Inverness Alternative

Jump to last reply

I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Scotland, which will probably be in May 2016.

For the Inverness area, most posts on the forum suggest that it is "better" to stay in another town as Inverness itself is, well, just another large city.

I would love some more specific suggestions of an alternative base for Culloden, Clava Cairns, and the surrounding area. We are planning to be in this area at least 3 nights.

We will have just come from Skye (probably Portree, although I wouldn't mind other suggestions here as well), which is seaside, so inland might be a nice alternative. In one trip report I read, they stayed in Grantown on Spey and were pleased with it. What kind of a drive (to Culloden, for instance) would we be experiencing if we use that as a base?

Any and all suggestions welcome - from seaside to more inland highlands.
