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.

    Oh you lucky people!, from this Thursday, the 4th of Dec, and on the 11th, we will be opening until 6pm. Then on the 18th we will open till 6.30pm. Just enough time after work to pop in and stock up for Christmas.

  2. Rohan Inverness says:

    Last few days of Winter Warmers promo, finishes this Monday. A final great chance to pick up a bargain, just after pay day as well, what could be better.

  3. Rohan Inverness says:

    Inverness Christmas lights go on tonight, roads will be closed around the Town House from 5.30 till 6.30 for many festivities. Enjoy if you can make it, weather looks good.

  4. Rohan Inverness says:

    Winter Warmers 20% Off promo, kicks off today for 10 days. Icepack jkts, Nightfall Jkts, Cocoon Coats, Backcountry shirts, as well as Winter lined Jeans, Crossovers and Winter Routes, are all reduced.

  5. 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.

  6. Rohan Inverness says:

    Last couple of days of mid season sale, and with the weather veering towards the inclement in the Highlands, it’s good news that we still have a good range of waterproofs left in store.
    Men’s Atlas, Escapist and Mountain Leader jackets, ladies Atlas, Mountain Leader and Cascade, all those, plus we have all the layers needed to complete your winter ensemble.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  21. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Yesterday, Equator short sleeved shirt and Rangefinder shorts. Today, Stronghold trs, Element T, Wayfarer Long sleeved shirt and a Microgrid Zip neck. That’s Rohan for you, every eventuality covered for the great Scottish summer.

  22. Fiona@Rohan Inverness says:

    Suns out and about in the North, and were geared up for Summer. Mens and ladies lightweight sun protected shirts, tops and trousers. Ladies Sundown tops were a best seller last week, as were mens Equator shirts, we suggest sauntering in and trying them on to see why they sell so well.

    • 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.

  28. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

  30. 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!

  31. 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.

  32. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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.
