Hilton is a village of Inverness-shire which, with the rapid expansion on the City of Inverness, has become a barely distinguishable part of that city. Hilton is about a mile south of the city centre. A large amount of council housing was built here during the post-war era of the 20th century. As implied by the name, it is on a slight elevation between the River Ness and the valley of the Mill Burn.
