For those of us who love to travel to the Scottish Highlands, there are places we simply can’t get enough of. If you want to find out why,we made a list of the places you must visit while visiting this beautiful region of the UK.
St. Andrew’s Cathedral
You can find this impressive 19th-century church at Inverness and admire its gothic design that was cut short for the lack of funds but still came out outstanding. The St. Andrew’s Cathedral is the Bishop of Moray’s seat and it features an astounding Austrian oak-made choir along with their artful stained-glass windows. A paradise for architects.
This 60-mile-long waterway connects Fort William to the northeast of the Inverness region, and it runs all along the Great Glen. Additionally, following the Caledonian Canal will take you to iconic places such as Loch Ness, while going through Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, and Loch Dochfour. You can sail it on cruises and pleasure boats.
Travellers from outside Europe might love this place the most since there might be no castles where they come from. If you are a fan of Shakespeare, you’ll know interesting facts about this place right off the bat. Made up of Neo-Roman red stone, tourists always have fun exploring the grounds and looking at the River Ness.
Eden Court Theatre and Cinema
This modern theatre is the perfect place to go watch an opera, a play, music artists’ performances, ballets, and even some films. It is located next to the River Ness and has a futuristic look about it that makes it stand out from the Gothic-designed mansion thatneighbours it.
Keep these places in mind for your next visit to the Scottish Highlands and enjoy a wide array of activities and tours available on each one.
