Finally, it feels like there is room to breathe in Inverness once more and with COVID on the retreat and restrictions easing to allow Live events, we can poke our wee heads out of the blanket and have a good swatch at the good things to do in Inverness in July.
So, if you fancy getting out and about in a responsible manner with Inverness Taxis, here are some of the best events in Inverness during July:
The Clay Studio Summer Programme
Monday, June 28th – Aug 13th
The Clay Studio has announced their Summer Programme for the ‘Summer of Hope’, as they are calling it!
This is a Free 5-day event for children & young people to attend, featuring a really exciting and rich schedule delivering a mix of gardening skills, hands-on music, art, Circus Skills, Special FX makeup, bushcraft and more great things to do with kids in Inverness.

July 1st – 30th September
Under Canvas is back! Eden Court’s outdoor summer-long festival returns with 3 months of live music, performance, kids events, and DJ sets on their front lawn. There will be a bar serving pizzas, local beers, spirits, and we hear there may be a cheeky cocktail or two on the go too!
You’ll need to book tickets for all events due to that dastardly COVID-19 and be aware that tickets are £5 a pop when booking, but you’ll have that deposit discounted from your bill before you leave!

Capers in Cannich continues this month and has dates right the way through to September!
Given the crown as the “First Live Music Festival After Lockdown”, Capers in Cannich is an exclusive outdoor glamping festival northwest of Inverness, with live music, a fully licensed bar and a pop-up restaurant.
The experience is all about being able to relax, catch up with a small bubble of friends or family whilst observing guidelines, enjoying great food, a few drinks and enjoying the live entertainment.
Enjoy LIVE music, great local food, hang out with the animals on the farm, and even fit in a wee bit of yoga to blow away the excesses of the night before jigging to the great bands throughout the weekend.
The lineups for the July dates look like this:
9th July – 12th July
Tom McGuire & The Brassholes | Talisk | Wrest | Cameron Barnes | Connor Fyfe | Totally Tina | Ciaran Cooney | Forgetting the Future | Longstay
23rd – 26th July
Shooglenifty | Bombskare | Rant | Abigail Pryde | Calum Jones | Mayah Herlihy | John Rush | Cala
There are 2- and 3-day glamping tickets available as well as day tickets for those not looking to stay over in one of their fabulous bell tents.
