    West Highlands

    August 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Der Donnerstag war wieder Fahrtag. Auf nach Inverness! Wir entschieden uns für einen Zwischenstop in Plockton. Dort sollten Palmen auf uns warten. Nach einer guten Stunde, mit peitschendem Regen von der Isle of Skye verabschiedet, trafen wir in dem verträumten Dörfchen ein. Die Ebbe nahm uns etwas das Hafenfeeling, Wind und Regen hatten wir trotzdem genug. Nach einer Stunde ging es dann aber weiter Richtung Inverness. Die westlichen Highlands zeigten sich dabei von ihrer schönsten Seite: Grüne Berge, lange Täler, jede Menge Seen. Um 14 Uhr erreichten wir unser Ziel und bezogen erstmal unsere neue Wohnung. Da heute ein seltener Sonnentag war, zogen wir zügig weiter und machten uns daran die Stadt zu besichtigen. Nach einem Kaffee / Tee in der Innenstadt liefen wir die "Ness" gen Süden zu mehreren kleinen Inseln, den Ness Islands. Nachdem wir noch etwas Sonne tanken konntenn, fanden wir auch noch etwas zu essen und genossen den Abend in der Stadt.Read more

    Nach einer trockenen Etappe, es gab sogar ein paar blaue Wolken und etwas Sonne, bin ich jetzt ca. 6 km westlich von Inverness auf meinem Campingplatz gelandet. Er hat immerhin einen Laden und ein Café.
    Das mit dem Café hatte ich zumindest aus der Erklärung des Platzwartes so verstanden, aber seht selbst 😉

    vielleicht liegt es an der Köchin. Sie ist sehr freundlich und nett, kann vermutlich aber auch ganz anders 😈

    Here we go!

    April 21, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 7 °C

    As you can see Tom is excited for our bus tour this morning!, or maybe it’s for our Scottish breakfast. We are off to find the Lock Ness monster; Nessie. I think our chances are good....

    Today is gorgeous, it’s first day we need sunglasses! Our tour leaves on time and the driver/guide has a running commentary that is both interesting and informative. ( if you like that kind of thing)Read more

    Inverness Stadt

    June 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Schauen uns jetzt die Stadt Inverness an. Das Wetter könnte etwas besser sein, unser ständiger Begleiter "Nieselregen". Der Stadttrubel ist verdammt anstrengend, das ist man nach der endlosen Einsamkeit nicht mehr gewohnt.Read more

    Inverness

    September 15, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    A lovely relaxing day spent exploring Inverness. What a lovely place with beautiful river and green spaces. We loved this after Edinburgh. Up early and David has improved overnight. Off on the Jacobite Loch Ness Tour at 10 30. We enjoyed the commentary of the bus driver out of town to a spot where we boarded the Jacobite Warrior boat which took us out over Loch Ness. At that point the weather was cloudy but it improved and the sun came out. Fresh enough though as we sat out on the open deck. Sadly no sign of Nessie. Got off up the Loch At Urqhart Castle. It was truly beautiful as we roamed around the ruins. Peaceful and photo opportunities at every corner. We boarded the bus again and were taken to the Loch Ness Centre and exhibition. This too was excellent with lots of short movies with its information about the Loch Ness Monster. We again boarded the bus for the ride back into town. We arrived back at 2 and found some lunch. Was surprised my Caesar Salad came with chicken, bacon and black pudding! Not sure about their claim as the best cafe in Inverness! We walked through the streets and over the swaying bridge to the apartment where we took a break. Headed out at 4 30 for a beautiful walk along the river which again was gorgeous. We stopped at a very noisy bar for a drink before heading back. Dined later at a lovely bar around the corner with a great menu. Couldn’t believe it was where we had stopped last night as the clientele were unrecognisable. It was much quieter and we ate well. Have an early start tomorrow though as have to be on Fort William by 10 to catch the train to Malaig.Read more

    Inverness

    April 20, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Once again we arrive at the city airport, bus station, train station, you name it, with only a vague idea of where our accommodation is. Dianne’s last word on the subject was “ I want to be near the train station.” We are at the bus station, but I think it’s close. We have the name of the hotel, the Heathmount, and internet access. Dianne’s phone draws a map and mine is used as a compass. We walk through the streets of Inverness staring at our phones. It doesn’t take long before Dianne reminds me that she wanted to be close to the train station. A bit of irony could be noticed here. We just took a bus to Glencoe so we could do some hiking, now we are hiking through the the city and that’s a problem? True, we are dragging all of our precious belongings with us and we don’t exactly know where we are going but whatever.

    It isn’t long before we see a hotel sign Heathmont. Dianne recalls now that she OK’d this hotel before I booked it. As we approach we see a lively sun room that is well attended by the Friday after work crowd. The pub at least is a popular spot. Dragging our bags up the steps we find that reception for this abode is at the bar. Interesting. The last time I checked in at the bar of a hotel was in Malone New York about 27 years ago. Dianne and I had all four kids with us and we were desperate. We are not so desperate now. We both reserve judgment until we see the room. It is newly renovated and quite comfortable. We have coffee and a four poster bed. Might not be too bad.
