Inverness-shire

historic county of northern Scotland. It is Scotland's largest historic county and includes a section of the central Highlands, Glen Mor, and a portion of the Highlands to the north. It also encompasses several islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides, such as Skye, Harris (part of Lewis and Harris), North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist, Barra, and the Small Islands. Those of the Outer Hebrides (Harris, the Uists, Benbecula, and Barra) are part of the Western Isles council area, and the remainder of the county (including the Inner Hebrides and the entire mainland area) lies within the Highland council area.
