How to Get to Inverness

Flights to Inverness

Inverness Airport is mainly a domestic airport with connections to major UK cities and a very limited number of international flights, currently only to Amsterdam. Stagecoach operates a regular service to Inverness city centre (about 15KM away). There is currently no rail service from the airport.

Trains to Inverness

The Caledonian Sleeper (Serco) and the Highland Chieftain (Virgin) connect Inverness and London. There are rail links to other major Scottish cities, including Edinburgh and Aberdeen, which are run by Scotrail (which is now operated by Abellio). Scotrail also operates a line to Wick/Thurso and another to Kyle of Lochalsh (for Skye). These routes benefit from some utterly spectacular scenery.

Scottish Citylink and National Express both run regular services to major destinations in the UK. Stagecoach Inverness connects Inverness with other Highland towns. The main bus station is in Inverness city centre.

How to Get Around Inverness

Inverness is a perfect size for exploring on foot. Although the city does not currently publicize itself as particularly cycle-friendly, the fact that the roads are relatively quiet makes cycling a safe option. Where bicycles do come into their own is for off-road cycling. They are a fantastic way to explore the Highland countryside. For those looking to get from A to B at a faster pace, road travel is the way to go. In addition to local bus services, there are many local companies run bus tours and plenty of options for those who wish to hire a car for independent travel.
