We are delighted that one of The Highland Council in-house buses will be providing a shuttle service for Inverness Highland Games from 10am to 6pm (all day). The service will be provided by one bus.

Update: Due to ongoing construction on Ardross Street impacting bus accessibility, the Inverness Highland Games Shuttle Bus service has been relocated. It will now operate from the front of the Highland Council Headquarters Building on Glenurquhart Road to Bught Park. The shuttle service runs from 10am to 6pm and remains free of charge. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time.

Pay and Display parking is available at the rear car park at the Council HQ

At the Highland Games Ceilidh Event we will be installing a taxi drop off/collection point within the car park area at Bught Park.

This will make it easier for our Evening Guests to arrange a safe drop off/collection point with their designated taxi provider.
