Travellers to Scotland invariably land-up in Edinburgh and think that they have seen Scotland. Real Scotland is far away from there - you need to drive north west of Glasgow to Oban via Loch Lomond, then to Fort William and finally Inverness via Invergarry and Urquhart castle.

A boat tour is a must, it was the best thing I have ever spent my money on and we had very good weather too, the scenery is absolutely enchanting.

A pleasant way to see the city day or night, just beware of the midges! There are a number of pedestrian bridge to cross at various points so you can make your walk as long or as short as you want. Many photo opportunities to be had.

It's a river, it's got a monster, what more can I say? Joking apart it's a beautiful spot, you just need to be selective about where you stop and choose to view it to avoid crowds.

The views along the river are amazing. Perfect for walking or cycling along the river. Water is very clean too and not too deep.

If you stay in Inverness it's definitely worth doing a walk along the Ness River and into the Ness Islands. It feels like an enchanted forest, especially if you go when it is starting to get towards twilight. You also get a nice view of the city of Inverness which looks nice when the lights start to come on.

Great walking paths along the river Ness with views of Inverness Castle and city centre. Stop for coffee or lunch or visit one of the galleries.
