Journeys end and begin as transport from across country and local area merge in Inverness.  Flights connect the islands with the mainland and further a field, from the South, track and tarmac run side by side cutting through the Cairngorms, the A9 acting as an artery for the north, heading to where the lights of Inverness flood the Moray Firth.  The Caledonian Canal flows into Loch Ness and boats navigate through the locks to moor for respite.  Britain’s most northerly city is a life line to all who visit and those who live for hundreds of miles around.  Historically, Inverness was a gathering place for families and clans across the Highlands and it still is today, with people from a far coming to meet for music, food, dancing and festivities.  It is a millennium city for islanders and highlanders to host visitors and to trade. Music resounds from venues bursting with punters there for the craic. Be it sunny, a howling gale and bitterly cold, winter or summer, highlanders welcome any traveller and provide the best quality food, drink and music. Inverness is a place where mythical beasts could really exist, where castles are inhabited and clan battles are seem raw and real.  Although a bustling city, the majesty of the mountains to the west and the surrounding sea and loch creates mystery and power.
