Highland Council will carry out yearly maintenance on River Ness flood gates on Wednesday next week (September 22) between 9am and 1pm.
The exercise will involve closing the flood gates on the flood wall between the harbour area and the Ness Bridge.
A Council spokesman said: "While every effort will be made to minimise disruption, there will be periods when access at some of the gates may not be possible.
"The Council apologises for any inconvenience, which is in the interests of public safety, and will try to limit the closures to as short a time as possible.
"In particular, the Greig Street bridge gates will be closed and it is recommended that the public avoid this particular crossing of the river during the time of the exercise."
