Points of Interest
The castle sits on a cliff overlooking the River Ness in Inverness, Scotland. The red sandstone structure, displaying an early castellated style, is the work of a few nineteenth-century architects. There has been a castle on this site for many centuries. In April 2017 the north tower of the castle was opened to the public as a viewpoint.

Food and Drink
Many accommodations in Inverness will provide a packed lunch with prior notice. There are many shops, supermarkets and bakeries in Inverness that may also assist with food supplies. Inverness is also well served by outdoor clothing and equipment retailers that stock any last-minute necessities that may be required.
Such is the way of British hiking, that you need to be prepared for all seasons and weather; hiking boots, warm clothes and a waterproof layer are all required, along with sun protection. Walking shoes may be better than boots for this section, as there are long sections on paved paths and forestry tracks.
Walking poles are not necessary on this walk with only minor ascents and descents, but you can bring them along if they are part of your standard walking equipment.
Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, we recommend bringing a rechargeable battery pack.
