The River Ness - Inverness - The Scottish Highlands

The River Ness is located at the very heart of the Scottish Highlands. Its sparkling waters run some six miles from Loch Dochfour – adjoining Loch Ness, home of the fabled monster ‘Nessie’ – through the centre of the City of Inverness to the salt waters of the Beauly Firth [pop up picture].

This beautiful river has built a solid reputation for its fine catches of salmon, sea trout and brown trout which have delivered years of pleasure for the region’s anglers and visitors from many parts of the UK and overseas.

Inverness Angling Club is fortunate to have the rod fishings for some three miles of water from the estuary to the Clachnahagaig Stone at the top of the Red Braes. The lower beats, in the centre of the city, are dominated by the picturesque Inverness Castle [pop up picture] from which Flora Macdonald’s statue gazes west to the Isle of Skye.

Fishing permits for visitors are available on a daily or weekly basis. More details can be found on the permits page or specific questions can be submitted and answered at the I.A.C. forum.
