A Day in Inverness - Perfect 24 Hours Guide
Inverness is a lovely city in Scotland and is usually occupied by tourists who wish to carry day-trips to explore nearby points of interest.

How to spend 1 day in Inverness?
Start off your 24 hours in Inverness early morning by visiting Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. First started in 1881, this museum is the right place to visit if you wish to get an insight into Inverness' history and traditions. Since the museum also has a cafe, you may enjoy a light breakfast here. Then make your way towards Inverness Castle. This is a structure built way back in 1836. Since it is not open for public, you will have to be satisfied admiring the castle from outside. You may, however, access the castle grounds and the north tower. Then make a quick stop at Castle Gallery. Here you will get to see local talent through a wide range of exhibits including paintings, ceramics, glasswork, jewelry, and sculpture.
In the afternoon, find a fine restaurant by the River Ness to enjoy a delicious Scottish lunch. After a filling lunch, you may leisurely stroll along the leafy pathways that are wound along the tranquil Ness river. Walking along the paths, arrive at Inverness Cathedral. Set by the banks of the river, this lovely church was built in between 1866-1869. Constructed using red Tarradale stone, the cathedral makes for a spectacular sight to behold. Next, make your way towards Inverness Botanic Garden. This green oasis was opened in 1993 and is an abode of numerous species of plants, a carp pond, a tropical house, manicured gardens, waterfalls, and a cafe.
Then it is time to visit an interesting attraction in Inverness named ShipSpace. This is a museum housing 1:10 scale models of many ships including the Titanic. Besides, you will also see scale models of fishing boats, lifeboats, and trawlers. What more, all these models are created by a single man! Towards the end of the day, make a beeline for Merkinch Local Nature Reserve. This nature preserve on Beauly Firth is a paradise for bird watchers. Strolling along the pathway, you will be able to spot numerous birds like herons and oystercatchers. If it is your lucky day, you may also see a dolphin, deer, otter, or a seal.
