Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The war museum is something to behold. We have been twice and still not seen it all. The Fort itself is outstanding . Visit 3 soon

    As mentioned it is a bouncy bridge connecting Inverness different parts of town. Good views of River Ness and worth experiencing.

    Some people may be dismissive of Inverness Cathedral as it is a 'modern ' cathedral. They are rather missing the point as it is historically important as the first new Protestant Cathedral to be built in Britain since the Reformation. It is also the most northerly cathedral in Britain.

    I was given a warm welcome on entry and there wasn't a 'mandatory' £2 entrance fee when I visited although a donation or buying the guide book was appreciated.

    I liked the cathedral which is a very good example of Gothic revival. It has a lovely carved choir screen which also serves as the war memorial to the members of the congregation who lost their lives in the First World War. Their names are inscribed on the bottom panels of the screen.

    The carving on the choir stalls is exquisite and the Caen stone altar and reredos are stunning - take time to admire the workmanship.

    There are some very good stained glass windows too.

    The Butterfly Memorial is a touching tribute to those who died during the covid pandemic as well as a reminder to all of us of a black period in modern history.

    There's a lot to find and enjoy in the Cathedral.

    It was worth a visit even though the castle was closed for renovation. The views were great and it's worth the walk and the time spent there.

    Don't miss it, just a few hundred meters from Clava chairn, you will witness this marvellous, huge, beautiful Culloden viaduct.

    I recently had the honor of touring the Boleskine estate and it was nothing short of life-changing. I took a solo tour with Steven and the amount of knowledge I learned was truly mind-blowing. I was particularly interested in the mystical traditions and history of the land, as well as the surrounding nature. Steven was well-versed in every aspect - and that's an understatement! He showed me the beautiful grounds, thoroughly explaining the plans for the estate's sustainable future. The The Boleskine House Foundation has ambitious plans that will surely benefit the community, the biodiversity of the land, and the world at large. From the start it was made clear that this was MY tour and we could walk and talk at my leisure. By the end of the tour, I was thoroughly questioning the meaning of life itself. Not only were the views breathtaking, my mind was thoroughly stimulated.
    I'd highly recommend a visit to Boleskine to anyone interested in the history OR the mysticism, as well as nature and sustainability practices for re-creating a bountiful ecosystem. There's no doubt in my mind that I will be returning. Take the tour - you won't regret it. Everything happens for a reason!

    Arrived with a group 10 young people. The three members of staff were absolutely fantastic! Professional and catered to the needs of the clients successfully. It appeared that all of the staff really enjoyed their job too.

    Inverness Station is so central, close to all the shops, bars and restaurants abd within a 5 minute walk to the bus Station too.

    We arrived on Wednesday via train, but too early to check-in at our hotel, so we used their left luggage lockers.

    You now buy a ticket from the ticket office, £5.00 a day, which is excellent value.
    The left luggage assistant, allocates you a locker and the bonus now, you can come back as many times (no extra cost ), as you want to leave more stuff, if you have been out shopping.

    Myself and my little sister, from the western isles, as well as our sister in law came to visit Loch Ness alpacas this morning. We couldn’t have had a better experience! Having never seen alpacas before, Fiona our guide was fantastic at explaining everything about them, as well as the individual alpacas needs. My younger sister hasnt stopped talking about it all day! We had an absolutely fantastic time and will not hesitate to book again!

    The end of our self-guided walking tour, we found ourselves in the grounds multiple times walking between the tombstones and looking for the "door to nowhere" (which we FINALLY found on the bell tower). A great spot to see the River Ness and a spot I searched out to allow my kids to play on the grass, but quickly learned that wouldn't be possible with the steep incline.

    The best view is from the opposite river bank as even when you walk up to it is boarded up and being renovated so you can't get a view of it or anywhere else in the city.

    Overlooking the River Ness on Huntly Street, this is a lovely building. From the outsidfe, it is easy to miss as there is no striking tower or spire and it almost seems to merge into the surrounding building.

    The inside is a complete contrast and is breath taking with is white walls, midnight blue ceiling with hanging bosses and chandeliers.

    The stunning altar, reredos, pulpit and Stations of the Cross were the work of local architect who was responsible for enlarging the church at the end of the C19th and remodelled the sancturay area, under the guidance of Peter Paul Pugin, son of his more famous father, Augustus.

    The stained glass windows are modern and mark the Millennium and Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.

    Next time, don'twalk past, stop and have a look inside!

    These grounds were breathtaking to take in and so full of history.
    Erik was so kind to drop his activities and treat us with a wonderful and informative tour. We had simply the best time learning about the Fraser Lovat’s, the history of the central highlands and was treated to climbing the bell tower and ringing the mausoleum bell. It was brilliant and we cannot fault Erik - he was generous with his time and really gripped us with his story telling abilities and wealth of knowledge. We genuinely had a wonderful experience. Thank you Erik!!

    Here's just some of the pictures that battlefield select tour's took us on a trip to the menin gate August 2019 it was a great fantastic trip run by battlefield select tour's Inverness and the overnight accommodation from hull to Zeebrugge was fantastic with excellent views of the sun setting from Zeebrugge to hull coming bk pictured, the overnight ferry from hull to Zeebrugge was an absolute pleasure and delightful DB&B and vice versa coming home. I'd recommend battlefield select tour's Inverness for ANYONE doing group bookings for battlefield tour's as you've got this tour guide 24/7 on the bus with a microphone telling you about how things are going ahead for the tour with a luxury coach. Toilet on board.
