Day trips from Inverness.

Hi all,
Kyle line train journey - can we get on/get off at stations and which would be a good stop?
Any other day trip suggestions from Inverness?
Sorry kept it short, hopefully sweet!
Thank you.

    The Scotrail website gives the two great suggestions of stopping off at Plockton and Attadale - see :

    Both locations are beautiful - Attadale with the lovely gardens, and Plockton really is a picture postcard pretty little village (see pic below). 

    As to other day trips from Inverness there are loads but some suggestions would be :

    1. Fort George - impressive military fortress with stunning views over the Moray Firth
    2. Cawdor Castle - castle with lovely gardens and of course links to the famous Scots King Macbeth (you may find out if you visit just how true the Shakespeare version of the story is!)
    3. Loch Ness - a bit of Nessie spotting, and of course you can take a cruise out on the Loch itself - very atmospheric place
    4. Culloden - site of the last battle to be fought on British soil. Again very atmospheric. 
    Hope that helps!

    I agree, Plockton is a great wee place with lots of palm trees!... I went there on my way back from Skye last week and I'm glad we made the detour (as you can see from the picture above)! Not as lucky with the weather though - cloudy but dry, that's the main thing!  :)
