the story for the design


Inverness is a Scottish town known as the capital of the Highlands, and is the northernmost city in the country, lying within the Great Glen where the River Ness enters the Moray Firth.

By the 6th century, a settlement was established here and the first royal charter was granted by King David I in the 12th century. The Gaelic king MacBeth, nicknamed An Rígh Dearg (The Red King), also held a castle within the city where he ruled over the regions of Moray and Ross.

Today Inverness is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, rating in the top 5 of almost 200 UK cities for quality of life, and also boasts the main campus for the popular University of the Highland & Islands.
