The Waterways Tour is an Adult only guided cycle tour on flat cycle paths, canal towpaths and some minor roads. We use comfortable cruiser bikes which are easy to ride. Our tour takes us out of the city as we ride along the River Ness going through the beautiful Ness Islands then we will stop for 20 minutes at the Inverness Botanical Gardens before we ride along the world famous Caledonian Canal viewing the stairway locks at Muirtown therafter we head through the only nature reserve in the Highlands hopefully seeing otters, dolphins and interesting birds before heading back along the River Ness to the city. Distance covered 10km. Duration 2 hours.

Alison was an excellent, knowledgeable and affable guide. 2 hours very well spent. Tour is easy to do if you are not a regular biker and you get to see more of the city than you would walking. Thoroughly recommended!
