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.

    Typical! All our down and insulated coats, jackets and vests arrive and now it’s scorchio in Inverness for the first time this Sprautumn (we’ve decided you can’t call it Summer this year so we’ve come up with a new season). However, not to worry, we still have lightweight shirts, shorts and tops for both men and women.

      Summer was lovely… you remember, back in April?

      But at least you know your order of downies is at least partly responsible for some decent sunshine at last!

  2. Rohan Inverness says:

    An excellent weekend was had at Moy Hall, at the Highland Field Sports Fair over the weekend, great to catch up with regulars and introduce ourselves to many new customers. It was a superb chance to showcase the Biteguard range and much of our new Autumn Winter 2015 range, which is arriving daily in store.

  3. Rohan Inverness says:

    This summer, the RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout takes place over the weekend of 7 – 9 August 2015
    We at Rohan are very proud to be the official sponsors of this event.
    To get you in the mood, we will have a RSPB volunteer in store this Saturday, they will also be on hand to inspire people to ‘Give Nature a Home’ and make their garden wildlife-friendly, by providing ideas and advice in-store which they can go away and try at home. They will also be able to find out more about the RSPB’s broader work, and support RSPB by becoming a member if they would like to do so.

  4. Rohan Inverness says:

    Further reductions on Summer sale have kicked in, with many items 50% off or less. Men’s Journal and District jackets both over 50% off, as is the ladies Meridian jacket. Going fast though.

  5. Rohan Inverness says:

    Snow, yes snow, and frost tonight in the Highlands. So forget the sale, we have new AW 15 stock in, to wrap up warm with. Check out the new Sentinel shirts, Hometown rugby tops and Spark Jackets for men. For the ladies, the new Merino knitted cardi’s, Pathway Cardi’s and Merino V neck’s. Last snow June the 7th, end of winter 14/15. New snow July 8th, beginning of winter 15/16, a month of summer, not bad.

  6. Iain@Rohan Inverness says:

    Sale in three days, and a heat wave… Men’s Goa’s are going on sale, I’m wearing mine today, just right in the heat, topped off with the poly cotton Fenland s/s shirt, just right. Ladies don’t worry Thai trs are also in sale and will be spot on in the heat, top that off with a Pinpoint s/s T or a Malay top and you’re good to go.

  7. Rohan Inverness says:

    The Jetstream appears stuck this year, and another week continues cold and showery, with temps around 13 degrees. Not what you’d expect for Summer, even in the Highlands. Never fear, we still carry the light but warm Microgrid fleece, zip neck and jacket, team it up with the Windshadow jacket and you have warmth, shower and wind protection with no bulk. Failing that our new Winter 15 stock is only a couple of weeks away…!

  8. Rohan Inverness says:

    Go Caley Jags!!
    Expecting a quiet day today in Inverness, as the A9 South was just one big line of traffic. I counted 40+ coaches, numerous mini buses and cars with flags, as Inverness empties to Hampden Park for the Scottish Cup Final. For the 4 or 5 of you remaining in the city we have 20% off Summer Essentials until Sunday the 7th June. T-shirts, S/S shirts and shorts.

  9. Rohan Inverness says:

    Changeable, is the best way to describe this May. Wet and cold, windy and cold, sunny and cold, well okay maybe not the cold bit. Not surprising then that our amazing Microgrid fleece for both men and women is our best seller this month. Keep warm in a fleece full of holes. Check them out in store.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
