Walking

Inverness is divided by the River Ness, which flows through the city.


Walk down to the river. Look downstream and you will see a series of bridges crossing the river. The bridge you want to find is the Friar's Bridge, the third bridge crossing the river before the harbour. (Friar's Bridge is a busy modern road bridge where the river widens nearing Inverness Harbour.)


If you are on the city centre side of the river cross over one of the bridges and walk down the river to Friar's bridge and continue under the bridge. (If you walk across Friar's Bridge itself there are steps which will take you down to the river bank).


Coming out from under the bridge turn left and walk down Abban Street. Cross over Lochalsh Road to the next junction. This junction is Telford Road. Look to your left and you will see the church which is a few yards from where you are standing.
