INVERNESS AS A DESTINATION FOR HEN PARTIES;
Inverness, the capital and principal cross-roads of the highlands of Scotland, has an enviable location at the head of the great glen and on the shores of the Moray Firth.
Bustling, cosmopolitan and attractive capital of the highlands and Scotland’s millennium city, Inverness makes an ideal location for hen parties.
Granted City status in December 2000, Inverness made a bid to become European Capital of culture in 2008. The city boasts a fine range of facilities and services from night clubs to rail and air links, Restaurants, coffee shops and cafes to amazing shopping centres, boutiques and designer outlets.
And of course there is a superb selection of accommodation from major hotel chains and private guest houses to welcoming B&B’s and from back packing hostels to self-catering establishments.
Every thing that a good Hen party requires is within easy walking distance of the city centre where pipers, jugglers and fiddlers provide a welcome distraction from the serious business of retail therapy.
For the more adventurous Hen’s there are numerous other attractions and places to visit just outside the city, for instance the Inverness Castle where those who are up for a real challenge can sign up as a mid-18th
Century soldier or just admire the city’s superb floral displays
Nearby in Castle Wynd are the famous Inverness museum and Art Gallery as well as the tourist information centre.
For those that are more interested in burning off the calories before hitting the night spots there are a wide rang of challenging activities in and around the city. These range from water rides at the aqua dome to paragliding; cycling to diving, paint balling to ten pin bowling and horse riding to golfing.
After dark there are many pubs and night clubs to choose from.
Inverness is serviced by rail, air and motorways.
