There is so much happening in Inverness and the Highlands that it can be difficult to decide just what to do and where to go. To help you with this we have developed the Inverglen Guest House Calander of events which highlight some of the best events happening in and around Inverness during the year. Just click on the event to find out more information. Certain events, especially The Loch Ness Marathon and The Inverness Highland Games do attract many visitors and early booking of your Inverness accommodation is essential.

Inverness Farmers’ Market is held on the first Saturday of every month at the Eastgate Shopping Centre. This is just a five-minute walk from Inverglen Guest House.

Just click on the event name to go to the appropriate website.
