Inverness really has got all the elements for a memorable city break. Discover its flourishing culinary scene, explore the Victorian Market or Eastgate Shopping Centre for a bit of retail therapy, catch one of the many events at Eden Court and other venues, or take your time to admire art exhibitions in the city’s gallery spaces.
Just taking a wander through the handsome city centre is pretty enjoyable too; appreciate Inverness Castle and St Andrew’s Cathedral, then stroll along the banks of the River Ness, crossing the suspension bridge for some peace and relaxation on the Ness Islands. Ah, bliss!
Stretching out on the north east coast, Aberdeen is bordered by lush Royal Deeside and the majestic Cairngorms National Park to the west and panoramic sea views to the east. In Aberdeen you can feel the richness of the city’s history all around you, from the traditional Doric accent of local residents to the glinting granite buildings lining the streets.
