The village lies near the head of the Cromarty Firth on an arm of the North Sea, and is surrounded by mountains and gentle rolling farmland.
The unique features of Invergordon lie in the ability to dock several large liners simultaneously, whilst at the same time offering a very large number of different and exciting shore excursions which appeal to the passengers on board these liners.
Virtually every cruise line that calls at North European ports, calls at Invergordon at least once a year and frequently more often.
With easy access, deep water, shelter and only 5 miles from the open sea, Invergordon has already had liners such as Queen Mary 2 and Crown Princess dock to showcase the beautiful Highlands of Scotland.
Included in the attractions are Cawdor Castle, Dunrobin Castle, Brodie Castle, Loch Ness and its famous monster “Nessie”, Dornoch Cathedral, Inverewe Gardens, Fort George, Culloden Battlefield, Falls of Shin, Glenmorangie Distillery, Royal Dornoch Golf Course, The City of Inverness and many many more.
This part of Scotland is particularly suited to active pursuits with golfing, cycling, hill walking, mountain biking, nature spotting and adventure parks all well represented.
Invergordon itself is a small friendly village with a famous mural trail including 11 large coloured wall paintings representing life in the Highlands past and present.
