Inverness, Scotland

So here I am in Inverness, the gateway to the Scottish Highlands. The weather is getting rough, so I hope I'll be able to travel around the Highlands safely. But for now I'm in Inerness, staying at a decent backpackers hostel.

Inverness is a lovely city, situated on the river Ness and obviously just by the famous lake Loch Ness. I'll spend the next few days in the area of Loch Ness and visit Fort Augustus. Inverness looks like a miniature of Edinburgh to me. Similar style of the buildings and nice athmosphere. You can barely feel that you are much more north. The Scottish accent is different from the Edinburgh accent though and as I've heard it gets softer as you go north.
