The River Ness is about seven miles long flowing north-north-eastward from the northern end of Loch Dochfour at the top of Loch Ness to the Beauly and Moray Firths.

Only 7 miles long the river is the main natural feature of the city if Inverness, the capital of the highlands, and its banks are steeped in a wealth of history. The river is the origin of the name of Inverness which is from the Scottish Gaelic: Inbhir Nis, meaning "Mouth of the Ness".
