  • Perfect to walk around. Nice area clean. Good for photography, bicycle, if you have a dog.Plenty benches to sit and relax near the river. 
  • We experienced the river as it flowed through Inverness, so that part held an urban vibe. Seemed well-kept and clean, and contributed to the overall ambiance of this wonderful little city. 
  • If you are a fan of Harry Potter and outlander You should visit this place It's a beautiful place, I've no words to say
