WALKERS strolling along the river in Inverness have been greeted by a new sight for the past few days – a large fallen tree that has been swept down from Loch Ness and run aground.

The large piece of deciduous wood, which is dozens of feet long and still in leaf, has grounded in the middle of the river just upstream of the Infirmary Bridge.

This section of the Ness is particularly shallow and is a popular haunt for anglers, who are regularly seen trying to land a fish or two.

During summer months, when water levels are lower, seabirds are also often seen sitting on the submerged gravel bank in the middle of the river.
