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.

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.

    Last two days of Gift Your Gear for this Spring Summer, last chance to donate and receive 15% off our wonderful gear.

  2. Rohan Inverness says:

    Gift Your Gear is continuing apace, we have now collected around 300 pieces. There is still over a week to go to donate some kit and get 15% off the new SS 15 range. Have a rummage through your wardrobe and see what you can find.

  3. Rohan Inverness says:

    The new 2015 Pampas jacket has arrived in store and is making a fuss already. Based on a 1973 prototype the fabric is our legendary blend of Poly/Cotton that we use on the Bags trousers, so we already know how good it is. Functional and stylish, it is fast becoming a staff favourite.

  4. Rohan Inverness says:

    Gift Your Gear has started in earnest in the Highlands with donations rolling in already of fleece, trousers, shirts etc. With some happy customers offloading things they no longer like or don’t fit, and leaving with some excellent new season products, like the updated fabric Windshadow jacket and the new women’s linen shirt, the Malay. Read all about the scheme here at Rohantime.

  5. Rohan Inverness says:

    Winter’s End promo, is nearly at an end! Finishes Sunday, With the days now cold, sunny with occasional snow showers, this is the best time to pick up some warm Winter gear at 40% off.

  6. Rohan Inverness says:

    With snow still falling, how’s about a wee promotion on some warm Winter stock. Winter’s End promotion starts today, with 40% off some great Winter gear. Mens and ladies Nightfall and Icepack jackets, Icepack vests. 40% off mens Winter Bags and Winter Route trousers.

  7. Rohan Inverness says:

    We’ve just had a delivery of new mens ECCO shoes and sandals, and we have more new season stock arrving next week as well.

  8. Rohan Inverness says:

    The continued arrival of our Spring Summer collection has seen the Sentry trousers and shirts drop into the store. Both have a nod to fashion but are filled with our technologies, Especially our Biteguard anti insect protection. Meaning you can go out in the evening abroad or on the West coast of Scotland without having to look like David Attenbourgh, and not get eaten alive.

  9. Rohan Inverness says:

    It never rains but it snows… Winter is not over yet, by a long shot. Just as well we still have great stock of down filled coats and jackets, warm, fleece lined, wind resistant jackets. As well as a range of insulated jackets and tops. Good old Rohan, covering every base. Oh and we have lots of new Summer stock in store, for all you travellers out there.

  10. Rohan Inverness says:

    Get them while their hot! Final reductions started today and is on until Sunday. A final 20% off all remaining sale stock, some major bargains. Many items less than half price.

  11. Rohan Inverness says:

    100mph winds and driving rain, just as well further reductions start today then. 50% off Countrywide and Escapist waterproof jackets for men, and 50% off Countrywide and Pinnacle waterproof jackets for women. Good timing eh! Plus some items reduced to 60 or 70% off.

  12. Rohan Inverness says:

    A chilly start today, 1 degree, and a frost on the ground in Strahspey. This morning i reached for my Insuloft garment to keep away the cold, and i’ll need it again on the way home tonight, i’m sure. Icepack jackets, and vest’s, lightweight, packable but superbly warm and cosy. Just what is needed. Plus the ladies get the full length Cocoon coat for extra warmth.

  13. Rohan Inverness says:

    With the Royal National Mod ending this weekend, you might think it quietens down in Inverness, but not at all. Our Mid Season sale is well underway and going on until the 26th, so you have another week to pick up a bargain before the worst Winter in 100 years arrives…apparently!

  14. Rohan Inverness says:

    It is a busy time up in Inverness at the moment, what with the 122nd Royal National Mod on from the 10th to the 18th. It is the largest and most high profile Scottish Gaelic Cultural Festival, with competitions throughout the week in solo and Choral events, Literature, Highland Dancing, Drama, and Piping. Visitors from across the globe attend and can enjoy the fringe festival of ceilidhs, concerts, open stages, street theatre, Highland cuisine and Shinty/hurling matches. If you have time, try to pop in and see us, and we will show you how to survive the Highland weather wearing Rohan.

  15. Rohan Inverness says:

    Last weekend to Gift Your Gear, and to top it off we have new season colours of stock arriving daily. New colours of Stria Polo and Top as well as Microgids for the ladies. New colours of Sentinel and Worldview shirts, Microgrids and Radiant Rollnecks arriving for men.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
