    Is it a church? Bookstore? Cafe? It's LEAKEY'S!

    by JessH Updated May 11, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For some reason this place seems to be almost somewhat of a little, well-kept secret - I have met numerous people who have visited Inverness and most of them had never heard of Leakey's before. So let me tell you about it!
    This is Scotland's largest second-hand bookstore. Opened in 1972 and formerly home to St Mary's Gaelic Church (built 1792), the historic premises are a perfect environment to browse through rows of tall wooden shelves stuffed with books on every subject imaginable.

    We spent 2 rainy afternoons in Leakey's, trying to choose how much money we'd would and could spend, and on which books exactly. The wood burning oven near the entrance made the whole space even more inviting and cosier, if that's at all possible.
    John found collections of all of Shakespeare's works, another on the history of the United Kingdom - leather-bound and over 80 years old! I spotted the entire collection of Jane Austin novels, as well as limited edition travel books from National Geographic... the choices are endless! Here, you can find anything from an antique book worth hundreds of pounds, right down to a tatty and used paperback novel for a couple of pounds that will make an entertaining read on your next train or plane trip.

    We finally made our minds up & treated ourselves and purchased one of "the classics": 9 volumes (Folio Press) collectible edition of Sherlock Holmes novels for £130.-

    Leakey's also stocks antique (guaranteed over 100 years old) prints, photographs and maps with prices starting from £65.- and up. I spotted a gorgeous antique pencil sketch of the apprentice pillar inside Roslin Chapel... maybe I'll get it next time!
    The staff are very helpful and will try to assist if you are looking for something in particular.

    Opening Hours: All year, Mon.-Sat. 10:00-17:00.
    Throughout the day you can enjoy home-baked scones and various cakes with a lovely coffee or tea selection at reasonable prices.
    Lunch menu (daily soup, sandwiches, salads, baked potatoes etc.) is served from 12 onwards.
    The cafe seats approx. 40 people and also doubles as a small art gallery for local artists.

    What's that noise? The Inverness Highland Games!

    by JessH Updated Jun 16, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an annual event that takes place in July in Bught Park Arena, just south of the city centre on the bank of the river Ness.

    Nobody knows exactly when the first Inverness Highland Games took place, but we do know is that back in 1822 the Inverness Courier newspaper reported that fundraising was taking place in the town to revive those primeval competitions and give Inverness games that its residents could be proud of. Thanks to the efforts of those early fundraisers, 186 years later the Highland Games are still alive and well as one of the largest and most enjoyable Highland Games in the North of Scotland.

    There are numerous Highland Games every summer, all over Scotland and even in other countries! The competitive element is a major attraction in itself, but combine it with the spectacle of Highland dancers and pipers, the grandeur of the Scottish scenery and last but not least, the highly enthusiastic crowds make Highland Games a *must* if you're in Scotland in summer!

    Here are a few of the "heavy competitions:"

    > Caber Toss: A long tapered log is stood upright, balacned vertically in the competitor’s hands who then runs forward and, well, tosses it as far as he can.

    > Stone Put: This event is similar to the modern-day shot put in the Olympic Games, but instead of a steel shot a large stone of variable weight is often used.

    > Scottish Hammer Throw: A round metal ball (16-22 lb for men; 12-16 lb for women) is attached to the end of a shaft about 4 feet long. You spin, you whirl it around your head and then throw it for distance over the shoulder.

    > Sheaf Toss: A bundle of straw weighing 20 lb (9 kg) for men and 10 lb (4.5 kg) for women is tossed vertically with a pitchfork over a raised bar, similar to the one used in pole vaulting.

    > There is also a Wrestling Competition and although it might not look like it: there ARE rules!

    > It might be something you remember from your days in the school yard, but the Tug-Of-War at the Highland Games gets gritty & muddy!

    Other Entertainment / Competitions:

    > Competitive Highland Dancing is a very technical dance requiring many hours of training for several years. It actually has more in common with ballet than with social dancing of Scottish Country Dance. In addition, the Highland dances are performed solo (and often over swords!)

    > And last but not least, everyone at the games enjoys the Bagpipes blaring-out "Scotland the Brave" or "Flower of Scotland" accompanied by thundering applause and sing-along. But the pipes and drums are not the only music which can be heard at Highland games: you'll hear fiddling, harp circles, Celtic bands and other forms of musical entertainment.
    --> In 2009 the Inverness Highland Games with plenty of strong Scottish men throwing rocks and logs and unsuspecting tourists (haha!) took place on 18th & 19th July.

    We visited on the 2nd day of the games (adult ticket is £4.-) and had a fantastic time! We were greeted by the "Haggis family" at the gates (the kids loved this), saw many of the Heavies competing, the adorable Highland dancing children, plenty of great food and all in all the event was perfectly organised. We spent quiet a few hours at the Highland Games and everyone had a fantastic time.
    I even saw a bunch of "German" highlanders but am sorry to say that they seemed rather skinny compared to the heavies from Scotland, New Zealand, America, etc.! haha!
    There are plenty of food & beverage options (both John & his dad tucked into a hot portion of Stovies, whist the rest of us enjoyed fish 'n' chips, Haggis and freshly made ice creams), stalls that sell Highland craft & souvenirs, also plenty of toilet facilities and a play area to keep smaller children occupied. I'd definitely go to the games again next year!

    Update 2010: This year, we visited the Highland Games and they took place in the Northern Meeting Park, a slightly different venue along the River Ness.

    The Ness Walk - As Described in Intro to Inverness

    by scotlandscotour Updated Jun 22, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Honestly, I don't think anything in the Inverness Town warrants "must see" status, in the bigger picture of Scotland. But if you are in Inverness for a few hours, you really should walk the Ness Walk.

    A Delightful Walk Around Inverness - 1 hour

    From the Town Hall (look up at the lovely architecture and ignore the gaudy MacDonalds opposite) and nearby Tourist Information Centre (particularly friendly staff in this one) walk downhill to the River, but don't cross.

    Turn left and walk upstream, with the water on your right hand side. Pass the white suspension bridge and continue to a second, smaller bridge, which then takes you via lovely wooded islands across the river.
    Once across the river, turn right and head downstream (river still to your right). Again ignore the white suspension bridge. Optional stop in Eden Court to check out events for evening, and or a cup of tea!

    Continue alongside river past the main bridge (traffic) and carry along until you reach another footbridge, which you cross to get back to City Centre.

    Walking: The Ness Islands and the Caledonian Canal

    by JessH Updated Apr 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every time we're in Inverness we do a lot of walking and on your initial visit to the city there's no better way to take-in the general layout of Inverness and some of its sights than by walking the Ness Islands and the Caledonian Canal. Every time we've walked along this path we've discovered new little sights: wooden sculptures, play areas and even a very old pet cemetery (this is a favourite area for dog walkers as well).
    I will try to explain the route as best as I can here, starting from a very easy-to-find landmark: Inverness Castle. The short walk takes you around 1 hour... to include the Caledonian Canal and up towards the Moray Firth will take around 4 hours of walking. (I've included a link to a map of this walk at the end of this tip.)

    From Inverness Castle, walk down along the river bank (with the water on your right) on Castle Road and follow the same street (name changes to Ness Bank after a while) and you'll find the Ness Islands, a welcome little tranquil forest and natural park with plenty of local wildlife. This area is great for walks, picnics and just for catching your breath and escaping the busy streets of the city in scenic and peaceful surroundings.

    You can cross the river on various little pedestrian bridges, turn left once you reach the other side of the river and the path passes Whin Island (large playground for children, rowing boats and a miniature train) and Bught Park (venue for the Highland Games, football pitches and crazy golf course) and the Floral Hall; a sub-tropical horticultural hall that is open all year round. Not far from here is also the ice rink and the Inverness Leisure centre (swimming pool, gym, climbing wall, etc.)

    --> (NOTE: for the shorter walk (approx. 1 hour), you now turn RIGHT once you've crossed the Ness Islands' bridges and head up along the Ness Walk with the river on your right. This will bring you past the Eden Court Theatre and eventually also the Highland House of Fraser and The Kitchen restaurant.)

    Now, where was I? Oh yes: Turn left along the river bank (following signs for the Great Glen Way). At the Floral Hall turn right and walk up Bught Road. Then cross the main road via the small bridge over the Caledonian Canal (to your left). Continue along the tarmac tow-path beside the canal when the Great Glen Way heads off to the left.

    Eventually you'll reach a small marina; the path has to leave the side of the canal here and run on the road through the yard (sign for Muirtown lochs); pick up the tow path once more on the far side. This path will bring you past the beach and eventually you can turn right and walk back down (south) along Kessock Road, with the River Ness on your left.

    Kessock Road branches-off but you can stay on Anderson Street right by the water's edge - eventually this way will bring you back to the city centre...

    Put on a good pair of walking shoes and enjoy!

    Highland Cattle

    by Kaspian Updated Aug 29, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Highland cows" or "hairy cows" or "hyan coos", are a must-see while in this part of northern Scotland! It's just such a strange and funny animal to look at. They sport a long, thick coat of reddish hair and one really has to wonder how they see through those bangs. They also have a set of rather deadly looking horns. These cows live in the rain, rugged terrain, and bitter cold of the Highlands and thrive where most cattle would die. Don't be fooled though by their raggedy-looking appearance, these cows are actually pedigreed and are the oldest registered European beef cow--history dates them back in the area to at least the 12th century. They're a very intelligent, inquisitive bunch, and will spend as much time staring at you as you do at them. Though they're usually very calm and quiet in disposition, they can get a bit grumpy if you're standing in their way--there's a funny scene in the movie Rob Roy where Liam Neeson gets a good shove out of the way by one.

    Dallas Dhu Distillery (historical)

    by kathymof Updated Sep 1, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are lots of places you can visit on the Whiskey Trail of the Aberdeen and Grampian area but Dallas Dhu Historic Distilery is special. The entire distillery has been turned into a museum that expains the process of making Scotch whiskey. At the end you get to have a nip. It is a very nice self-guided tour where the entire process and all the equipment are very well explained. It is not that far to the east of Inverness so works as a day tour from there. The visit is made all the better by the beautiful road trip that gets you to the distillery. See my Dallas Dhu travelogue for more pictures.

    The Eden Court Theatre - Cinema, Musicals and More

    by JessH Updated Apr 4, 2012

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This building is the Scottish Highland's main entertainment venue (well, let's also not forget the Inverness Caledonian Thistle football stadium, of course!) and it's a theatre and a cinema rolled into one.

    Located by the bank of the River Ness, near the (St Andrew's) Cathedral and Northern Meeting Park, Eden Court was opened in April 1976.

    The theatre is sited in the grounds of what was once the official residence of the Bishops of Moray. Built in the 19th century for Bishop Robert Eden, the house was incorporated into the new arts centre providing dressing rooms and offices and later on, a small cinema. It gave up its name to the arts complex and was renamed the Bishop's Palace.
    Intriguingly, the theatre is said to be haunted: the most commonly seen ghost is the Green Lady. It is thought that she was the wife of one of the bishops who hung herself…

    Apart from screening movies, musicals and comedy shows, the theatre also provides a vital space for many classes and activities for the community (such as dancing or art classes for children, etc.).

    Upon entering the theatre there is a large cafeteria/restaurant area where you can sit by the huge glass windows on a rainy day, sipping a hot coffee whilst waiting for your movie / show to start, or (as we did!) just as an excuse to get out of a sudden downpour whilst out for a walk around the Ness Islands. They serve a proper full lunch and dinner menu here.

    The Tickets and Information office is located just inside the front doors of Eden Court and is open each day from 10:00am until 09:00pm.

    Walk along the River Ness

    by kathymof Updated Feb 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a wonderful walk along the River Ness. You can actually walk quite a ways starting in the area of Inverness Castle and heading south. It is a circular trip so you can start on one side and finish on the other. There are three beautiful foot bridges you can cross with two of them taking you to an island that is in the middle of the river. I walked it alone and felt perfectly safe the whole time. Many locals obviously enjoy the walk as well. One fun thing I saw is in the picture to the left - there was a downed tree on the island and someone had painted a mouth inside a cavity in the log and also painted an eye - it looked like the Loch Ness Monster! Kids would probably love it. The paths were well maintained and clean. It made for a very pleasant stoll on a warm, sunny afternoon.

    Opposite, on the corner of Bridge Street and Church Street, is the Tolbooth Steeple which dates from 1791 and which had to be repaired after an earth tremor in 1816. Built by the architect William Sibbald of Edinburgh, the steeple is 130 feet high and cost some £3,400 to build.

    Kilravock Castle

    by stevezero Written Jun 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kilravock Castle is a traditional Scottish castle, the Tower being built in 1460. It has the seat of the Roses since that time.
    he Kilravock tower was built by the 7th Baron under licence granted by John, Lord of the Isles and Earl of Ross, on 18th February 1460. There is a tradition that the architect was a servant of James III called Cochran, who also designed Cawdor Castle. In any case, Cawdor was built a few years earlier, and the same mason’s marks are to be found in the doorway stonework of both castles.
    The mansion house part was added in 1553 by the tenth baron, mainly to accommodate his household of seventeen female dependants - sisters and daughters.

    The castle is now a reasonably priced Bed and breakfast, but has a tearoom open to the public, and also a garden which you can visit (admission charge)

    This is a floral garden composed of green houses and outdoor gardens. It is in the middle of a large recreational complex that is toward the SW side of Inverness (west of the River Ness). You can wonder around and see different ecosytems in the various green houses. It is pretty surprising to see many of these plants this far north, especially in the Cactus House. They even have a Koi pond and the fish will come rushing up to you in hopes of a hand-out. The facilities are very well maintained as are all of the indoor and outdoor planted areas.

    Whiskey Tasting

    by Waylon Written Apr 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One trip that must be taken when in Inverness is to partake in a distillery tour. There are many distilleries throughout Scotland located in cities, towns and villages. Many are very near to Inverness. Most are along the "Whiskey Trail" located to the east of Inverness in the Speyside valley. Some popular ones are the Glenfiddich distillery in Speyside, The Glenmorangie distillery in Tain about 35 miles north of Inverness alongside the A9. One I would thoroughly recommend is the Talisker distillery located in the tiny village of Talisker on the Isle of Skye. This is about a 3 hour drive from Inverness along some of the most breath taking scenery of Scotland.
    Whichever distillery you decide to visit the usually consist of a tour of the premises showing how whiskey is made from the beginning right through to the final product which can take up to 18 years! They have whiskey tasting and all have a small gift shop where you can purchase bottles of whiskey, shirts, ornaments and other gift items.

    History and Heritage

    by Waylon Updated Dec 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If in the North of Scotland, and in my opinion the best part of Scotland, one must take the time to visit both the battlefield at Culloden Moor and the nearby Fort George.
    Culloden Battlefield was the location of the last battle fought on British soil. It was here that the English under William, Duke of Cumberland, defeated the Scottish rebellion and put and end to the Jacobite uprising. There is a very good visitor centre and one can take a walk around the battlefield and see the locations of where the two armies stood in an extended line before engaging in battle. There is the well of the dead, graves of the soldiers and all areas of the battlefield are marked out with signs and the booklets on offer at the visitor centre explain the battlefield in depth. I would highly recommend this site as a must see for the history buff, military buff or those with Scottish background of heritage.
    Also nearby Culloden Moor stands the mighty Fort George. This is a fort built in the middle 1750's after the Battle of Culloden to further stop another uprising in Scotland. Here the English Army, and latter the British Army, has stationed a regiment of soldiers. There is a excellent museum where can be viewed medals of various campaigns, military equipment, banners, articles of war, etc, etc. Far too much to mention. There is also a visitors guide that explains the different areas of the fort while walking around it's interior. There is the sally port, guardhouse, chapel, accomodation block, ramparts, etc. It's quite large and the architecture is simply amazing! One would need to spend at least a half day here to view it all and discover history not only of Fort George, but also the Scottish history in general. This is also the regimental home of the Queens Own Highlanders, who have merged with the Gordon Highlanders to form the current Highlanders regiment.
    Both of these locations, Culloden and Fort George, are nearby together and can be visited in a single day.

    An emotional visit to Culloden

    by JessH Updated Apr 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Culloden is an evocative place for many people... and I was unprepared for the emotions it evoked in me. As I sit here writing this tip, we approach the 266th anniversary of this great battle and the subsequent awful defeat. Not only is it the site of the last hand-to-hand combat to take place on British soil and the last stand of an ancient Gaelic royal dynasty, but it is also the place where the Highland clan culture of Scotland cried out one last time in utter defiance... the battle of Culloden on April 16th 1746 meant - quite simply - the end of an era for Scotland.

    Much has been done over the past years to restore the battlefield (Drumossie Moor, to the north east of Inverness) to its original state and to preserve the mass graves which lay dotted throughout the land, and the new and very informative visitors centre was opened in the year 2007.

    When we first arrived John and I took a walk around the field outside. Without having seen the exhibits and really been immersed in the horror of this battle yet, the field seemed gloomy and melancholic enough. But nothing could have prepared me for the feelings and the tears that welled-up when we walked through the field again after having toured the inside of the centre.

    The exhibits include an amazing battle immersion film, where you stand in a room with 4 projector screens an all sides, so you feel like you are right in the centre of the fight. There is also a large animated battle table and a rooftop viewing area. Visitors can also walk the battlefield itself with portable GPS-enabled audio guides.

    FACTS:

    > The Battle of Culloden was the last of the great Jacobite risings – attempting to reinstate a Stuart monarch on the throne of Britain - and was led by Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) against the Duke of Cumberland and his "Hanoverian" government army: made mostly of English, along with a significant number of Scottish Lowlanders and Highlanders, men from Ireland and a small number of Hessians from Germany and Austrians.

    > From the beginning, Stuart's plan was doomed: he was inexperienced, and most of the Jacobites fighting for him were already on the brink of exhaustion and starvation when they arrived in Inverness. Also, the ground at Culloden was a "moor": marshy swamp land making every step arduous and grueling, and effective battle almost impossible.
    Highlanders were renown for their full-on charge of the enemy, but on this soft ground the Duke's heavy artillery and cavalry were of great advantage. The artillery decimated the clans as they awaited the command to charge. Many fell simply because the command to charge came too late from the inexperienced Charles, whereas the government troops just kept firing and decimated the Jacobite army. It was - quite frankly - a slaughter.

    > On this day, heavily outnumbered (approx. 9000 to 6000) and despite only a grim and narrow chance of success, brave men fought for their beliefs and their land... and they shall never be forgotten.

    Even though I am merely an "adopted Scot" (i.e. I've married a Scotsman) I see Scotland as my second home and my love for this country and its people runs deep. I left Culloden with both a heavy heart, but also with a sense of pride and joy in the knowledge that even after this heartbreaking defeat and centuries of oppression, the defiant nature of the Scottish people was never quite extinguished, and that they remain patriotic and insubordinate to this day.

    If you are Scottish, have Scottish ancestry or are merely interested in the history of this great country, you cannot miss a visit to Culloden. The battlefield is open all year, every day, but the opening timings for the visitor's centre are:
    24 January - 31 March: 10am-4pm.
    1 April - 30 September: 9am-6pm.
    1 October - 31 October: 9am-5pm.
    1 November - 23 December: 10am-4pm.
    Closed: 24 December - 23 January.

    Entrance Fees:
    Adult: £10.00.
    Family: £24.00
    Concession: £7.50.
    Entrance is free if you are a member of the National Trust for Scotland.

    Hire of a battlefield tour PDA is included in the price of admission.
