SCROLL DOWN

inverness


Kilts, bagpipes, Gaelic, clans and hot Jacobites (I'm looking at you, Jamie Fraser) - so many of our Scottish stereotypes come from the Highlands.

Inverness has always been the capital of the Highlands, the gateway between the Highland and Lowland communities. Yet Inverness has a complicated relationship with its highland heritage. On this audio tour of Inverness city centre you will delve into that relationship through ancient legends, invented traditions and a battle about a cheese.
