I visited the River Ness in July this year and was amazed by what it has to offer, beautiful views over the river towards the mountains, the city and the castle, with lovely hanging baskets on the bridges across the river in the city, I've visited Inverness and the river before but this year discovered the beautiful parks on the...

Lovely location, quiet and by the golf course as well. Would recommend it for a nice walk or a nice drink in one of the many pubs

The river runs though the heart of Inverness and the city skyline is marked by the church spires on either side. At dusk the view is one of the most spectacular cityscapes in Scotland. Suspension bridges cross the river and the views downstream are breathtaking. If you visit the city make time to explore the riverside cafes and walks. The... More

The Ness Guest House is a very short walk to the Inverness City Centre. It's super clean, quiet and an excellent breakfast provided. On-site parking is also a plus. Susan is very helpful if you need local knowledge. There are a couple of pubs close by to have a pint and relax. I would definitely recommend this excellent Guest House... More

Took a stroll on the river banks and found a lovely island walk. The air was so fresh after rain, and the nature is beautiful. Many people were walking their dogs there, they seemed to enjoy it too.

Just after the Castle a nice suspension bridge offers lovely wooded walks all the way up to the Caledonian Canal. Easy access and and fairly flat the paths quickly allow escape from the city noise and hubbub!

The Ness Island Walk is a 2-3 mile walk along the River Ness in the center of Inverness. I thoroughly enjoyed this walk that starts along the banks of the River Ness and there are a number of pedestrian bridges that connect the Little Ness Islands. It is very popular with locals out for an evening stroll, also popular with... More

The beautiful, two or three mile walk from the center of town to the islands and bridge across shows Inverness at its best.

We had a wonderful time walking on both banks of the river. The pedestrian bridges are picturesque and make for excellent ways to go from one side to the other. Make time to do some of the river walk when you stay in Inverness.
