Facts About InvernessEdit
Inverness is the only city in the Scottish Highlands. It lies at the mouth of the River Ness as it flows into the Moray Firth in north-east Scotland. It is from this that the city derives its name; Inbhir Nis is Scots Gaelic for "mouth of the Nis". The river flows from nearby Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal connects Loch Ness, Loch Oich, and Loch Lochy. Loch Ness is the home of the famous Loch Ness Monster, commonly known as Nessie. The city is the administrative centre for Highland Council, and was formerly the county town of Inverness-shire. The name Inverness is given to the most extensive of the Lieutenancy areas of Scotland.
Buildings in Inverness include Inverness Castle and numerous churches, including St Andrew's Cathedral. However, the oldest church is the Old High Church, on St Michael's Mount by the riverside, a site perhaps used for worship since Celtic times. The castle was built on the site of a previous building in 1835 and is now a Sheriff Court; an older wooden castle was located further east in the 11th century, and may have been the basis for the castle in Shakespeare]]'s Macbeth. St Andrew's Cathedral has a curiously square-topped look to its spires, as funds ran out before they could be completed.
Islands in the River Ness, the Bught and the river banks form a pleasant series of walks, as do the forested hills of Craig Phadraig and Craig Dunain. The city is well served with shops, as it is the main shopping centre for an area of nearly 26,000 sq km.
Not many people know that The Proclaimers were discovered in Inverness, in the upstairs of the Market Bar, one of the city's best (and smallest) live music venues. One of its cinemas was also the first in the whole of the UK to have both digital sound and digital vision. Moreover, the beautiful Town House was the first building outside London to host a meeting of the UK Cabinet.
