Due to its long coastline, plentiful rivers and large inland lakes, the people of Scotland have long been involved in fishing and ship building. Today there are still quite a few fishing hamlets as well as many large cities which have evolved from their prominent positions by strategically important waterways.
Though there are many small villages and towns in the Scottish Highlands, there is only one city - Inverness. This city is situated in North-East Scotland at the mouth of the River Ness from which the city derives its name. This city is quite old and has many attractions and - being the only city in the Highlands - it is a great starting point.
