Bijou gardens with tropical and dry greenhouses. Beautifully kept greenhouses with colourful planting. Lille fish pond with a couple of HUGE koi carp, which presumbably live on the smaller ones. :-). Sheltered outside gardens with scented plants, edible plants, fruits etc. Nice little cafe too. Would be even better in summer. Well worth a visit. Walked back via the islands in the Ness. Also worth the trip.

We had a lovely time wandering the grounds of the botanical gardens. We enjoyed to cool fall air and taking in all the late fall foliage and the green houses made the day! Such a nice way to spend the afternoon with a good friend catching up and wandering through the diverse plants. Highly recommend. The walk along the river to get to the gardens in of itself is also a treat and feast for the senses... especially in the fall with the leaves changing color!

As a horticultural professional, I loved the Inverness Botanical Gardens. The flowers were beautiful and the collections were well presented. It didn't take long to view the entire place but I did appreciate how well the place was put together

We came across the Botanic Gardens when walking along the River Ness from Inverness to visit the Ness Islands. It is small but some lovely flowers to look at. There were two green houses - one with variations of cacti and the the other with tropical flowers. Not massively big but something to look at to pass time. Also a nice little cafe with some cakes that looked very tempting! Entry was also free for the Botanic Gardens.

A little gem well worth seeking out - smashing outdoor and indoor gardens worth seeing. A great restaurant attached provides good value, well cooked and presented food.

The gardens are great. The hot houses even better especially on a grey day in Inverness. Spent many a lovely hour looking round and buying plants. Then enjoying a light lunch in the cafe. wonderful.
From the outside you wouldn't know it was there. Straight through the double doors. Cafe on the right. I thoroughly recommend both. Make an afternoon of it. Eat early as the cafe is popular and can run out of options.

A beautiful walk alongside the west bank of River Ness from the City centre took us to the small but perfectly formed Inverness Botanic Gardens. Free entry gained us access to the tropical hot house and arid desert glass house. Loads of beautiful flora and cacti to view. Sounds of cascading water and a pool teeming with Koi Carp lends itself to a haven of peace & tranquility. A lovely place to visit & chill out. Returned to Inverness via the Islands and the east bank of the river. Wonderful autumn scenery and colours.

This is a nice walk of a couple of kilometres from the city core. IT's small, but very enjoyable, with an especially attractive outdoor section that's sheltered from the nearby city and adjacent recreational facilities. The cafe is terrific

Never knew this was here. Restraunt before going in & was bit noisy. Ideal for kids. We had a lovely stroll around & thoroughly enjoyed the peace & quiet as last of children disappeared. Lots of plant life as you would expect & not a clue what called, few people just sitting there listening to the water falling through the displays and seeing fish in ponds. Felt chilled.

The Botanic Gardens is situated near the leisure centre. The best part for me is the glasshouse where you can find a wonderful display of exotic plants no matter what time of year. Not the largest botanical gardens but worth a visit none the less.
