This pretty market town and royal burgh (a Scottish town granted a royal charter) makes for a very pleasant stop if you're heading north from Inverness. Although it may not have the headline-grabbing attractions of some other Northern Highland towns—notwithstanding its excellent museum—Dingwall's historic center, replete with alluring architecture, charming cafés, and quaint little shops, makes it well worth a stop. What's more, it's a convenient place to stock up on fuel and supplies before venturing farther up the east coast; opportunities become scarcer after this point.
