I have been walking up and down the banks of the Ness every visit I have made there since I first went over thirty years ago. It is always a very rewarding thing to do, especially as you head away from the centre of town.

Just a stroll along the banks of the river is a great way to unwind. As you cross over into the Ness islands the river changes and the view is different. Wander back along into Inverness past some beautiful houses. A lovely stroll night or day.

A friend and I drove along the River Ness on 15 April. My friend was showing me around. I liked the islands, trees, boats, and everything else I saw. It was very peaceful. There was a lot to see. I enjoyed our drive along here

Fast flowing, segmented by the Ness Islands which are well set up for walking and cycling with seating at suitable intervals. So tempted to go fishing certainly plenty of access. Maps and places to picnic - very welled looked after

This is a lovely place for a walk on a Summers day, beautiful gardens and old houses along the way and then a great adventure park for the children towards the end of it. Would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting the lovely city of Inverness.

Lovely walk along the banks of the river Ness from the city centre to the islands and back. Could be romantic at night with the lights on. Just watch out for dog walkers and cyclists.

A good walk which could take around 1/1.5 hr or 4 hours depending on how much ground you'd like to cover. The walkway and the connections with Ness Islands are done very nicely, worth to explore the area.

Nice little walk. Lots of bridges and churches. You could also walk down to Ness Islands in the evening (when I was there they had lights in the trees and along the path. A little dark, and I didn't go far by myself; it would have been nice to see more of them).
