Inverness Discovery

The Kessock Bridge

Starting in Inverness we will cycle on a small path across the islands in the middle of the River Ness, before a short section on the road takes us to the cycle track over the Kessock Bridge. After crossing the Bridge, with its spectacular views over Inverness, we follow a quiet, single track road alongside the Beauly Firth. If we are lucky we may see dolphins or seals, as well as many different types of bird. At the end of the firth we join a slightly bigger road for a few miles to reach the popular village of Beauly, famous for its priory (as seen in Outlander) as well as being home to some great gift shops and cafes. Return to Inverness is by train.

Optional extensions to this trip: (please get in touch for prices):

  • Return cycle to Inverness along the slightly busier, but still very scenic south side of the Beauly Firth.
  • A visit to the Glen Ord Distillery in nearby Muir of Ord.
