Our top pick of Autumn events – Inverness


It’s starting to feel rather autumnal in Inverness as the golden leaves scatter the pavement and temperatures begin to cool a little. We love this time of year, as it gives us an excuse to cosy up with loved ones after a day of adventuring, wrapped up in our scarves and mittens.

The October holidays are approaching and Ardconnel Court apartments are really popular with families who look for an autumn getaway. Our city centre location is handy for exploring and there are certainly lots of things to see and do as well as seasonal events going on.

Here’s a brief selection of worthwhile events we’ve got noted down but when you visit, our team will be happy to give you more personalised recommendations to suit.
