About Inverness

The capital of the Highlands and one of Europe’s fastest growing cities, Inverness is considered to be among the top five UK cities to live.

The city is popular for businesses for its modern infrastructure, and is a central player in the emerging Life Sciences and Technology sectors. Lifescan Scotland, one of the country’s largest Life Sciences employers, is based here. Inverness is also home to global companies such as Norbord Europe, Capgemini, Orion and the Global Energy Group.

Inverness Campus is a world-class environment for research and academia, offering innovative enterprises the chance to collaborate, incubate and accelerate. It also hosts several NHS medical research facilities, as well as University of the Highlands and Islands academic research units.

Its vibrant restaurant and bar scene plays a key role in local employment. Tourism flourishes, as the city’s rich tapestry of culture and history along with its proximity to Loch Ness and Cairngorms National Park draws around a million visitors each year.

Inverness is served by excellent road, rail and air connections. Inverness Airport offers flights between several domestic and international hubs including Heathrow, Gatwick, and Amsterdam. In a passenger vote, the airport was voted best in Scotland in 2018.
