The Highlands, Inverness

Inverness, in the highlands is regarded as the capital of the Highlands of Scotland. A settlement was established by the 6th century with the first royal charter being granted by King David I in the 12th century. In 1562 Mary Queen of Scots was denied admittance into Inverness Castle by the governor, who belonged to the faction of George Gordon, 4th Earl of Hutley. With help from clan Fraser and Munro, Mary took back the castle and hanged the governor. The castle that stands on there today was built in 1835 on the site of its medieval predecessor.
