Didn't see the monster but still great to walk along the river on a misty day with the hope of seeing the monster!

The River Ness runs through the heart of Inverness. You can walk along the wide paved banks, wondering at the madness of the fishermen up to their hips in icy water, but at least you know the river is healthy.

Loch Ness is absolutely beautiful. It also has a mysterious air over it. We drove from Inverness to Glasgow on this route, we had a lovely stop at Urquart castle and then fort William for lunch. Was a very lovely and tranquil drive / experience.
