Invergarry (Scottish Gaelic: Inbhir Garadh) is a village in the Highlands of Scotland. It is in the Great Glen, near where the River Garry flows into Loch Oich.

Near the centre of the village is the junction between the A82 road (from Inverness to Fort William) and the A87 road which branches off to the west towards Skye.

The ruined Invergarry Castle is situated near the village on Creagan an Fhithich (the Raven's Rock), overlooking Loch Oich.
