Inverness

Inverness ©
Inverness, often described as the Gateway to the Highlands, is a thriving commercial and industrial center.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Fri): step into the grandiose world of Fort George and then get your game on at Wildwoodz. Here are some ideas for day two: get in on the family fun at Landmark Forest Adventure Park and then identify plant and animal life at Loch Garten Nature Reserve.

Plan my Inverness trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

London to Inverness is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Prepare for little chillier weather when traveling from London in July: high temperatures in Inverness hover around 22°C and lows are around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) so you can drive to Edinburgh.
