The trail that goes along the river is a great walk, plenty of tree lined trails and bridges over to islands. A grand park where I witnessed an event featuring the Highland games, caber tossing, hammer throwing, etc... a truly beautiful walk.

Quaint juxtaposed with modern. Winding , beautiful, and picturesque. Fly fishermen stand in the flower lined water while families and tourists stroll the winding streets along its edge.

I would definitely recommend taking a walk down the bank of the river to the Cathedral; it's very nice on a clear day. I liked watching the fishermen.

In early morning, take the paved river walk on both sides of the river through Inverness. You'll be rewarded with a quiet, peaceful walk (or run) in such a picturesque area. Inverness is a lovely city with a thriving economy.

I had a bit of excercise along the Ness river. The paths along the river make it ideal for running. However, the scenery is rather monotonous.

The ness was lovely to walk along, but I am told that the week after we returned home the ness broke its banks and flooded the area around the Inverness Palace Hotel. but it does look nice with the lights.

Lots of water as you would expect. Runs very fast so suspect if you fell in it would be struggle. There are two victorian iron bridges that span the river and a circuit route over both can be achieved in 30 mins. The river has two banks and the water flows between them.

There is nothing as pleasant as a stroll along a beautiful river in summer. The River Ness cuts through Inverness and makes a perfect destination for a brisk walk or a rambling stroll. From downtown cross the bridge and turn left. Enjoy the view of the rushing water and historic buildings along the route, pass Eden Court Theater and on... More
