River Ness flows from Loch Ness to the Beauly Firth, running through Inverness and Loch Dochfur. It is one of the most important waterways in Scotland, and along its shores are Inverness Castle, Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Eden Court Theatre, and St. Andrew's Cathedral. The river flows through the center of Inverness and is traversed by many bridges that connect both sides of the city. You'll also find the Ness Islands where nature walks and fishing are popular activities with nearby facilities for sports and leisure. Take a short cruise down the river and peer into the water where you may see the Loch Ness Monster lurking in the shadows.

  • Pleasant riverside walk with several distances shown on local tour guide. The walks are on routes that are flat with no hills to speak of if you have a disability.

  • The walkway down by the river offers a pleasant opportunity to view the city from a different perspective. The paths are well maintained and there are plenty of other folks around doing the same...
