No trip is complete without a little retail therapy, and Inverness has lots of opportunities to grab a bargain or unique souvenir. From chique boutiques to vintage bookshops and riverside galleries, Inverness has a lot to offer tourists and residents.
Treat yourself to the ultimate shopping experience by adding a touch of pampering to your day. Hit the shops and then head to our hotel for a relaxing spa treatment in The Kingsclub, a few lengths of our swimming pool and a relaxing meal with friends. You might even want to skip the drive home and stay overnight, in which case you have the choice of 147 luxurious bedrooms all of which can add a touch of glamour to your shopping trip.
The compact nature of Inverness means that it’s very accessible, whether you’re walking or taking public transport. A wide range of shops await you in Inverness City Centre. The quaint old Victorian Market features several specialist shops and traditional merchants. Its colourful 19th century wrought iron covered arcade is an authentic slice of shopping history that offers an insight into how our high streets used to look.
Inverness High Street
The pedestrianised High Street is one of the best spots for shopping in Inverness. Many well-known retailers have stores here and the street also opens up for farmers markets and entertainers. The Eastgate Centre features many international brands under the one roof and is a great one stop shop if you need to get an outfit sorted for a special event. Adjacent to the Eastgate Centre is Falcon Square, which is a wonderful place to relax in a cafe, watch people go by and enjoy the different street entertainers who perform here all year round.
Inverness Retail and Business Park is just a couple of miles east of Inverness city centre. Featuring everything from pet stores to environmentally-friendly furniture, there’s plenty to suit the whole family. Not only are there 20 shops to choose from, but once your busy shopping day is done, there are several restaurants where you can have a drink and refuel. If you can’t find what you are looking for here, just to the west of Inverness you will find the Telford Retail Park with even more retail choices!
