It's an incredible environment and feeling when you're in this area. A must visit when you go to Scotland. The city of Inverness is mandatory too.

A friend recommended getting a room on the River Ness....and I am so glad that we followed that idea. When the sun sets way late in the evening, it is good to sit in your B&B or small hotel (we stayed in the Strathness House the first time) and watch the water flowing swiftly through the town. Best view, best... More

For £13.50 you get an hours boat trip to Urquhart castle and back, passing stunning views as you travel up the lock. For an extra £12 you can get off at the castle and spend an hour looking around. Worth every penny.

I often take my dog around Ness Isands walk, she loves it, its safe to have her of lead, and a great place for dogs who love to swim and be in the water. The walk has nice views up and down the river. If there has been very heavy rain the Ness Islands can be shut due to flooding,... More

What a beautiful picturesque setting the River Ness is set in. They were doing a lot of flood defences when we visited Inverness. I'm sure it will be fab when it's finished but it didn't spoil our walk. The views are stunning and looks just so peaceful with all the gorgeous buildings on its banks. A very beautiful walk using...
