So here we both are, sitting in Macca's in Inverness listening to some very loud music doing the blog. No Internet, TV or mobile coverage where we are parked. You may well ask where we are with such limited facilities. We are in a fairly big park with all the mod cons, except the I T ones, furthermore the park is only 6km from the city. Never mind this place will have to do. Only having a coffee though, burgers are not on the menu for us.I will write two days into one this time.
Yesterday the 19th we moved on from our visit to Inverness. Of course we came across the best views ever near some of the lochs with the best reflections to boot. Took some photos but they will not do it justice at all. We were driving along Loch Ness for a good while.,topped at some of the scenic stops to have a look at the lake and walk down to its shore. It is very large and beautiful. At one stage we thought we saw the monster and just laughed it off but yes we did see it again a little later on. Took some photos and let you be the judge. By the way there were lots of people around us as well, but we were the only ones to see it. How lucky were we. The park we are staying in is in Culloden and very close to the battle field where bonnie Prince Charlie fought his battle. We will be visiting this sight later on today.
This morning we did the tourist walk through Inverness. It was not raining so it was a very pleasant walk. Inverness is a nice city but once again it does not buzz for us. Yes Graham we are looking forward to Edinburgh and thanks for all the advise, we will take it all on board.
Tomorrow we will be moving on from here and head to St John of Groats, take the compulsary pictures of standing on the most northern point of Scotland , stay the night and return here the next day for a night. Heading south slowly at last. Hold on to the warmth for us please. See you soon.
