Camping & Glamping Breaks in Inverness with Cosy Outdoors
Sitting on the banks of the River Ness, Inverness is known as the gateway to the spectacular Scottish Highlands. Known as the unofficial capital of the region, Inverness is compact enough to explore on foot but large enough to offer plenty of activities for your Highlands holiday.
Outside Inverness, you’ll find loads of stunning nature to explore. The iconic Loch Ness is just a 15-minute drive from Inverness town centre and just a little further afield you’ll find the UK's biggest national park, the Cairngorms, full of gorgeous scenery and fascinating wildlife.
Explore Inverness city centre
One of the fastest-growing cities in Europe, Inverness is known as one of the best places in the UK to live and is home to many festivals and distinctive events like the Inverness Highland Games.
Spend your days strolling around the quaint streets of the old town, visiting its quirky shops, browse the stalls at the Victorian Market and the antique books at Leakey’s, the largest second-hand bookshop in Scotland. High street fans are well-catered to as well, with the Eastgate Shopping Centre being home to a whole host of the country’s favourite brands.
Notable historic buildings in Inverness include Inverness Castle with its viewing platform offering magnificent views of the countryside around Inverness, St Andrew's Cathedral by the river and the Inverness Town House, a stunning hall ripped right out of the pages of a fairytale. Feeling peckish? Lucky for you, Inverness is home to many a high-quality restaurant, cafe and tea room offering quality cuisine from traditional Scottish fare to international dishes.
Adventures along the water
Along the river, you’ll find a selection of boutiques and galleries exhibiting the works of local artists and makers as well as the Ness Islands, a wonderful destination for a calm afternoon stroll. The wider Inverness area is also home to some truly gorgeous scenery. From the Cairngorms to Loch Ness, you’ll find plenty to do whether you want to go skiing, wildlife watching or cryptid-hunting.
The Caledonian Canal is another fantastic place to visit, stretching from the outskirts of Inverness all the way to Fort William on the West Coast. Cycling or walking along the canal is sure to offer a fun family day out, and you can stop at the An Talla visitor centre along the way for some refreshments and shopping opportunities.
