Things to do in the Highlands


The Highlands of Scotland is a beautiful and inspiring area with a fascinating history, ancient landscapes and a long list of things to see and do. Explore famous lochs - there’s one right next to Monster Lodge which is home to a very famous creature!


There are breathtaking beaches and magnificent glens, battlefields and ancient monuments, local arts and crafts, you can try almost every outdoor activity you could think of and marvel at the beauty of a remarkable range of wildlife.


In inverness you can enjoy the circular walk from the castle along the river looking over to St Andrew’s Cathedral and through the Ness Islands. You'll see anglers casting long lines for leaping Atlantic salmon. You can even buy a daily ticket and try it for yourself.


Above the city lies Craig Phadrig, once the stronghold of Pictish Kings, which offers interesting forest walks and magnificent views of the Moray Firth, home to a diverse range of wildlife including bottlenose dolphins which can even be seen from the city.


Take in one of our many events and festivals, explore the art, history and heritage of the Highlands at Inverness Museum & Art Gallery and the Highland Folk Museum - or take an open-topped bus ride round the city or a Cruise down the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness, give Monster Lodge a wave on your way past.
