A lovely place to walk, cycle or run and has some great scenery, especially in summer on a hot day or at Christmas when lights are up. There are numerous walk bridges to cross and some even sway and bounce which can be fun to walk across and never gets old. One of my favorite places in Inverness.

I understand Loch Ness flows into the river Ness and when I was there the river was very high and running at a considerable pace. It is really a awesome sight to see the power of the river flowing. If you are lucky enough to stay in one of the hotels that run along the river you can sit in... More

Will not consider this ride as one of the best I had but natural beauty and calmness can be considered. River ness has some history behind with local people's belief of Nessei. The guide was very entertaining and had knowledge of river. Overall a satisfactory experience.

It is always nice to go on cruise, especially on the River Ness. Still looking out for Nessie after decades, no luck still but amazing experience.

Having lived in Inverness all my life, the river has always been a big part of it. It can be a slow meandering stretch of water, or as it is today, a roaring rushing beast of a river. This is the water that comes straight out of Loch Ness and runs to the Moray Firth. It has great fishing and... More

Well, the roadtrip to get there is surely something you wouldn't want to miss (scottish highlands are amazing), but the lake itself was a turndown.
