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. Recently the North Coast 500 has exploded onto the radar, the route is over 500 miles long and starts and finishes in Inverness. Taking in stunning scenery, castles, beaches of Inverness, Western Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross and the Black Isle, it is now on many peoples bucket list.

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.
