Carbon Neutral Activities & Wellbeing in our Cities – Inverness Areas of Natural Beauty
It’s hard to talk about the Scottish highlands without mentioning their world-famous areas of natural beauty. Guests of our Highland Apartments are within hiking distance of illustrious lakes, mystical mountains and more buttes than you can blow a bagpipe at – here are a few spots to prioritise during your stay.
Scotland’s most famous freshwater lake has yet to yield any long-necked monsters, but it can be considered monstrous in itself, with over 23 miles of water and depths of up to 650 feet. We recommend guests at our Highland Apartments take a boat tour (and bring a harpoon, just in case).
There are forests, and then there are forests. Glen Affric (a caledonian reserve near to Cannich) is just a 40-minute drive (or 1h 15 min bus ride) from our Highlands Apartments and may well redefine your understanding of the word, with over 30 miles of pinewoods, moorlands, mountains and wildlife (including golden eagles).
Isle of Skye
Strictly more of an isle than an ‘area’, a visit to this collection of archipelagos is likely to beat out any other spectacle this side of the equator. Travel by boat or shared transport across the coastline of peninsulas, lochs and mountains to the town of Portree, where a hub of harbourside pubs and boutiques awaits you.
The Inverness sustainable tourism strategy is centred on providing visitors to the city with the tools and information to make sustainable choices that allow for enjoyment and free spending, without preventable harm to the environment. This approach is apparent in the variety of transport options, cycle paths and, more recently, a carbon-neutral business improvement district (the first in the UK).
