Inverness and Loch Ness, ScotlandAugust 18, 2022 in Scotland ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C
Inverness is the capital of the Highlands of Scotland. It's name in Gaelic means "Mouth of the River Ness" and that's exactly where it sits, on the north end of Loch Ness. The town itself was very tourism focused with museums dedicated to Loch Ness and the Legend of Nessy. It had a cute aesthetic, and we even found some remnants of Emily's MacDonald clan heritage.
Loch Ness was beautiful. It is both the 2nd deepest at 230 meters (after Loch Morar) and 2nd largest loch (after Loch Lomond) in the British Isles. That makes Ness the largest Loch by volume. It contains more water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined. Plenty big enough to hide a dinosaur!
We started by driving up the west bank and then ambitiously decided to return by driving around the east bank. The east bank was amazing. No one was out there and we saw two huge bucks by the road, a beautiful stone bridge and beautiful landscapes.Read more
