Where I stayed
#6 Leachkin Drive
Lets see, where the heck are we! Oh yes, we are in Inverness.
We left the Isle of Skye on Saturday morning and drove to Inverness. It took us a while to find our house because we loaned TomTom to Mike and Anne for their Edinburgh trip. That was a mistake. After driving around, we realized that we came in from a different direction than we thought. We didn't do anything that afternon, but wait for Mike and Anne to arrive.
On Sunday, Stacy and I went into the city centre and toured around while Mike and Anne did laundry.
On Monday, we drove down to Urquhart Castle and toured it. We then went back to town and caught a boat for an hour tour of Loch Ness. We saw Nessie(see pic!). We then went out to a nice Italian resturant for dinner
On Wednesday we split up and Stacy and I went to Fort George. It was built in the 1750's and is huge. It covered 42 football fields. We met Mike and Anne later and made spaghetti dinner.
On Thursday we went to the Culloden battlefield, Clava cairns and Cawdor Castle. The battlefield is where Bonnie Prince Charles and the Jacobite army were defeated by the British army. The Cawdor Castle and gardens were really nice.
On Friday morning, Mike and Anne left for Glasgow and again we were left to ourselves. We had a great time with them. It was very nice to have someone that we know to share Scotland with. We did some laundry, went shopping for food and took naps.
