Eden Court Theatre

Just across the River Ness from Macrae House is Eden Court Theatre including the old Bishop's Palace which is said to be haunted by the 'Green Lady'. The Theatre and cinema host events all year round.

Granted city status in 2001 for the Millennium by H.M. The Queen, Inverness is an ideal base from which to explore the Scottish Highlands.
If you are without a car, take a coach tour - there are different ones every day of the week during the summer. You can get as far as the Isle of Skye or ancient Orkney (and back!) in a day. There are also daily cruises to Loch Ness and boat trips to see the dolphins in the Moray Firth.

Around Inverness you can visit castles such as Cawdor, Brodie, Urquhart, Kilravock and Moniack.

Other historic places include Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, the Clava Cairns, Sueno's Stone, Beauly Priory, Dornoch cathedral, Hugh Miller's thatched cottage and Cromarty Courthouse.
