Invergordon received its name from Sir William Gordon, a local landowner of the early eighteenth century. For centuries the estate on which Invergordon now stands was known as Inverbreakie.  Invergordon is a deepwater port near the entrance of Cromarty Firth. Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is 30 minutes from Invergordon by road, and the home of the elusive Loch Ness monster is just a few miles further. The town of Invergordon is small and modern, with more allure than you might expect of a society that services the North Sea oil industry.
