River Ness (Abhainn Nis)
Sure, the River Ness (Abhainn Nis) might not be as famous as the nearby Loch with its monster, but that doesn't mean it's not worth wandering. In fact, the vast majority of Inverness' top attractions are situated along its shores, including Inverness Castle, Whin Park, Eden Court Theater and St. Andrews Cathedral. And of course, it culminates in Loch Ness. River Ness also houses the Ness Islands, which are extremely popular nature retreats for Inverness locals.

Though famous, the River Ness is no Nile. It stretches only about 12 miles (20 km) from where it begins at Loch Ness to where it empties into Beauly Firth. Little known fact: it's actually in the river, not the giant loch, that the first ever sighting of the Loch Ness Monster was reported.

Practical Info

River Ness is best experienced from Whin Park and the Ness Islands. Of course, it is also a nice cycle along the 12 miles (20 km) from Loch Ness to Beauly Firth if you have the time.
Address: River Ness, Inverness, The Scottish Highlands, Scotland
