Inverness Burghs was a district of burghs constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of Great Britain from 1708 to 1801 and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 to 1918. Its Member of Parliament represented the parliamentary burghs of Inverness, Fortrose, Forres and Nairn.
There was also, 1708 to 1918, the Inverness-shire constituency, which was, as its name implies, a county constituency.
In 1918, the component burghs of Inverness Burghs were merged into three different county constituencies: Inverness into the Inverness constituency, Forres and Nairn into the Moray and Nairn constituency and Fortrose into the Ross and Cromarty constituency.
