The word is out, and Inverness, the heart of the Highlands, has officially clinched the title of the ‘Most Picturesque Holiday Destination in all of Scotland’. Move over, St. Andrew’s, because Inverness is taking the spotlight!
Inverness Named Best in Scotland
This exciting revelation that comes straight from the folks at House of Bruar, those luxury-loving connoisseurs of all things Scottish. They’ve done some digging and analysed the ‘beauty quotient’ of Scotland’s landscape, using the magic of social media. Yes, we’re talking about Instagram. Where hashtags tell stories of stunning Scottish castles, quaint villages, stunning nature reserves and the most picturesque places in Scotland.
Inverness emerged as the star of the show, accumulating a staggering 729,959 hashtags that vouch for its charm. We’re not the least bit surprised. If you’ve ever wandered through the historic Culloden Battlefield or marvelled at the grandeur of Urquhart Castle, you’d understand why Inverness has captured the hearts of travellers near and far.
It’s not just us who are head over heels for this vibrant city. Renowned travel guru Time Out ranked Inverness as the 3rd best city break in the UK for 2023. And they’re right on the money. With its rich history and captivating attractions, it’s no wonder Inverness is the Most Picturesque in Scotland.
