About Riverview Country Park
About 26 miles from the dynamic Scottish city of Inverness, you will find the impressive Riverview Country Park. Its sublime beauty is stuff found in fairytales.
The park brings to the fore reasons why so many artists, musicians and writers are so fascinated with Scotland. It blends comely wooden lodges with unspoilt countryside, so much so that the lodges seem part of the natural landscape.
The park is flanked by the Grampian Mountains on one side and the alluring coastal vegetation and beaches on the other. The historic town of Forres sits about 1.5 miles from the park.
You will rue your chances if you do not get a chance to inspect the floral sculptures, gardens and parks in the town. While at it, why don’t you also sample eclectic dishes and drinks in the town’s restaurants and pubs?
