The Gardens

Our courtyard, veranda and lawns provide further event space for outdoor receptions, dining and more.

Courtyard – Our Courtyard area provides a tranquil oasis with bright, airy surroundings and manicured shrub borders. Comfortable garden furniture offers the perfect space for up to 30 guests to relax in the great outdoors. While enjoying stunning views towards the river. When the sun sets, the Courtyard transforms into an enchanting space with firepits, adding an extra layer of warmth and ambience.

Veranda – Our Veranda forms part of the historic Ness Walk building and offers a unique and sheltered area to enjoy a drinks reception or to use as an outdoor breakout space during a conference. Overlooking the Courtyard, this Victorian terrace can seat up to 20 guests. And, it features a heated dining area with cosy rugs for those chilly evenings.

Lawns – Nestled amongst the towering trees, our rolling lawns of lush green grass slope gently down to the river. A colourful array of flowers frame the borders of this tranquil outdoor space, creating a haven of greenery in the heart of the city centre. The Lawns at Ness Walk Hotel offer the perfect location for garden soirees, a place to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Sustainable Catering

Our dedicated team is here to help you plan and execute a successful and sustainable meeting. We will be delighted to create a bespoke catering plan for your event using the freshest seasonal produce, incorporating a plant-based focus.

Sustainable Transportation

At Ness Walk, our concierge service promotes the use of sustainable transportation. We are ideally located just a short walk from city centre. And, we recommend delegates use public transportation to access events at the hotel. Inverness City now boasts a fully electric bus network with zero-emission Yutong E10 buses now operating on all city centre routes. The nearby Maxwell Drive bus stop offers a direct 10 minute journey to the Inverness Train Station. Alternatively, we recommend low-emission provider Maynes Coaches who offer coach hire in the Highlands.
