the region’s wildlife at the Dolphin and Seal Centre in North Kessock.
