Worldwide connections 

Inverness Campus is based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland – a globally connected region.

We have nine airports along with smaller airstrips. Air services from Inverness Airport, located just 8 miles from the Campus, operate to many of the UK’s biggest cities including London, Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol. Services flying to European destinations include Amsterdam and Dublin.  

We also have a comprehensive rail network including the iconic Caledonian Sleeper which is an overnight service between London Euston and Inverness/Fort William, which operates six evenings per week.

Major trunk roads connect the Highlands and Islands to the rest of Scotland as well as the UK, and we have a well connected bus service network operating across the country.

We've provided regional directions below.

Foot and Cycle

The Campus is designed for easy access by foot and accessible cycle paths.

A pedestrian and cycle bridge crossing the A9 links the Campus with the Centre for Health Science, Raigmore Hospital, LifeScan Scotland and on to Inverness city. It also joins into a network taking cyclists over the Kessock bridge to the Black Isle.

To the east, linking to Inverness Business and Retail Park, there are two pedestrian and cycle routes with bridges for safe travel across the railway. 

Within the Campus there are numerous routes signposted to explore the central parkland and enjoy safe cycling. Public cycle stands are available at the reception building and beside the lochans.

 

Hi Bike

E-bike hire and multimodal transport

The Hi-Bike scheme, launched in October 2021, enables people to hire Ebikes for short journeys around Inverness.  Currently there are bike stations located at the centre of the Campus by the lochans, Falcon Square by Inverness railway station and at Great Glen House, Leachkin. 

 HI-Bike offers a range of membership options, from pay per ride to monthly or yearly membership.  Shorter membership options include 30 minutes free riding before extra time fees kick in, and monthly and yearly membership gives 45 minutes free each ride.

To use the service, users can simply purchase a membership online or using the Hi-Bike mobile app. More information is available on the website: www.hi-bike.co.uk

A pioneering Mobility as a Service app has been launched by the Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS) to increase accessibility of integrated travel for residents and visitors in rural Scotland.  Further info here and download the GO-HI app on desktop or from the App store on IOS/Android.
