Take a cruise on nearby Loch Ness with Urquhart Castle on its shores; visit the Cairngorms National Park with Aviemore at its centre, or slightly further afield, take a day trip to the beautiful Isle of Skye or north to the Orkney Islands.
The area is renowned for the large number of historical attractions which include Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Cawdor and Brodie Castles to name just a few.

On the Moray Firth the Scottish Dolphin Centre is the perfect place to see the world’s biggest bottlenose dolphins. Depending on the time of year you might even be able to do some whale-watching. Minke and killer whales both visit these waters and there have been sightings of sperm whales and pilot whales too. The centre offers hourly guided tours and a very informative learning centre that children will love, and admission is free. For the less energetic, sit back relax and unwind and enjoy this peaceful setting. Beach 12½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth. With its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings, it is a pretty place which is well-known for its floral displays.

The River Ness provides a key focus within the city, and attractions like the castle, Inverness Cathedral and the Eden Court Theatre can all be found on its banks; together with some of the city's many shops and restaurants.

Follow the River Ness for long enough and you will end up by the shores of the best known loch in Scotland - Loch Ness. Thanks to its famous resident - Nessie, the friendly Loch Ness monster it has become one of the most popular areas for tourists to visit. Explore the visitors centre by the shore and learn the history of this legend. You might even spot this illusive creature for yourself as you stroll the area.

To the East of Inverness is Nairn, rated second in a list of top desirable destinations for 2010! But its not surprising because with its long, sandy, Blue Flag beaches and promenades it competes with some of the popular tourist beaches in the south of England. Its unique micro-climate also helps to ensure that it has more hours of sunshine and less rainfall than towns just 15 miles away.

Off shore The Moray Firth is home to one of only two colonies of dolphins in the UK and they are often spotted from viewpoints along Nairn's shore. The seafront also hosts an active harbour, with boat owners offering trips to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins or simply to view Nairn from a different angle.

Areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Culbin Forest and Culbin Sands Nature Reserve can be observed inland. Enjoy spotting many species of flora and fauna, as well as birds and migratory flocks. And for those who enjoy the invigorating sea air, there are magnificent views across the Moray Firth.
