Invergordon is a small town of 5-6000 people on the east coast of the Highlands of Scotland. It is situated in the Cromarty Firth which is visited by large cruise liners, and used to be home to a large Naval base.
The Scottish Gaelic name for the Highlands is A’ Ghàidhealtachd, which literally means “the place of the Gaels”. The area is very sparsely populated, with many mountain ranges dominating the region, and includes the highest mountain in the British Isles, Ben Nevis.
Before the 19th century the Highlands was home to a much larger population, but due to a combination of factors including the outlawing of the traditional Highland way of life following the Jacobite Rising of 1745, the infamous Highland Clearances, and mass migration to urban areas during the Industrial Revolution, the area is now one of the most sparsely populated in Europe.
