One of my favorite cities due to its size, architecture and style. Old town is fantastic and has a great vibe. Venture out to the Necropolis and Cathedral to get more of a feel to this city.

The Necropolis
When we stepped off the bus and looked up, my friends and I all said “Whoa!” The Necropolis is the city of the dead and is a massive cemetery on a hill with elaborate headstones. Trek to the top for great city views with tombstones in your pics!

Jacobite Cruises
Jacobite cruises is a great way to explore Loch Ness in comfort. They offer different tours starting from the outskirts of Inverness. It is simple to get there if you do not have a car. There are buses that leave the central bus station in Inverness and go to the docks. The loading process is just as easy but remember to exchange your online voucher for a ticket inside the offices.
