Invergordon is a town which lies in Ross and Cromarty in Easter Ross in the Scottish Highlands. Farming is important to the area around Invergordon and whisky distilling. Not so long ago the industry that was very much associated with Invergordon was the aluminium smelter but it closed down in 1981. Nowadays heavy industry that had moved into the construction and later repair of oil rigs from Scotland’s oil and gas industries in the North Sea is building employment in renewables.
Invergordon is also a port that attracts cruise liners from across the world who flock there to explore the Highlands.
