Dark and shallow, but romantic. Stroll along the river banks for some medieval sights of the city (bridges, churches, castle and old streets).

We cruised down the River Ness on the Jacobite Passion tour and it was very beautiful. We received historic information on both the river and the canal beside it and enjoyed the ride very much.

With mixed weather our afternoon sail on the river and loch was perfect. We had cover when the rain came down and space outside with fabulous views when the sun shone - what more could you want?

drive along the loch ness and see the wonders of this country's landmarks. There are mountains all along the road and beautiful places to sit, relax and have a cup of coffee. Recommended 100%

We got to enjoy it while it was pouring rain. Lovely but very cold and windy. I liked how close it was to our hotel front door.

Sun was shinning, daffodils and spring flowers were out enjoyed Lovely walk along River. It is a nice easy walk mainly flat. You can walk both sides and cross over at various points. On one side at the moment there is a lot of renovation work going on. They are repairing pavements and River Bank walls. Making a beautiful job... More

Our short time in Inverness meant that we could not explore as much of the river as we would have liked, however, our hotel was on the riverbank so we were able to enjoy being close to the river. Inverness is a very pretty town, with amazing views of the hills to the north, and good views of the river... More
