Whin Park Tours

1 Review
If you are in Inverness and want to spend a day out with the family, you will find a beautiful recreational area for just this purpose in Whin Park. Popular among tourists as well as locals, the site is especially great for kids due to the miniature Ness Islands Railway, a large play area and a boating pond.

The train is usually made of a diesel locomotive with long lines of benches attached behind it. If you are lucky though, a tiny steam engine will be in use to take you on the bell-shaped ride through the thick forested areas of the park. It was originally built in 1983, though the current track was finished a few years later to allow it to cross an old iron bridge in the park that was built in 1837.

For those looking for a nice walk, the park's loop trail circles the boating pond and should take about 30 minutes to complete. The pond itself is fit with rowing boats that can be rented out if you fancy paddling around a bit. And of course, there are few better places in Inverness to take an afternoon picnic than Whin Park.

Practical Info

Though the park is open daily, the train runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekends and during school holidays. The fare for a ride is 1.80 pounds. To get to Whin Park, you need to cross Canal Park via Bught Road. If you're walking from other downtown attractions like Inverness Castle, you can take Ness Walk, which will lead you all the way there.
