History of Inverness 

Often labelled as the capital of the highlands, Inverness has a literally meaning equating to 'The Mouth of the River Ness'. It is an ancient settlement which, due to its idealic surroundings, has seen various inhabitants spanning thousands of years. Until the famous battle of Culloden in 1746, Inverness was home many royal residence's, remainents of which can be found dotted throughout the beautiful city and since the 1746 rebellian, further holdfasts and castles were built both within the city and in surrounding areas. 

Perhaps one of Inverness' most famous historical fact is that arguably one of Shakespeare's most prominant and well-known works, Macbeth, is said to have large links to the city. Set in 1040, Macbeth is supposed to have murdered King Duncan at his castle, which stood on the site of Auld Castlehill. Whilst no records remain of the 'Inverness Castle' reference throughout the play, Shakespeare was famed for using real life locations and events throughout his works and the fort that existed in the set time period was razed to the ground in the 11th century and been replaced several times throughout history.
