Directions to our shop - Rohan Inverness is on Academy Street which is situated in the centre of what was the the traditional city centre. This was a triangle, bounded by High Street, Church Street and Academy Street. The city has a small compact centre that’s easy to walk around which makes shopping and exploring a dream. Large enough to have everything you need, small enough to be friendly and safe, historic enough to be beautiful.

The Old Town Rose Street Car Park is situated in the centre of Inverness within walking distance of the Inverness Bus Station, Railway Station, city centre and the shopping malls. The main Inverness railway station is almost directly opposite the Academy Street entrance to the the Victorian Market, home to a large number of small shops. Three trunk roads (the A9, A82 and A96) provide access to Aberdeen, Perth, Elgin, Wick, Thurso, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Inverness Evening Rohan Inverness

Local Knowledge - Welcome to Inverness (Inbhir Nis) gaelic meaning ‘mouth of the river’, regarded as the capital of and gateway to the Highlands and situated at the head of the Great Glen that runs from Fort William to Inverness. To the south and west lie the big hills in the heart of the Highlands, notably around Glen Affric, which lead to the road to the Isle of Skye and southwards to the Knoydart peninsula, only accessible by foot or boat. West of Inverness the roads head to the mountains of Assynt, Torridon, Loch Maree… the north-west Highlands burst forth with grandeur and beauty. Deep forests, tall cliffs, rugged peaks and rolling seas crash together in an epic landscape. The north coast: Tongue, Cape Wrath, is wild and unspoilt, and is still crofted today. ‘The Flow Country’ that covers much of Caithness and Sutherland is unique, stark, virtually uninhabited( home to much of the clearances) and a superb refuge for wildlife. From the hairpin bends of the ‘Pass of the Cattle’ over the mountains to Applecross to the dolphins at Channery Point off the Black Isle, the North Highlands offers so much to see and do.

South of Inverness lies the Cairngorms National Park, here the hills rise skyward again, containing three of the UK’s highest mountains. Arctic like plateau’s descend into glens of ancient Caledonian forest, one of the last strongholds of the Wildcat, Capercaillie and Red Squirrel. The Cairngorms  are home to the UK’s only wild herd of Reindeer, and are an adventure playground for many with both Summer and Winter sports on offer. A wild but vibrant area, it will suit holiday makers and thrill seekers alike.

Locally the area offers plenty to do, with a good range of historic sites such as Culloden battlefield and Cawdor castle, as well as Europe’s best preserved 18th-century fort at Fort George. The sport and activity choice is also wide-ranging and includes cruising on Loch Ness (Nessie, who knows) as well as hill walking, mountain biking, snowsports, climbing, golfing, shooting, canoeing and kayaking. Shopping for Scottish crafts, plus all the nightlife and the cultural programme of Scotland’s most northerly city, are just a few of the other options.

Inverness Night

Staff Recommendations – Inverness offers a wealth of cafes, bars and restaurants, a few of our favourites are The Mustard Seed on the river front, Aspendos on Queensgate, the Rocpool again on the waterfront to eat, to drink Johnny Foxes and Hootanannys offer excellent nights out.

Further afield, the Mountain CafeThe Old Bridge Inn and Pizzariach in Aviemore are superb places to eat and drink. Just outside Aviemore is the hidden gem that is the Potting Shed at Inschriach Nursery, have a coffee and astonishing homemade cakes while you watch the birds and Red Squirrels feeding. On the West coast visit theApplecross Inn for seafood, in Gairloch try the Old Inn, or the Barn at Sands caravan park. If your on Skye, the Isle Ornsay Hotel in Sleat, or theStein Inn at Waternish. If you are way up North the Kylesku Hotel is also renowed for it’s seafood. On Loch Ness itself, The Dores Inn at Dores, The Loch Ness Inn at Drumnadrochit, and the Bothy Pub in Fort Augustus.

    Easter weekend is upon us, in glorious sunshine as well. Our full Summer collection is now in, we have just added new wms Microgrid Zips and jkts, as well as short sleeved Sundown Tops. Gents, the Maroc linen suit has arrived along with new linen shorts and shirts.

  2. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Our top selling Summer mens shirt from last year has arrived in store. The Aura shirt at 110g is one of our lightest garments, i took it to Greece last Summer and it performed superbly. Quick hand wash in the morning, hung out on the balcony, it was dry an hour later in the sun. This year we have it in three colours. Question is, how many to get?

  3. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Last few days of Gift Your Gear this Spring. Have a check to see if you have any unwanted or used pieces of outddor gear, donate them instore, and get 15% off something new.

    • William Sutherland says:

      Iain, thank you for the replacement pair of Bags, received yesterday. That brings my pairs of Bags, in differing colours, back up to five (six including my Winter Bags!) Considering that this corrected the first problem I have had with Rohan gear in all the years I have owned Rohan, yours was a very good response and I’m really impressed. Best wishes.

      • Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

        Not a problem Iain, only glad we could sort it out for you. Hope we see you soon in the shop.

  4. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

Plus, just a note to remind everyone, we are into our final full week of Gift Your Gear, so if you have anything to donate, nows the time. Remember we’ll give you 15% off anything purchased.

  6. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    A9 Southbound a sea of Blue, Red and White this morning, as Inverness empties itself to Glasgow for the League Cup final. So in the interests of impartiality, GO CALEY THISTLE!

  7. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    To all those who partook in the Inverness half marathon today, well done, not a bad day for it, can still see some bedraggled runners passing by the shop.
    Was perfect weather for our new range of Rohan Buffs, keep the head warm and the moisture down.

  8. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Spring Summer 2014 launch in full swing, 15% off if you Gift Your Gear. All our new season garments and accessories are now avaiable in store. Pity it is snowing outside, but lets look forward to Summer anyway, and we have the gear to complement it.

  9. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    The Winters End promo continues, with our womens Icepack jacket the best seller so far. That means we still have stock of the other promo items available, time to pop for a bargain.

  10. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Cold and sunny in Inverness today, with the Spark Top our best seller last week, and already selling this week. It seems you agree with us, that lightweight insulation is perfect for this weather.
    Hold on for more snow coming through this week though, Winter is still in charge up North.

  11. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Snow is falling all around us… Lots of it as well with Scotlands Ski resorts reporting more snow than they’ve had in 10 years. Just as well we still have insulated jackets, vests and coats to help with the cold. We have some cosy high loft fleeces as well, plus new arrivals for Spring/Summer, whenever that is.

  12. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    New season stock arriving apace right now. Ladies, new Tourers, made from the famous AIRLIGHT fabric, the Meridian jacket, Coastline fleeces and new colours of Roamers and Crossover trousers are here. Gents, the new Spark Top, redesigned Trailblazers, and new colours of Escapist jacket and Microgrids are here.
    Next week sees even more arriving, time to pop in and check it all out.

  13. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    A couple of days into the further reductions and we still have good depth in certain bargain lines, many half price or less. Atlas jackets, Winter shadow jackets, Crossborder jackets, Mountain Guide jackets all 50% off or more in the case of the Winter shadow.

  14. Johan McDonald says:

    Thanks for the great service. My husband is thrilled with the windshadow jacket. Small and light but will cope with the rain when we’re in Vietnam and Cambodia for the next couple of weeks.

    • Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

      Not that we are remotely jealous, but enjoy Vietnam and Cambodia, and of course your Rohan kit.

  15. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Did you know it’s FREE PARKING in the council car parks on a Sunday in Inverness, what better day to save some money than parking for free, 3 mins from the shop in the Rose St car park.

  16. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Our 12% OFF all full priced items ends tomorrow night, so this is the last chance to grab some new season stock at a bargain.

  17. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    With our Sale now in full swing, it is nice to know we still have a great range of styles and sizes left in store.

  18. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Merry Christmas from all here in Inverness, we will see you all bright and early for the first day of sale on the 27th at 9am.

  19. Rohan Inverness says:

    As Winter still hasn’t reared it’s ugly head yet, you may find this hard too believe, but we have Spring Summer 2014 garments arriving in store, all ready for Christmas. Be the first to get your hands on the new colours of mens Progress Polo, Element T or ladies Stria Polo or Sanctuary shirt with our Biteguard technology.

  20. Rohan Inverness says:

    The thunder, lightning and high winds have dropped away, only to be replaced by sun and heavy snow showers. Ah Scotland. However you look at it, we have it all covered in store, with waterproofs, windproofs and warm insulated garments, and with Christmas just round the corner, maybe it’s time to treat the one you love. To help, we are staying open till 7pm every Thursday on the run up to Christmas.

  21. Rohan Inverness says:

    Last day of our Winter warmers promo, we will be here till 5.30, so come on in and grab yourself something snuggly to keep warm this Winter.

  22. Rohan Inverness says:

    St Andews day and our Christmas event tomorrow, aren’t Saturdays fun. Pop on in and grab yourself a chance to win a £50 Gift Voucher, and tuck into some goodies.

  23. Rohan Inverness says:

    This weekend sees our Christmas event which is on from 9.30 till 7pm. We will be gift wrapping your purchases, should you wish, plus there is the chance to sample a Mince Pie and some Mulled Wine, and thanks to our friends at Truffolicous the chance to get your teeth into some handmade truffles. Look forward to seeing you this Saturday.

  24. Rohan Inverness says:

    With snow touching down to lower levels this week isn’t it perfect that we have 20% off selected Winter warming clothing. Mens Backcountry shirts and Winter Route trousers, and ladies Cocoon jackets and Winter Crossover trousers. Pop on into the store and grab yourself some bargain warm clothing just as the temperatures drop away.

  25. Rohan Inverness says:

    The Christmas lights go on in Inverness tonight, which obviously means Christmas is not far behind. If you want any help with present ideas, pop into the store and chat to the staff, they will give you a few recommendations.

  26. Rohan Inverness says:

    With a cold Northwesterly wind biting across Inverness today my thoughts turn to my newly purchased Kombi Jacket, fleece and windproof liner combined in one and reversible, perfect for this time of year. Add to that the Winter Shadow windproof jacket and you have two great lightweight choices to keep warm this winter. Why not pop in and try one on, and see for yourself.

  27. Rohan Inverness says:

    The temperature has dropped at least 10 degrees in the last few days, with snow forecast over Scotlands mountains. Is this Winter starting to bite at last, well we don’t care, in store at Rohan we are all well kitted out for anything Winter can throw at us. Just pop on into the store and have a chat with the team and i’m sure they can sort you out.

    • Don’t need to pop in (yet). Just phoned to have a shirt layed aside for me to ‘pop in’ tomorrow.

      Ken

  28. Rohan Inverness says:

    Mid season sale is over half way through, sale ends on Sunday 27th, so just a few more days left to grab a bargain. Some lines are being discontinued, so they won’t be here after that, even more reason to pop on in.

  29. Rohan Inverness says:

    Mid season sale has kicked off here in Inverness, with up to 30% off some key lines.

  30. Rohan Inverness says:

    -2.5 this morning, snow on the hills and scraping the ice off the car, Winter is definitely back, time to put on that Icepack jacket or vest to keep off the chill. If you don’t have one, pop into the shop and try one on, you’ll be hooked.

  31. Rohan Inverness says:

    Inverness Street festival takes place from the 10th to the 12th around Inverness this week, with magician’s, street theatre and many other things going on. Drop on into the city and take a look.

  32. Iain@rohaninverness says:

    Changes are afoot, snow is forecast for the Scottish mountains by the end of the week, is this the arrival of winter at last. We are fully ready with our Autumn Winter range in store.

  33. Iain@rohaninverness says:

    Just returned from a couple of weeks in Greece, took my Jeans plus for travelling on the plane with, but ended up wearing them in the evening as well. perfect even in 25 degree evening temps, plus my wallet was secure behind the hidden rear zipped pocket. Come on in and check them out. Available for both men and women, in two colourways.
