Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Inverness

If you want a good starting point to touring Inverness and the Highlands, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery are the experts on local culture and history. Here you can learn about the local geology, wildlife, archaeology and history of this region. The art gallery also features fine art and crafts from local artists in a spacious gallery. Only a fraction of their collection is on display, so if there’s something particular you’re interested in, just ask!

The museum delves into the history of the Picts, the tribal people of this area of Scotland in the Early Middle Ages. See the display of Pictish stones, the beautiful and mysterious carved stones that they left behind. More recent history of the Highlands includes Jacobite memorabilia and historic Stuart portraits donated by the last of the Maharajas. While you’re there, you can even try on an old-fashioned kilt or chain mail for size!

Inverness Museum and Art Gallery is close to the tourist information office and the private Inverness Castle, which guards the mouth of the River Ness. When you’re done why not cross the River Ness and visit Ship Space or the Inverness Botanic Gardens?
