Sightseeing Suggestions

Photo of Eden Court Theatre Events

Talisker overlooks Eden Court Theatre and cinema on the opposite bank of the River Ness. Eden Court organises events such as plays, opera, concerts, festivals and films throughout the year.

On warm summer's evenings you can sit out in the garden and enjoy the peace and tranquility of life on the water front.

The river is fished throughout the season and you can hear the swish of the rod as the fisherman casts his line in the hopes of catching the elusive salmon!

Castles & Day Tours

The city of Inverness is an excellent base for touring the Scottish Highlands whether you have a car or are travelling by bus/train.

During the summer there are frequent coach trips to many places such as Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle (pictured here), Brodie Castle and even the islands of Orkney.

Full details on local transport & day trips are given in The Internet Guide to Inverness.
