The Ness Islands are situated on The River Ness opposite the Bught Park. Fantastic walk along the river and then across the intertwining bridges. I walk here most nights if the weather is nice.
“The legendary Gellions Bar is the oldest pub in Inverness and dates back to 1841. There's live music seven days a week and Saturday afternoons are not to be missed! I've spent many a time in this place with my friends, after a boozy girls lunch and it's an absolute hoot. Dancing the Gay Gordon's in a very small space to house band Schiehallion, playing traditional Scottish music, while holding your drink is not for the faint hearted! It can get very crowded, but don't let that put you off. The bar service is impressively efficient, despite the numbers vying to get served! ”
“Fortrose - If you want to have a free day out, I recommend this beach where you might spot some dolphins, as this spot is known for being one of the best viewing locations in Scotland. Also, Fortrose is a lovely quaint village and nice for a wander around.”
“A firm favourite. If you are here in the summer months, try and get a table upstairs on the terrace.”
“Best restaurant in Inverness! Fine dining. Locally sources Scottish dishes with a continental twist. Fantastic service. Our favourite. ”
