People go to Inverness to experience the Scottish Highlands. The dramatic and wild countryside has to be seen to be believed but you must be sensible about how you go about seeing it.
Ill-prepared and inexperienced tourists often get lost or worse- find themselves in danger when caught out by a storm- when exploring the surrounding moors and mountains of Inverness. In this scenario, not only are you a danger to yourself but also the mountain rescue volunteers who must come to take you back to safety.
Mountain climbing and orienteering are not spur of the moment activities and the Scottish Highlands are, more often than not, for experienced outdoorspeople. If you are a beginner and do wish to explore around Inverness in this way- book a walking tour with a guide.
