Many cathedrals along the river, it was good to take pictures for them with their reflections in the river.

great walkway on both sides and terrific for picture taking. Lots of bridges and great views. You have to try the suspension bridge.

The river ness is a lovely spot for a Sunday morning walk. There are little islands in the middle of the river which are connected by bridges. A great place to see if you can spot a few birds. It is also lit up at night if you should want to take a stroll before or after evening meal.

A beautiful wide, clean river with pedestrian walks on each bank. Very accessible by road or on foot. Great views of the castle.
