Great for an evening walk

Great walk along the banks in the evening, especially just before and after sunset. The city lights reflecting into the river after sunset are very nice to behold.

The River Ness runs through the centre of Inverness. There are riverside walks down both sides of the river which means you can walk along and enjoy the beauty and location. There are small bridges across the river which allow you to tailor your walk depending on your own abilities.

In Inverness we are lucky enough to have a river running through our city. It is a love ly walk along the river . You can walk through the Ness Islands which is another lovely area to the other side of the river. It can be enjoyed by all ages.

The River Ness is a wide, attractive (and short) river in the center of Inverness. Our hotel was situated on the river and we enjoyed watching it from our window. One morning there was a fisherman walking along in the river, casting. There are two attractive bridges across the river between Greig street and the other side of the river:... More

Allow a couple of hours to walk along the River Ness in Inverness. There are several bridges which will take you across the river leading you back towards the centre of Inverness and there are some different perspectives of the Castle to be seen from across the river which photograph well. Eden Court Theatre is also along part of this... More

A short river as rivers go. Only about 20 KM long. This joins the Loch(Lake) Ness to the sea. Its is conjectured that this is the link which perhaps makes it possible for a very large prehistoric monster to enter the Loch Ness and breed ? The bridge over this river which bisects Inverness town is so pretty and we... More

There are beautiful paths along the River Ness with old churches and buildings on both sides and a nice pedestrian bridge to cross over.

Took a trip down the Caledonian canal and out onto Loch Ness. The kids really enjoyed the commentary on board the boat and liked going through the locks. They were a little disappointed not to see Nessie :-)
