Janice’s Top Things to Do in and around Inverness

  • Visit Culloden Battlefield
    As their website says a visit to Culloden Battlefield is poignant yet fascinating. If you like your history this is well worth a visit.
  • Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle
    You can’t come to Inverness and not visit Loch Ness. A must for everyone.
  • Café No. 1
    A fantastic spot for something to eat. It is definitely one of my favourites to go to in Inverness. Scotland is home to great Scottish gin too so I recommend trying one or two while you are here.

Kevin’s Top things to do in and around Inverness

  • Play golf at Castle Stuart
    You are spoilt for choice when it comes to golf if you stay in Inverness. Castle Stuart, Nairn and Dornoch to name just three courses close enough to squeeze in a round of links Golf.
  • Watch live music in Hootananny’s
    Experience a proper Highland welcome with a visit to Hootananny’s and enjoy some live music and a local tipple.
  • Take a walk along Nairn Beach
    Just 15 miles away, Nairn beach stretches for miles along the Moray Firth. Breathe in the sea air and take in fantastic views of the Black Isle.
  • Take in a show at Eden Court Theatre
    Eden Court is an iconic building in Inverness. As the biggest multi-arts venue in Scotland it houses two theatres and two cinemas. Please ask Janice or Kevin to check what’s on for you during your stay.

Loved our stay at Furan! Large room, comfortable bed and even a mini fridge (handy since my partner and I were buying local craft beer during our journey that we wanted to our enjoy). Janice is an incredible host with a great sense of humour, lots of great recommendations for eating and drinking as well as a handy Inverness road trip guide with SatNav coordinates for our day out (even one that was Outlander themed).
