Perfect for anyone over the age of 4, Zorbing on Loch Ness is a summer must activity. Climb inside an inflatable ball, step (ahem, more like roll) out onto the mighty Loch Ness and enjoy all the splendour of the Scottish Highlands from a fresh new perspective.
3. Chilling Out Poolside: The Ultimate Summer Indulgence!
Let’s face it. After long sunny days visiting the many wonderful Inverness attractions, exploring Ness Islands with the kids, searching for Nessie, rocking along at Belladrum or rolling (a.k.a. Zorbing) along Loch Ness, nothing beats lounging aside a spectacular pool being waited on hand and foot. If that sounds like the perfect way to keep cool this summer, make your way to the Kingsmills Leisure Club for some extra summer R&R and a day full of refreshing drinks and nibbles poolside.
So there you have it. Three red-hot summer activities in Inverness to keep you cool, calm and entertained this summer.
