Explore the Highland Capital
Inverness, the administrative and cultural capital of the Highlands, became Scotland's fifth city as part of the millennium celebrations. Affectionately called "Inversneckie" by the locals, the city lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth.
The city has a number of historic buildings, prominent landmarks and wonderful sights and has been a natural focus for lines of communication to and through the Highlands for the last two thousand years.
Choose from two different walking tours in English or sign up for our German tour. While all our tours are bit different, they have one thing in common: You will get a warm welcome from an enthusiastic guide, who will turn your walking tour into something truly special.
