If you like strolling in the nature but not moving away from the centre, this is the place to be, There's a nice walk along the river Ness that leads to a small island, which seems lovely; unfortunately it was impossible to reach it as the water level was high.

Very nice drive on a cold windy day but lovely to have the sun out for a short while. It was our wedding anniversary and we enjoyed the beauty of the River Ness.

Visited Inverness in early January unfortunately it was very cold, snowing and windy. In the summer or autumn it would be a very nice walk on either side of the river bank.

We stayed right on the River Ness. They have a Loch Ness trail that crosses the river and even empties onto an island at one point where you can get "lost on the forest trails." Even though it was cold (JAN) it was definitely a memorable experience.

The walk on river Ness at Inverness is a most-do if you spend some time in there. It is quite relaxing in the night and really enjoyable at day time. If you are lucky, as I was, you can even spot some seals upstream the river, maybe looking for some fishes. I visited it in January and it was too... More

Fantastic new campsite, very friendly owners and staff, superb location and what a New Year party and afternoon soiree. We will return in our motorhome during this year and will be booking our place at the next New Year party.

Whether with family, friends, or on your own, a wander along the banks of the Ness and through the Ness Islands is just lovely at any time of year. The water's so clear and fresh, and I love the white bridges lit up for the night. A tea room might make it even nicer in summer, but then it's so... More

Ok well maybe there isn't a monster in the loch but who knows. Loch ness is a wonderful place in beauty, there are lots of little towns and villages along the banks with lovely little pubs for a drink and some good home made meal, the loch is especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset. Take your camera for sure!
