Live Inverness • Fuirichan inbhir nis
Fresh air, an uncrowded and clean environment, healthy living, quality housing and a sense of community all make Inverness and the Highlands the place to be so why not slow down to the less pressurised pace and high quality of Highland life.
Residents of Inverness realise that the city offers an unrivalled quality of life. Inverness provides a pleasant and safe environment in which to live, a varied cultural life and first rate educational opportunities. We are proud that our unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the country and that pollution is the lowest of any city in Britain. It is free from the congestion that troubles many cities and the standard of service is high. We believe Inverness to be one of the cleanest and most scenic city environments to be found anywhere in Europe. Don't just take our word for it - a recent study by estate agents Savill's saw Inverness ranked 5th out of 189 British cities for it's quality of life!
We also work in partnership with national disability organisation DisabledGo to produce detailed accessibility information to over 1,000 public venues, services and open spaces across Inverness. If you are looking for accessibility information for restaurants, hotels, café’s, leisure centres, libraries, tourist attractions, shops and many more the DisabledGo resource has you covered.
And there's not just a great city environment - as "the City in the Highlands" Inverness also offers easy access to the coast, lochs, mountains and glens that help make the Highlands the most dramatic and scenic part of the United Kingdom.
