The leisure pool at Inverness Leisure is a cut above the standard municipal pool, with wave machine, rapid river and three large flume rides as well as a toddlers area. The hours of operation seem rather limited but that's probably because it was midweek term time.

Availability of features is restricted during school term time so if visiting again please try to schedule your visit for 4.00pm onwards to ensure you get a chance to try everything out!

Hi my name is James, and I went to this pool with Suffolk Scouts. Brilliant pool and the changing rooms were good as well. The lockers were far the best out of what we all did I'd rate it 10\10. And I like how they had a help desk by the pool as well

A diverse leisure centre with gymnasium, competition pool and wave pool, and doubtless more. We were a family group of 3 adults and 3 infants (4 to 9) so we stuck to the wave pool and flumes. Beware the strictly imposed entry requirements requiring a ratio of adults to children, which is ironic given the totally lackadaisical attitude of the... More

Pool was open till 8pm so we managed to get a good hour and half in before closing. Campsite right next door. Family of 4 (1 under 5) only came to £12 which I thought wasn't too bad considering the flumes and size of the pool. 3 main flume slides. Toddler pool. Wave machine and rapid river.

I have used these facilities for many years on a weekly basis, for myself in the competition pool, and have taken various grandchildren since it first opened using the leisure pools. I think it's a great facility the kids have loved it. The new changing rooms are a huge improvement. I don't find it dirty or cold and the staff... More

We visited the swimming pool twice in one week, it's very cheap and really quite excellent for small children... The water was lovely & warm & most of all the pool & surrounding area (changing rooms etc...) were clean... Good large cubicles set aside for parents & children... Friendly staff
