Ness Walk, Inverness


For keen nature watchers, seals and seabirds can be spotted between the two road bridges that run through the city. Along the river, you can walk across the footbridges to explore both sides of the riverbank. Connecting to the footbridges further upstream is a small, beautiful collection of islands called Ness Islands.

Other key aspects to look out for are the Inverness War Memorial, the stunning floral flower gardens and Inverness Cathedral. Fishermen can also be seen salmon fishing in the river from February to mid-October.

At the end of the circuit, visitors can choose whether to end their walk or even continue on towards the Great Glen Way or along the Caledonian Canal.
