Welcome to Inverness

teclan is based in the city of Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands of Scotland. We’re within walking distance of the city centre and the scenic River Ness, and there are plenty of lunch options near the office. If you stick your head far enough out of the office window, you can see a mountain!

Inverness is one of Europe’s fastest growing cities with good shopping and a lively pub and restaurant scene, but still retains the feel of a small town with a population still under 60,000. There are rail and air transport links with the UK and Europe and it is the starting point for the very popular North Coast 500 scenic route – “Scotland’s Route 66”. There are plenty further outdoor experiences on the doorstep, including the Caledonian Canal, the Cairngorms National Park and the world-renowned Loch Ness – complete with a slightly shy monster.

In January 2021 the Highlands & Islands region was rated top on the Bank of Scotland’s Happiness Index, with the highest figure recorded to date. And that’s where you will find Inverness!
