Cruises for you to Invergordon Inverness

Although it’s the most popular cruise ship port of call in Scotland, Invergordon might look somewhat bleak as you pull as much as the dock. Its main industry is repairing oil rigs, which are towed into Cromarty Firth, so there’s little glamour to the waterfront. But the town’s natural deep harbor (carved by glaciers) helps it be the best cruise portal to the Highlands. Visit for travsel info about Inverness

Once ashore, you’ll probably go out to see the Loch Ness monster, Culloden Battlefield, the town of Inverness, a castle or even a whisky distillery.

Because most visitors scurry off to the heather-covered Highlands, this town around 4,000 is less touristy than you may expect, and it owns a homespun charm. Whenever we visited on our Windstar cruise, a handwritten sign greeted us at the little tourism kiosk: “Welcome Wind Surf! 100% guaranteed sighting of Nessie tomorrow!”

Take a short enter the town center and you will find impressive murals, overflowing flowerboxes, small shops, cafes, banks — and friendly people happy to really have a wee chat. Don’t forgo a shore excursion to hold out there, but if you have an additional hour approximately, you can have a nice time seeing the murals and poking around High Street.

Town seems thoroughly genuine and blissfully short on jaded tourist glitz. One of the finest memories of our cruise had been played off during our sailaway by an 18-member high school drum and bagpipe corps entirely Scottish regalia. Their haunting music carried out over the waters even as we sailed off through the firth. Visit for more information about inverness boat and cruise tours.
