Cheap flights to Inverness
Remote mountains, stunning natural beauty, myth, folklore and even a mysterious sea monster – holidays in Inverness and the Scottish Highlands offer you something entirely different. Not only does Inverness have the title of most northerly city in the UK, but it also has the honour of being the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. And any trip to arguably the most beautiful part of the country is not complete without first stopping in this small yet vibrant place. Located along the River Ness with the stunning pink-hued Inverness Castle keeping a watchful eye, Inverness is steeped in history both inside and outside the city.
