The River Ness (Scottish Gaelic: Abhainn Nis) is a river about 12 miles or 20 km long, which flows from the northern end of Loch Ness in Scotland, through Loch Dochfour, north-east to Inverness, with a total fall in height of about 16 metres before discharging into the Beauly Firth. The river is the origin of the name of Inverness which is from the Scottish Gaelic: Inbhir Nis, meaning “Mouth of the Ness”.
