Nairn in Northern Scotland is a lovely small town that is only 16 miles to the east of Inverness. So since you are so close, why not spend a day in Inverness and see how the ‘capital’ of the Highlands presents itself? There are some fantastic beaches in Nairn and the water is just so clean: it is best to go swimming in the summer, though because otherwise, it may be a little cold. Nairn also enjoys a reputation as being a real centre of excellence when it comes to golf. Great news if you are keen on golf. There is even a dolphin colony in the sea near to Nairn and dolphins too like to pop in to see the town, so keep your eye out for them.
The battle site for the Battle of Culloden is only about 12 miles away, so you can see for yourself where Bonnie Prince Charlie lost to the Hanoverians. Hotel rooms in Nairn are all book-able through EasyToBook.com, which leaves you time to think about how you will greet a dolphin if you see one.
