Inverness is a small city/big town surrounded by amazing Highlander scenery and sites. Inverness also is where Macbeth once ruled. It is, however, best known for its historic battle against the Loch Ness Monster. A little over thirty years ago some 3,000 brave Invernessians lost their lives in combat against that monster from hell. While Nessie has not been heard from since, many fear his return is a question of when, not if. They play the bagpipes here with one ear to the Loch.
