Hotels in Inverness

 

Inverness is the most northern city in the British Isles, higher still than Aberdeen and Dundee. It’s often called the gateway city to the highlands, as it’s the last big settlement before you head north into Scotland’s wilderness. It’s thought that the origins of the city actually date back to the 12th century, but many of the buildings in the centre hark back to the 19th and 20th centuries. Although it’s one of the most isolated and oldest cities in the UK, Inverness still has a bustling centre with plenty of places to stay.

 

City Centre

 

The city is split in two by the River Ness, and crowned with Inverness Castle and St Andrews Cathedral. Inverness’ train station is in the north of the city centre, and there are plenty of hotels and apartments nearby. However, you’ll find that the accommodation on the river is much more expensive than the options on the outskirts (this is where you can find great hostels and guest houses for a much cheaper price!). The Old Town is one of the most popular places to stay in the city centre, as it has a wealth of pubs, cafes and shops, as well as a few bars and clubs.

 

If you’re looking for somewhere a little quieter, head to the mouth of the river in the north of the city. The guest houses and B&Bs here are affordable, and make great bases for exploring the rest of the region.

 

Drumnadroch & Loch Ness

 

Although Loch Ness is not technically in Inverness, it’s one of the reasons travellers flock to this area. The Loch is south west of the city, and you can easily reach it by car or bus. There are romantic country lodges and affordable B&Bs on each side of the river, and there are many more surrounding Fort Augustus at the very southern tip of the Loch. Unfortunately, we can’t give you tips on which one is best for viewings of the Loch Ness monster.

 

Cairngorms National Park

 

The Cairngorms is another attraction just outside of Inverness. This is one of the most beautiful and picturesque areas of Scotland, ripe for a weekend of hiking, hunting and relaxing. You can do so in one of the friendly hostels or luxury apartments, as there’s a huge variety of accommodation within the park.
