No one goes to Inverness and Loch Ness without looking for Nellie. Even in our walk along the river, I kept my eyes peeled. we did the river walk which is quite nice and cool and as usual there was a bagpiper along teh walk.

Absolutly amasing place to visit. August is a good month to do it as there is a higher probability to have nice weather

The River Ness has paths on both banks. You can walk down one side to the islands and the Botanical Gardens and then back up on the other side. Wonderful scenic views & photo ops!
