Ness Islands, Inverness

The Ness Islands form an attractive recreation ground for the people of Inverness, separated from the town by a narrow branch of the River Ness. The paths running through the Islands provide a popular walk and over the years there have been various attempts to provide other entertainment there.

The Islands stand in the River Ness at a narrow point adjacent to the Bught Park. The first bridges to them were built in or around 1828 but before that the only access to the Islands was by boat. The original bridges were washed away in the flood of 1849 and were replaced in 1853-1854 by two suspension bridges designed by William Dredge.
