One of the best places I have ever seen. Great to relax and enjoy, and great to look for Nessie. Incredible visit if you are in the area

On the banks of the River ness there are few pathways to follow. They guide you trough the historical places in the city.

The walk along River Ness was the highlight in Inverness. We loved it! We walked along the river from the castle to "Ladies Walk", where we marveled at the houses and well cared for gardens. We then crossed a small bridge to an island in the middle of the river - it was beautiful. We would certainly recommend this walk... More

The river, besides the mitic of itself, beautifully draws its way along the city centre - and has a lovely walking path along.

We were very diligent to observe any sign of a mysterious presence, we are convinced the animal (is it a fish, a dinosaurus, an unknown animal,....) is near, we saw abnormal waves, some shades were apparent in the river, but.... . we should definitively go back to start the exploration again.... Be quite, patient and diligent in your scrutiny....

We always find time to walk the riverside when visiting Inverness as it feels so tranquil to us, yet to truly appreciate the river we recommend viewing it from one of the many fine establishments serving food close to the rivers edge. One of the many wonderful facets which a visit to Inverness can offer you.

Beautiful stroll along with river with views of the castle and the bridge. Passed by St. Andrews Cathedral on our way to the Eden Court Theatre for a food and craft bazaar.
