House Removals Inverness
Inverness is one of Scotland’s seven cities and sits in the south of the Highlands, on the banks of the River Ness. Perched picturesquely above the river is Inverness Castle, and the town itself is lavishly decorated with flowers. Inverness is a thriving city, boasting a number of historic buildings than can be appreciated during a Saturday afternoon shopping trip.
Although a huge city, Inverness is very solitary – you will not come across anywhere of its size during hours of driving. 15 minutes in one direction and you are engulfed by the epic landscapes of the Highlands, and 15 minutes in the opposite direction you have the Cairgorms National Park.
