    Inverness – a place of legend

    The far-flung capital of the Scottish Highlands is a place where myths and legends are as commonplace as potent whiskys and hearty haggis. Tales of the spine-tingling Loch Ness monster – Nessie – are told in Highland pubs. Stories of battle clashes with Vikings and Jacobite wars are still proudly remembered. And then there's the haunting, Shakespearean tragedy of Macbeth, oozing from the sandstone walls of Inverness Castle. Fairy tale lover or not, you're bound to be enchanted by the pubs with crackling fires and the chilly River Ness, the rising mountains of the Great Glen and the cosy Inverness holiday rentals that await.

    Embrace the Highland spirit in Inverness

    Inverness is where the Highlands meet the world. You can sway to the stirring skirl of bagpipes in the pubs, or sip smooth Scotch whiskys in the tasting rooms. You can cast the rod on fly fishing expeditions up the River Ness or seek out stories of long-forgotten Scottish clan kings in the castles. You can wax down the boots and conquer the rock-ribbed trails of Carn Eige and Mam Sodhail. You can unearth Bronze Age sepulchres at Clava Cairns. You can ride the funicular or even don the skis when there's snow on the Cairn Gorm Mountain.

    In search of monsters in Inverness

    Inverness holiday rentals near Loch Ness are the place to go if you're a bona fide member of the monster hunting brigade. That long lake, enfolded by the peaks of the Great Glen, has become legendary as the home of the Loch Ness Monster – Nessie, for short. You can learn all about the eerie sightings of the underwater beast at the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition in nearby Drumnadrochit and even leave with your own cuddly monster souvenir. Others might prefer to tartan up at The Clansman Centre in Fort Augustus – about an hour from Inverness by car –and delve into traditional turf houses and Scottish armoury exhibits.

    Finding Nessie in the Inverness summer

    Although Inverness looks handsome all year round, there's no question that summer is the best time to come for adventures along the hiking paths of the Great Glen and the River Ness, or for monster-hunting trips to Loch Ness. Months like June, July and August have far less rainfall than the winter months and can even clock temperatures of over 20 degrees. If your salopettes and skis are ready to ride the slopes of the Cairngorms, it's best to come in either January or February for snow coverage.

    Inverness – a gap in the Highlands

    Inverness sits at one end of the Great Glen – a wide valley that carves through the heart of the Scottish Highlands. If you're eager to seek out rustic Inverness holiday rentals in the Highlands, you can look southwards to the famous peaks of the Cairngorms National Park. They soar to over 4,000 feet with Ben Macdui, drawing snow for skiers in the winter. To the north and west is the land of lochs, where grass-clad, thistle-topped massifs like Sgurr na Lapaich drop steeply into hidden lochs, like Monar and Mullardoch – a walker's paradise.
