Constituency Profile

Geographically, at the centre of this seat is the River Spey, which supports vibrant salmon and whisky industries.

At the northern reaches of the constituency is the city of Inverness. Secondary parts of the off-shore oil industry are found around this northern hub. About 16 miles east of Inverness is the former fishing port and market town of Nairn which is home to two golf courses.

When the Scottish Parliament was created in 1999, Fergus Ewing, son of the famous SNP MP Winnie Ewing, won the seat for the nationalists. Mr Ewing regained the seat in 2003, in 2007 and again in 2011.
