The City of Inverness, the Highland capital, continues to experience growth in industry, commerce and tourism and the port has expanded its facilities and services to capitalise on opportunities in the renewables industry and the small cruise ship market as well as continuing to grow its commercial activities.

Ships have been calling at Inverness for many centuries. The port’s historic records go all the way back to 1249.

Today, the City of Inverness maintains its position as one of the fastest growing, dynamic cities in Europe, and the modern port is an important economic hub, with a busy marina, a thriving harbour and a wide range of facilities and services that make it attractive to greater numbers of large cargo ships every year. Recent improvements to its infrastructure have increased its attractions to cargo and cruise shipping.

The port is currently investigating the renewables industry for trade and freight opportunities.
