This wide peaceful river flowing through the city of Inverness is great for fishing salmon.

Nice to look at and you can see it from different places in Inverness. You also see some bridges that you can cross.

We rented a car and drove around to the Locke. The scenery is beautiful! Great lunch in St Augustine. Took about 6 hours with a stop at Nessie museum. Great way to spend the day.
