Inverness Sights And Landmarks

We offer chauffeur driven transport for visitors to Inverness and the Highlands. We have picked some of the most popular sights and landmarks for you to visit while you are in the area.

Inverness Cathedral

The Cathedral began as the Mission in 1853, on the River Ness opposite its current location. Bishop Robert Eden then decided that the Cathedral for the joined Diocese should be in Inverness. So in July 1862 excavations for the new Cathedral started. The foundation stone of this was laid in 1866 by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Cathedral was opened for public prayer in 1869. This was the first new Cathedral to be completed in Great Britain following the Reformation.

Greig Street Bridge

The bridge is a vital Inverness landmark. It is an essential pedestrian path, and part of a riverside boardwalk. The bridge supplies views of neighbourhood buildings, and of capitals past.

Fort George

Fort George is the mightiest artillery stronghold in Britain. It was built after the 1746 loss at Culloden of Bonnie Prince Charlie. George II created it as the best protection against more Jacobite unrest. The outcome, Fort George, is the mightiest weapons stronghold in Britain, or even Europe. Its fort structures, weapons protections bristling with cannon, and exceptional collection of arms. This includes bayoneted muskets, pikes, swords and ammo bags. The fort provides a fascinating understanding into 18th-century army life.

Inverness Castle

Inverness Castle was initially a 12th-century earth and timber unit citadel. It was established by King David I. In the very early 14th century during the Wars of Independence, English troops under King Edward I occupied the castle.  It was taken and ruined by King Robert the Bruce in 1310. In the early 15th century Alexander, Earl of Mar, established a stone castle on the hill. In the 16th century George Gordon, Earl of Huntly included a high square rock tower.

Inverness Castle Viewpoint

The Castle Viewpoint is the latest visitor destination in Inverness. It uses remarkable 360-degree sights of the Highland Capital and the bordering scenery.If the climate is severe, you could enjoy the stunning views via pre-recorded, narrated drone video footage in a Round Room on the first floor.
