    Inverness

    September 15 in the United Kingdom

    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, Scotland

    September 22, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    A relaxing wander around town today, still fine weather although a little brisk at 6°C. Maybe I should have packed some winter clothes. Off to the hairdresser for a freshen up. Still back in the 80's with the old dears having their perms. The smell of perming solution hasn't changed.

    Inverness

    August 26, 2015 in the United Kingdom

    9:48 pm We arrived at the Glen Mhor Hotel right along the bank of the Ness River in Inverness. It is a bit unusual in that our rooms are strung out among six different cottages. Ours is very small, rather old and very modestly furnished. We all met in the dining room in the main building for supper. I started with a delicious lentil tomato soup that had much the same flavor as spaghetti sauce. Glenda says she wants to duplicate that recipe when we return home. She is starting to get a sore throat and her nose is running. The dining room has no curtains, and a late nineteenth century pressed tin ceiling so that our dinner conversation became extremely loud, and it was hard work to be required practically to shout to be heard over the din. After supper I went for a walk along the river. The sun had set about half an hour before and I got some great shots of some of the buildings with their reflections in the Ness. We got to bed in our very tiny room about 10:00 pm.Read more

    Inverness

    August 5, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Vendredi, 5 août 2016

    La visite de la capitale des Highlands est prévue pour l'après-midi. Inverness est réputé difficile pour le parcage. Eric nous dégote une place le long du river Ness, mieux ce n'est pas possible. Les trésors de la vielle ville sont vite admirés, il y a d'innombrables églises, un château reconstruit et un ancien marché couvert, plein de charme. Certains anciens lieux de culte ont une nouvelle affectation, sont par exemple devenue bibliothèque ou bistrot, comme The Mustard Seed, où nous savourons des mets écossais, style "nouvelle cuisine". Sublime! Nous avons prolongé notre séjour à Rosmarkie où nous ne nous lassons pas d'observer le bras de mer juste devant notre camping-car.Read more
