Really good swimming for young kids. Enjoyed the inside / outside pool and the wave machine. Good to have access to this facility as a visiting tourist. Went three times in the week. My 5 year old loved it and it got him keen on swimming. Well lifeguarded. There's more here; but we just did swimming.

Generally an experience I have no desire to repeat. To start we had to move rubbish and empty food packets from the swimming pool lockers before entering what was probably the coldest swimming pool I have ever been in.

I take my child to Inverness leisure centre now and again. So many times the water has been so cold, it is really disappointing that you pay the money and you and your child end up freezing. Sometimes the water temperature is ok but for me it is always too cold. The last time we went the water was cold,... More

Visited Inverness to take part in a round of the Scottish National Bouldering League being hosted by the Centre. First time up here and had a fantastic day. Lots of people traveling in from around Scotland. Excellent problems, friendly staff running comp and good sponsorship for prizes. Would be great to see more comps arranged here for all ages.
