City of Inverness

Inverness is the only city in Scottish Highlands. With a population of over 50,000, it is situated at the mouth of the river Ness, as it flows into the Moray Firth in northeast Scotland.  In 1975, Inverness became part of the District of Inverness in the Highland Region. In 1996, the Inverness District ceased to exist when Highland came a unitary authority. Prior to 1975, Inverness was situated within the traditional county of Inverness-shire.
