In this audio extract, an Invernessian recalls a favourite Christmas-time tradition on the River Ness. The extract is from Moray Firth Radio's 'Recollections' series.

Christmas day, as it is now, was a family occasion; more so then, I think. We all went to our grandparents' home here in Inverness, had our meal there. And then, my memories are, my grandfather, after lunch - he was a great salmon fisher - and he took us kids walking right up the Ness, the River Ness, to show us where the salmon did all the spawning. And in particular we would go to the Ness just opposite the Nessbank Church, where the gravel beds there, if it was low water, you could always see the salmon swishing about on the gravel beds spawning, and that was a great sight for us children in those days
