The Ness Islands4 Dec 2020
A short distance upstream from the apartment are The Ness Islands.
You can enjoy a lovely circular walk lasting about an hour, by following the river bank upstream on the east side, exploring THe Islands, and returning by the west bank.
Cross the suspension bridge near the apartment, or the road bridge by the castle and turn right to follow the riverbank upstream. When you reach the war memorial the road bends left, leaving the path to continue following the river. After a few hundred metres, cross the wee bridge on the right across a burn and continue following the path upstream. When you reach a suspension bridge, cross it. You are now on the Ness Islands.
There are some fine trees to admire as you meander through the Islands, crossing each bridge you come to until you finally cross the Ness to reach the far bank. From there, it’s just a case of following the west bank all the way back into the city centre. Why not pop in to Eden Court Theatre for a coffee on your way back?
