Make a holiday cottage in Inverness your home away from home

Known as ‘The Gateway to the Highlands’, Inverness attracts visitors from all over the world in search of Scotland’s rugged and unique landscapes. HomeAway has a very large selection of holiday cottages in Inverness available, allowing guests to experience life in the Highlands with all the comforts of home. Inverness holiday cottages range from luxury manors to traditional Highland homes and cottages. The selection spans all budgets, often pets are welcomed, and many come with a variety of amenities including internet access. Inverness may be small, but it has a lot to offer. The city itself is one of the fastest growing in the UK and has a vibrant centre filled with excellent shopping and dining opportunities. Just outside the city and within striking distance is a multitude of natural attractions, both on land and in the water.

Things to do

-Sightseeing: The Old Town is the heart and soul of Inverness. The city sits on the banks of the River Ness and can trace its origins back to the 6th century when it was an important port town. Old Town Inverness contains many of the city’s historic treasures and is also packed with great restaurants, cafés, bars, and shops. Among the many highlights of Old Town Inverness are the Victorian Market, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, and Inverness Castle.

-Family attractions: Loch Ness and what may or may not lie beneath its waters has fascinated visitors for decades. Those staying in holiday homes in Inverness will find that reaching the legendary loch is as easy as taking a cruise down the Caledonian Canal. Once at Loch Ness, there are a number of different activities to choose from. Cruises and fishing trips are two popular options. On land, visitors can enjoy hiking on their own on well-marked trails, or participate in an organised tour.

-Historical attractions: The Culloden Battlefield was the site of the final battle of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. It’s located just outside the city, a short drive from Inverness holiday cottages. In addition to the original battlefield, there is now a brand new visitor centre on site where visitors can learn about the events leading up to the battle and details about the battle itself.

-Nature: Moray Firth is an inlet just beyond Inverness that is famous for its dolphin watching. Bottlenose dolphins call the Firth their home year-round and are seen regularly. Other marine mammals that make occasional appearances include the harbour porpoise, pilot whale, and basking shark. Numerous tour operators organise cruises out into Moray Firth that depart from locations just outside Inverness throughout the year. If true seclusion is on the cards, take a bus journey north to Ullapool, where many ferry rides are available to nearby islands.

-Museums: The Titanic Museum is an interactive and evolving exhibition space dedicated to the ill-fated ocean liner. It features a 1:10 scale model of the ship, photographs and artwork related to the Titanic, and a model of one of the ship’s lifeboats. There are also several interactive exhibits on modern maritime practices to round out the museum. The Titanic Museum is open from 12pm - 5pm daily.

Weather in Inverness

Summertime is by far the most popular time to visit Inverness. This is when the city heats up to 18°C and receives an average of 12 hours of sunshine. Things cool off in September and October and winter temperatures can get pretty frosty. Be warned: rain is a part of life in Inverness. It rains pretty steadily across the seasons, but is less common in the summer.

Travel to Inverness

Despite its remote location, Inverness is surprisingly well connected. The Highlands and Islands Airport is just seven kilometres north of Inverness. The airport has a taxi stand and also operates a bus to Central Inverness, which is just 15 minutes away. Alternatively, visitors can take a train or bus, or drive directly to their holiday cottage in Inverness. Rail journeys from Edinburgh can take as little as three hours, but from London, between 9 and 15.

They have obviously paid attention to detail and put their guests needs first. Veronica could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The apartment is so comfortable with such craftsmanship throughout the restoration of the old convent. Couldn’t be better placed to Visit highlands. Second time in the convent. At no 3 before. No 1 is even better. Will be back to see how felicity and Chris progress. All this AND dog friendly.
