Start your day with breakfast at Milk Bar. You’ll find milk bars throughout the United Kingdom, offering affordable, gourmet coffee and a small selection of food. Enjoy a flat white, cappuccino or other coffee beverage, plus a scone or breakfast pastry, for just a few pounds.
Since you’re already there, explore the Inverness Victorian Market, built in the late 1800s as the first covered market in the city. There are more than 40 locally owned shops with items you won’t find elsewhere.
Inverness Castle is just a short walk away, overlooking River Ness. The site has been home to several different castles, since as early as 1057. The current castle was built in 1836 and is still used for government offices today. As such, you can’t tour the interior, but you can pay £5 to climb to the lookout tower.
Grab lunch across the street at Castle Tavern. The quaint restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. Menu options include an array of Scottish favorites, including steak pie (£13) and battered haddock with fries (£13). Wash it all down with local ale.
Take a trip just outside the city for a visit to not only an important historic spot, but also an important spot for any Outlander fans.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite walking the grounds, grab a casual dinner at Platform 8, which serves up pub food and ale at a reasonable price. You’ll find a variety of choices, including pub classics, steaks, burgers and more. You can easily enjoy dinner for less than £10.
