Great Britain - Inverness & the Northern Highlands & Islands (PDF Chapter)
This is the Inverness & the Northern Highlands & Islands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Great Britain guidebook.
Scotland’s vast and melancholy soul is here, in an epic landscape whose stark beauty im-prints the hearts of those who journey through it. Mist, peat, rock, heather…and long, sunblessed summer evenings that repay the occasional days of horizontal rain.
