This is a view of Inverness as seen from Godsman's Walk. Godsman's Walk runs from Culduthel Road, near the castle, towards Aultnaskiach. It was said to have been built by Captain Godsman who was the factor at the castle in the 1760s. Whether or not he built the walk is debatable but he was seen walking this way from the castle to his home at Aultnaskiach every day.

This illustration was taken from 'Mackenzie's Guide to Inverness', by Alexander Mackenzie (Inverness, 1893)
