Great shop great prices (although the lady is tough!) Very helpful too

Great little antique shop with friendly and informative staff. Not a massive selection but some great little pieces. Managed to find an excellent 1920s brass door knocker, which I'm excited to put on our Aussie terrace house door. Will pop in again if we're ever back In Inverness.

Bookshops

Leakey's Bookshop

Church St, Inverness IV1 1EY, UK – 01463 239947

This bookshop is in such an incredible building and shocks you as soon as you work in just due to the sheer volume of books. They have books of every genre, and all of their books are in pristine condition. I bought myself 3 Charles Darwin books, all of which were in almost perfect condition. I would definitely return and encourage anyone in the area to visit!

Leakey's Bookshop is definitely an experience. I love the atmosphere in here. I would recommend Leakey's as a sightseeing spot and for buying prints or gifts. I wouldn't come here in search of some reading though, the prices are pretty high and most books are more interesting in their material value than their textual content. As an avid reader, I would definitely visit Leakey's again, but not in search of my next favourite book, but rather for that one piece of my gorgeous classics collection that is missing. I'm rating 3 stars because I was disappointed to leave having bought no books during my visit.

CLC Bookshops, Inverness

23 Castle St, Inverness IV2 3EP, UK – 01463 238876

A decent resource but books are laid out confusingly. Also prominently features books by some big names with questionable theological positions.

Waterstones

69, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness IV2 3PR, UK – 01463 233500

Staff knowledgeable, friendly and keen to help. Found good wild flower book and ordered 'baby' books.

Great bookstore. If you’re from the states, I would compare it to a small Barnes & Nobles.

Autosave Components

35H Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1UA, UK – 01463 713646

For more than twenty years I've been buying replacement parts, tools and service components from these guys. Friendly, professional and knowledge staff with a decent stock. Anything not on the shelves is usually available within a day or two at the most.

I recently had to take my van to a local Inverness garage for a new clutch ( the owner was a so called friend!). Having done the repair they then did something to my van which caused the engine management light to come on. My "Friend" told me it needed a new accelerator pedal ( which was working perfectly before the new clutch repair.) I then took the van to AutoSave in Inverness and the guys there rectified the problem, (a pipe/hose had not been reconnected properly). You learn by mistakes as I should have gone to AutoSave in the first place. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this garage for restoring my faith in honesty and decency. Great service.

Euro Car Parts, Inverness

B & C, Bridgepoint, Longman Dr, Inverness IV1 1SU, UK – 01463 227922

A huge stock of parts instantly available, or can be ordered up. Helpful staff. Be aware that reserving online and picking up in-store can often give significant price reductions.

Was really easy to order parts online and then go to the store and collect them the staff were very helpful and the part that was ordered for me was spot on all in all a good service I would recommend however that you order online rather than in the store because you get more discount that way

Highland Motor Parts Ltd

Units 3 & 4, Fresson Business Park, Stadium Road, Inverness IV1 1FG, UK – 01463 223700

The only place in town for car parts. All the staff fantastic. Obviously it's ran well. I would not go anywhere else.

Highland Motor Parts have become my ‘go to’ place to buy parts. Knowledgeable, friendly staff who go out of their way to help in sourcing unusual parts for my 27 year old van.

Arnold Clark Inverness Motorstore / Hyundai

47 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1UF, UK – 01463 649173

Cannot praise highly enough. Colin Monkhouse Edinburgh store went out of his way to find the car I wanted. Martin Mensah at Inverness handled the final sale with professionalism. I traded in my old car and was offered an excellent deal. I will be back Arnold Clark!

The car was delivered to motorstore inverness as arranged, very quick and easy process to go throu. Thanks to Jade

Arnold Clark Inverness Peugeot

36 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1UB, UK – 01463 649363

Great Branch, considering I'm not local to the area the service was exceptional. The gent that helped me (James) was brilliant and made everything quick and easy. Highly recommend.

Ask for James Stenhouse, who will guide you politely and calmly through the at times difficult process of purchasing a car. James stayed in touch by e-mail, advising and helping me make the right decision without at any time putting pressure or stress on me. I highly recommend James for these reasons.

Dingbro

1 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1LY, UK – 01463 236686

Great staff the only place i could a red bulb for focus in inverness saved the day .

Great place with helpful, cheerful staff and excellent service. Can't beat it!

Car Audio Equipment

Halfords

Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1SY, UK – 01463 223388

Was in store today looking for a car DVD player with a disabled client I support. I can’t thank the staff enough for their patience while my client was causing a bit of distraction, they took the time to explain how the products work. Definitely the best Halfords I have visited and would highly recommend again. Staff very polite and eager to help.

First class service. All the staff are great especially the guys in the cycle section. Their knowledge on bikes and servicing is absolutely superb. Need a new bike or a repair I'd defo recommend .

Harry Fairbairn BMW Inverness

32 Longman Rd, Inverness IV1 1RY, UK – 01463 236566

Great motorcycle department. Couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Good coffee too! 👍

Actually good fix of my car and at a reasonable price. Did have a 3week wait for the appointment and my car was off the road for this time. But would recommend.

Arnold Clark Inverness Volvo

34 Longman Rd, Inverness IV1 1RY, UK – 01463 649288

Arnold Clark Volvo, Inverness provided me with an excellent well rounded service from considering a new car purchase right the way through to delivery. Helpful, knowledgeable salesman (Russel) that was interested in finding the right car for me and not necessarily the most expensive either. I would highly recommend.

Great customer service, very friendly. Knowledgeable and helpful. Sell the best make of cars.

Car Dealers

Top Car

1 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1SY, UK – 01463 713880

Filling Stations

Shell

36 Old Perth Rd, Inverness IV2 3RH, UK – 01463 248993

Basic petrol station and small shop. Fuel is more expensive than nearby Tesco.

Just missing a full car wash, has hand washes

Esso

Longman Rd, Inverness IV1 1SD, UK – 01738 626332

For those who shop at Tescos and get vouchers points so you are able to get points from Esso as well to add to your Tescos points

Very easy access from the Longman road. It's also a Spar shop and sells Costa coffee. It access you Tesco Clubcard rewards card. Always fully stocked with basics including sandwiches coffee bread milk oil and even down to spare bulbs for the car. Always fly manned. Good disabled access all round from front door. Free cash machine outside.

Morrisons Petrol Station

1 Millburn Rd, Inverness IV2 3PX, UK – 01463 250260

Prices of fuel are amongst the lowest in this region. Clean and quick service, plus a great central location in Inverness is all that's needed. The main Morrions store is right across for a wider selection of food and grocery. Easy in and out access.

A number of pumps to choose from on the forecourt. Small but well stocked shop.

Fuel 24 Hour

BP

22-24 Longman Road Longman Industrial Estate, Inverness IV1 1RY, UK – 01463 230667

Great location, plenty of pumps and other parking for shopping. Clean store and not squashed together aisles. Great staff who were friendly and helpful, no long queues too. No problems at all as per usual at any BP Garage.

Great place to shop for M&S food stuff.

Asda Inverness Superstore

Sir Walter Scott Dr, Inverness IV2 6BZ, UK – 01463 880300

An Asda is an Asda, but this one has a family of ducks living in the car park. The upstairs cafe has a nice view, but the food isn't great and I wouldn't go back. The fresh food selection is nowhere near as good as Tesco or Morrisons. Sometimes I go just to see the ducks. Quack quack.

Not the biggest store for shopping, so limited for some goods, and hardly any fresh vegetable/salad produce in the evenings. Store always looks clean and tidy though.

Tesco Petrol Station

INSHES RETAIL PARK, MILTON OF INSHES, Inverness IV2 3TW, UK

Like all Tesco's petrol stations these days. It's a bit grubby and worn out (I used to work in one). Staff mainly really lovely though in this store. And get to know you. I enjoyed that when I worked in one.. getting to know the regulars. And getting the the banter with them. And most of the staff are like that in this here. Has a disabled loo but they tend to let everyone use it... As they should! Many disabilities being invisible and such. How do they know you're disabled? But have been in a Tesco petrol station before where they wouldn't allow me. As it had changed label from disabled toilet to staff toilet. But I was desperate and have medical issues. Here, however. Never had a problem accessing the toilet.

Convient if going onto A9 but sometimes very busy nice staff though

Motorcycle and Scooters

Road And Track Motorcycles

45 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1UF, UK – 07717 170737

North Coast 500 Moto Experience

10, 23 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1SY, UK – 01463 231212

Absolutely brilliant. Ron was excellent and accommodating from booking to arrival. The bikes are forgiving, but most importantly really reliable. Three very happy customers. I was biking with 2 Canadians, who said it was the best route they had ever ridden. Don't take it for granted!

We hired two bikes from Ron. Faultless from start to finish. Excellent bikes which were well suited to the type of riding you’ll do on the NC500. All the riding gear we were provided was of a high quality. Would recommend NC500 moto experience to anyone who is looking to do the NC500.

North Coast Customs

3 Carsegate Rd N, Inverness IV3 8DU, UK – 01463 233124

Helpful staff. Will be back again.

Fantastic range of bikes, very friendly and helpful would 'recommend a visit, great prices to.

Sam has been very helpful to my in-laws and has been very attentive to them. He is always friendly and concerned about them. It's reassuring for my wife and I to know that they are receiving such great support in the community.

Best pharmacy in Inverness. Sam is a true professional and a gentleman. He will truly go out of his way to help anyone, and will listen to all ideas and suggestions. My friend whom I have been helping for years is who I have been taking to the pharmacy and even though it means a bit of traveling, it is worth it. Seriously, don't take my word for it, go along and see for yourself.

Lochardil Pharmacy

There is a really big selection of items here across clothing and homeware. The prices are very reasonable and the space is big so that you don't feel pressured and harrassed when you are looking through the products. All staff that I have encountered here are helpful and friendly too.

Computer Consultants

Amber Computer Solutions

66 Cradlehall Park, Westhill, Inverness IV2 5DA, UK – 01463 794340

I have sought Ian's help on numerous occasions over the past few years and he has always sorted my problems out quickly and effectively. In addition my wife and I sought his advice when purchasing our current laptops and found that advice to be very sound. I have already recommended his services to others and would have no hesitation in doing so again. A first class service!

I would like to offer a review of Amber Computer Solutions. Ian Gillespie has twice now saved my bacon in relation to computer problems. On both occasions Ian came out, promptly, to our home and fixed the problem in just a few minutes, The first issue was that we could not use our printer. We needed to print something urgently and that was sorted in moments. The second issue was the need to print text messages for evidential purposes. Again, time was an issue. Ian quickly fixed that for us as well. I would recommend Ian to anyone. His charges are reasonable and he really knows how. Iain Martin

Crashed hard drive - disaster! People at Inv Computer Centre very helpful, replaced drive, very reasonable fee for the work. Kept informed of progress and very happy with outcome. I will certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone. I can tell you that this is a far superior service to the 'customer experience' you get at PC World!

Lovely yarn, lovely shop :)

Victorian Gift Shop

Market Arcade, 1 New Market, Inverness IV1 1PG, UK – 01463 233430

This shop is proven to be cheaper than anywhere else in Inverness. Especially those in the high street location near the Malls, It is sad that the tenants are decreasing. Really hope that this market can be rejuvenated as it contained much history in it.

Caledonian Gifts & Souvenirs

12A Church St, Inverness IV1 1EA, UK – 01463 710664

Nice little store. They have some really awesome souvenirs. Not just some standard postcards or fridge magnets, but so much more. It's too much to list it all here, but you should definitely pop in and see yourself.

Gifts and souvenirs is hands down the best place in all of the Scottish Highlands (the forests and lakes were not bad as well). They specialize in not only selling goods, renting bikes, and being friendly, but also in restoring friendships. We shall tell you a story of our stop in the little shop. She was tired and I was hungry, we were both grumpy and in serious need of a miracle to turn our rough patch of sleepy travel days into a lively adventure. And that's when it happened, we stumbled upon this shop while trying to find the tourist info center. We asked for directions for a bus to see Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. We were persuaded, despite our better judgement and general lack of confidence in our fitness ability, to instead rent bikes and go down the opposite side of the lake. We got snacks (they even provided a handy lock - that funnily looked just like a bike lock - to secure our food), water bottles and helmets (we needed them) and headed on our way. The bike ride was meant to be about 1.5 hours to a nearby town where we were going to have lunch. We 'accidentally' took a wrong turn (shady sign reading on someones part) ... long story short, we ended up biking for 5 hours, 2 of those spent climbing a mountain (see fitness ability comments above...), 99% of that time silently swearing, 60% of the time crying (on the inside), but much to our surprise, 100% of the time was filled with smiles and laughter. Maybe it was the fresh air, the adventure, the exercise, the giggles, or the snacks, who knows, but it ended up being the time of our lives. We left our grumpy and sleepy ways behind and came out with a stronger friendship than ever. Thanks Gifts and Souvenirs and those that work there that make it the coolest place ever. Love from Jasmin, Jessica, and Nigel (little porcelain haggis who is a former Scotsman, but is in the process of immigrating to Canada).

Crafts Shops

Hobbycraft Inverness

4, Inshes Retail Park, Inshes Rd, Inverness IV2 3TW, UK – 0330 026 1098

every time I visit inverness.. I'm guaranteed to pop into this store. they have great deals and are always offering new products for people with crafting skills. as any hobby craft would offer. it is perfectly situated in a business park with free parking & other stores close by.

Really good variety and quality. Amazing card craft gear.

The Works

24 High St, Inverness IV1 1JQ, UK – 01463 711628

Good place to find arts and crafts things you may have trouble finding elsewhere, but my God is it a tight squeeze in there. Aisles are tiny so if you find yourself getting stuck behind a pensioner who doesn't respond to excuse mes or some inconsiderate Mother who thinks it's a good idea to bring a pram into such a claustrophobic store, don't count on being able to get past them within 5 minutes.

A fine shop full of discounted books and arts n crafts. Well worth a visit.

Magpie Wool and Crafts

94a Old Edinburgh Rd, Inverness IV2 3HT, UK – 01463 223590

The vast majority of the shop is acrylic yarn, or 80% acrylic/20% wool mixes. With the exception of a basket of lovely Shetland Croft wool the rest seemed the quality you’d get at hobbycraft or B&M. I would have expected there to be a selection of local dyers work or blue faced Leicester or merino mixes. If you like knitting acrylic then this has a very wide selection for you to choose from.

I stopped in here for a gift while on holidays and the woman working was both helpful and polite. They had a huge selection of skeins and various other accoutrement for crafts. I would certainly recommend this store to anyone in the area.

Took bike in on Saturday with concerns over rear wheel. Shop was busy (always a good sign) but young lad, Robin, took time to examine bike, explained I needed new bearings, gave me options. Given the miles I do I decided to buy new set of wheels, which he fitted there and then between dealing efficiently with other customers. Price was excellent, service fantastic.

Had a problem with my bike this morning!!! went in to the shop spoke to the fantastic staff/technicians the guys were so helpful and fixed my bike. The lads deserve a pat on the back incredible customer service, I will definitely be back. Thanks again👍

on route to JOG my back wheel bust another spoke outside inverness. I was near giving up as this was the second broke spoke in 2 days. i took a taxi here, they lent me another good wheel to get me on my way and fixed my wheel for me to collect a few days later on my return south, fantastic service and nice people. many thanks for saving me.

What a great find. I arrived off the sleeper with a broken spoke and an adventure to be had. This was the third shop I visited and despite being busy they squeezed my repair in. Excellent workmanship, service and price. They ensured that my Highland weekend went ahead. Super grateful.

On arrival at the depot we once again saw Sean who was very polite, extremely professional and efficient. Can't recommend enough.

Good servicemen. Very helpful.

What a great store! Amazing selections of health foods and best of all the spice section. Normally paying about 90p for spice in a 50g jar which doesn’t go very far if you’re a fan of cooking. Grape Tree offer spices in 150g pots at £2 each! And best of all if you buy 2 you get 1 free! Will definitely be back.

Garden Centres

Simpsons

Culloden Rd, Inverness IV2 5BA, UK – 01463 250200

A tree we bought, died the next year but was replaced without quibble. This garden centre is the one we use most often in this area. Staff are very helpful. There’s a wide variety of plants available in their season, garden equipment and furniture, a “plant hospital” area we regularly take a punt on, a pets area and aquarium centre (I can’t comment about, except that it’s popular), a wonderful food hall and restaurant/cafeteria (we use regularly). There is a loyalty scheme in operation across the shop and cafeteria.

I love Simpsons Garden Centre! I was there yesterday and the plants are beautiful, as usual and they have everything you could possibly want for your garden but so much more. The plants are strong and I have never had a problem with anything I have bought. The food in the Restaurant is delicious and I love the Fairy Garden section. I also wanted to say a public thank you to 2 of the assistant's because I became quite ill and they were wonderful and looked after me until my husband arrived. They deserve a bonus because they were so kind and I wish I knew their names. Thank you so much. Wonderful plants, products and food and exceptional staff. What more could you want?!

Dobbies

Inshes Retail Park, Inverness IV2 3TW, UK – 01463 701770

Simpsons may be a better option now. It used to be best place for breakfast in Inverness and we'd always buy something in the shop when we were there. Went in today and they have put breakfast prices up by around 20% and reduced the choice. Who doesn't include lorne in a Scottish breakfast, unbelievable!

I attended with my partner today to find two staff members arguing within the public ear. Snr staff member attempted to resolve the issue and came back with someone to serve us but were totally ignored, 5 minutes waiting to get served and know body acknowledge we were there. Dissapointed, left feeling hungry and even more dissapointed about hearing staff arguing in public.ended up going to M'Donald's grrrr.

The outdoor gear on sale here is varied and overall very good, but the cafe certainly is the highlight. The chai latte is amazing and the cakes and food are great as well.

Not much assistans and items too high up to reach. Very limited watersport stuff and will probably have to shop online, as the rest of Inverness also very limited. Nice looking store and may be much better for other sports.

Captivating Photography

35 Ashwood Grove, Inverness IV2 6DE, UK – 07990 875110

Charné was very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Her attention to detail was first class and she immediately puts you at ease leading to a most enjoyable experience - Mary Swan, Owner - Driftwood House.

We were looking for a photographer for our wedding and came across Charne's website. We instantly loved her photos because they were so vibrant and colourful. Charne is true artist with her photography. Not only were we blown away by our photos, but the whole process was so professional from our initial enquiry all the way through to our wedding day. Charne met with us in a hotel to go over every detail and was meticulous in every aspect. We could not recommend her and praise her photography skills and professionalism highly enough. Furthermore she was excellent with our guests, gentle and kind and making sure we were all laughing and having a good time whilst having our photos taken. A truly captivating photography experience!

Macdonald Drumossie Hotel

Old Perth Rd, Inverness IV2 5BE, UK – 0344 879 9017

This is a true vision of Highland art deco styling. The period oozes through the house and gives everything that slight McIntosh feel. The food we had was acceptable without being exciting, it was a wedding after all. The drink prices were a little on the high side but captive audience. The sun room, gardens and view were magnificent and worth the trip alone

Here for a function. Bar not the cheapest so be prepared to part with a fair bit of cash if you're buying a round. Service could be a bit slow too. Nice function room though, great for a wedding or party.

Bogbain Farm

Inverness IV2 5BD, UK – 01463 772800

We went to Bogbain recently for our friend's wedding. A lovely venue, staff extremely attentive and welcoming. An excellent venue, so beautifully presented and excellent food. Staff couldn't do enough for the guests, I would highly recommend this venue for special occasions.

Been to this venue a few times now for a variety of different events, the most recent being the Inverness Whisky and Gin Festival. It is a good space for an event like this, offering plenty of space in a fairly rustic and 'farm-like' environment!! Watch for the cobbles though - ladies in heels struggle to walk over them!! Great bar too.

Popped in to pick up some wine for a weekend with friends, the tremendously helpful Majestic chap recommended a selection of new ones for us to try. All of them went down a treat, thanks for the assistance! Would definitely recommend the Hills & Harbour gin - really enjoyed by all, goes great with a lighter style of tonic.
