The River Ness runs right through the City of Inverness, the name itself coming from the Scottish Gaelic Inbhir Nis, basically meaning ‘Mouth of the River Ness’. The river flows about 10km (6 miles) from Dochgarroch Weir at the northern end of Loch Ness down to the Beauly Firth, so it’s a relatively short distance but nevertheless carries quite a lot of water out to sea.
And now I have to write a whole post about the river, I find I have absolutely no idea what else to say about it! Still, I’ve managed to find some images I haven’t posted before, so all is not lost… 🙂
For this year’s A-Z I’m going to take you on a photographic tour of My Inverness, Past and Present. I grew up in the local area, I went to school here and brought up my three children here, but I moved away to London for 18 years before returning home for good at the end of last summer.
P.S. My initial plan for my A-Z posts has necessarily been curtailed somewhat due to the current coronavirus pandemic, but we’ll get through the alphabet one way or another, however creative my use of subjects may have to be – so thank you for visiting Inverness with me, and I hope you enjoy our trip!
