We started from Whin Park but headed toward Inverness and ended up using the multiple Victorian bridges to hop from island to island. A great way to discover Inverness and the river Ness. Recommended

After a long drive you need to stretch your legs. The River Ness offers lovely walks along its banks to do just this. Enjoy.
