Great to walk along the banks with a number of places to stop for a drink and several bridges to make crossing easy. There are benches along both sides to sit and take the scenery in.

Few cities have a river such as the Ness running through it. There are walks and bridges and the Ness islands to explore. Perfect for dog walking, jogging, cycling (not on the bridges) or a pleasant stroll.

Lovely to walk the riverside path and across bridges to the mid-river islands. Several pedestrian bridges span the river in town, and the path extends beyond the town center. Joggers, dog walkers, babies in strollers and visitors -- the path is well used, but it never felt it crowded; just safe. Flowers, tall trees, lush.

Early morning walks on river Ness are etched in my memory as some of the most memorable ones I've ever experienced! The gentle flow of... More

The walk along the banks of the River Ness is both interesting pleasantly relaxing, especially if you like an after dinner stroll on a Summer evening (at least, it was meant to be Summer - wrap up well if the north wind blows!). Plenty of places to stop for food and/or drink but also plenty historical interest for those that... More
