Invergordon (Inverness), Scotland, United Kingdom
A turbulent past of epic battles, clan rivalries and legendary monsters, combined with the many natural wonders of the Scottish Highlands, make this part of Scotland truly fascinating. Invergordon is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the northern highlands. A trip to the region wouldn't be complete without a visit to legendary Loch Ness, reputed to be the home of ‘Nessie,’ the Loch Ness Monster. The loch contains the largest amount of freshwater in the British Isles, actually more than all of the lakes in England and Wales combined. Discover the quaint Victorian seaside resort of Nairn, and the secrets of the whisky-making process in the area’s many distilleries.
The area surrounding Invergordon is remarkable for its historical significance. From the very early days of the Bronze Age, migrating Neolithic hunter-gatherers settled here, leaving their legacies at places like the Clava Cairns. Likewise, the battlefield of Culloden is nearby, where in 1745 the final, fateful clash of the Jacobite uprisings occurred.
