I spent one night in Inverness. I arrived at night, had excellent mac'n'cheese (Orkney cheese!) in a pub and stayed at a quaint hotel overlooking the River Ness. In the morning I took a refreshing walk along both banks of the river.

I wouldn't make a special trip to see it but it really is beautifully lit during winter. Perfect for a stroll during the evening with plenty of hotels and restaurants along the Riverside to stop and have a bite

This river runs straight through Inverness and is straddled by many bridges. A really impressive feature splitting the city in half and well worth going to see

Make sure this is on your list. Winding roads the closer you get and plenty to see on the way including Urquhart Castle ruins and museum set below road level. Plus glorious water spots and views. Shops and B&B along the way.Just heavenly.
