Today, I am posting a video clip of central Inverness, a city which is styled as Capital of the(Scottish) Highlands. Inverness is one of the oldest and famous towns in Scotland, dating from about AD585 although few buildings of real age or hsitorical significance have survived. The impressive castle dates from 1834 and is used by the Local Authority.
Current population of the city is 44,000.
The word Inverness comes from the Gaelic meaning "Mouth of the River Ness". A walk around the riverside will afford beautiful mountain views and wildlife in the heart of the city. Inverness offers a peaceful and historic setting and possibly best suited as base for touring the local area which includes Loch Ness, Cawdor Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Brodie Castle, Fort George and much more.
Well worth a visit in context of a Highlands tour.
