Ness Islands to Close for Essential Tree Works

The Ness Islands, on the River Ness in Inverness will be closed for public safety over two days to allow essential tree works to be carried out.

All public access will be closed on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 February 2021 to allow contractors working on behalf of The Highland Council to fell a large Larch tree.

The Larch, which overhangs a public path has been identified as dead and requires removal for public safety.

Both gates at the General’s Well on Bught Road and on Island Bank road will be closed to all.

The nearest alternative pedestrian crossing of the River Ness is at Infirmary Bridge.

The Highland Council are thanking the public in advance for their co-operation.
