|What's The Ground Like?|
SPL reducing its stadium capacity requirements, the
Club have at last been able to develop the stadium.
Mainly to fulfil the criteria, the club have built
two new stands at either end of the ground and
installed undersoil heating. Not only has this meant
that the Club have not had to seek an alternative
site to build a bigger stadium, but also that the
ground sharing agreement with the Club at Aberdeen,
has now ended and the Club have been able to return
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
Away supporters are housed in the new South Stand at one end of the ground, where up to 2,200 fans can be accommodated. John Hill informs me; 'The ground is very smart and there's a great atmosphere when it's a full house. The ground staff are also very welcoming and the location is pretty good, with some stunning views over the water. The only real let down, was the lack of a supporters club at the ground or any nearby pubs. Otherwise, the catering almost makes up for the lack of beer, especially the brilliant steak sandwiches!'
The ground is built right on the coast of the Moray Firth, means that there can be some biting cold winds coming off the sea. However, the ground has quite a picturesque setting and from the away end you get quite a view of the Kessock Bridge climbing up into the distance.
|Where To Drink?|
|John Blair informs me; 'There are no pubs as yet around the ground. There is due to be one opened at the ground, but at the moment the nearest pubs are about half a mile away towards town centre. In town there are plenty of good pubs. Try the Gellions, the Phoenix or Gunsmiths, or the Caley Club (near Caledonian FC's old ground) which has plenty of history. Most home fans tend to head for The Innes Bar in Innes Street near the harbour. It's about a 20 minute walk from the stadium'.|

station, is about a mile away from the ground, which
is about a 20-25 minute walk away. On leaving
Inverness station follow the signs for the car park
and bus station (going along Railway Terrace). Cross
through the car park, keeping the bus station on your
left and on your right you can see a bridge crossing
the railway line. Go across the bridge and then
continue straight ahead along Longman Road. Eventually
you will reach the stadium on your left.
Thanks to Ingo Braun for the directions and who also adds; 'After the match there were a number of shuttle buses waiting outside the stadium to take fans back into the town centre'.

|Nathan Davies informs me; 'There are 16 disabled spaces in front of the main stand but the dug outs partially obscure the view of the match. A better bet may be to ask whether you can sit at the top of the main stand (accessible via lift), where there is limited space next to the executive boxes. This ensures a much better view. Disabled are admitted free while helpers pay £11. To book a space call the club on 01463 222880.|
