Best for? Its culture
Our top property pick: Moorhen Lodge
Often referred to as the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands, Inverness sits on the northeast coast and is a city unlike any other. While you can expect the attractions and charm that any other UK city has, here you also have access to incredible countryside and coastline.

It might be unofficially named as the West Highlands’ capital but in recent years it’s also been referred to as the Seafood Capital of Scotland.

Of course, if fish isn’t for you, there’s plenty of other reasons to visit Oban and lots of other dishes on the menu. Watersports, museums, walking trails and the incredible views keep holidaymakers of all ages very busy.
