Intimate restaurant owned by a chef who specialises in Scottish produce - particularly seafood. A firm favourite of ours. Nice place for a romantic meal followed by a stroll along the river back home.

This old bar is great for an al fresco pint or glass of wine. It specialises in real ales and has a great malt whisky selection. Small, so always buzzy with a good terrace and a view of the Castle.

If you love Craft Beers then this bar is a must! It regularly features 26 draft beers and over 70 bottled craft beers. It has a great rooftop terrace with interesting views over the town and serves wood-fired pizzas. Good buzzy atmosphere and a mix of ages. Wine lovers won't be disappointed as there is a nice selection of wines and even spirits.

This recently opened bar is a great place to hear traditional Scottish music and it's run by Bruce MacGregor: a talented and well-known traditional Scottish musician! They also offer the Highland Whisky Experience where you can sample the best of the amber nectar on Monday and Thursday evenings with those who know what they're talking about.

A lovely art shop / gallery space with lots of affordable gifts and more specialised artworks. Well worth a look but easy to miss on a flying visit.

Purchase tickets for this very well run cruise of either the Caledonian Canal AND Loch Ness with a stop off at Urquhart Castle or alternatively pick the ferry up at The Clansman Hotel on the shores of the loch for the Loch and Castle visit only.

Dores Inn is a fabulous old pub on the banks of Loch Ness on the outskirts of the village of Dores. It has a tiny but very popular bar and serves amazing food in the small adjoining dining room. The restaurant is always booked up so its definitely advisable to book a table if you choose to lunch here. Recently they have started a shuttle bus between Inverness and Dores to transport customers to and from this very popular venue. A relatively recent addition is the al-fresco wooden 'bar' which has a fantastic view of the loch and allows you to sit outside with your drink and do a bit of Nessie spotting.

Shopping
Excellent independent shop selling quality Scottish gifts with the emphasis on craft-made items. Plenty of Orkney influences as the owner is from the Orkney Islands. Traditional Shetland/Orkney knitwear is featured but they also sell Orkney ice cream and fudge. Small shop with friendly staff and plenty of lovely gift ideas.

As the name suggests this centrally located covered market is a Victorian shopping mall now serving the shopping needs of locals and tourists alike. Most of the small outlets that work out of the Victorian Market are sole traders and the eclectic mix includes a bagpipe maker, a kilt shop, a chocolatier , a crafts/knitting shop, a model shop and a fresh fish/game shop. It has a unique atmosphere and is definitely worth a visit.
