Tuesday, August 1.
Happy birthday to all horses.
Spent the day travelling besides Lochs, Loch Linnhe, Loch Lochie, Loch Oiche, Loch Garry and finally Loch Ness.
Stopped at the Loch Ness exhibition centre.
Sorry do disappoint, but the only object they have found in Loch Ness is the remains of John Cobbs world record breaking hydroplane. Like Nessie, they are both dead and buried.
Record attempt marker found in the Loch.
I know where they have been.
Stream running into the Loch.
Plenty of flowers around.
One of two accidents along the way. First one car lost out to truck, second one truck lost out to stone wall.
Council building, which used to be a castle.
Important place this.
Climbed to the top of the tower for a better look at Inverness.
Kessock Bridge over the Beauly Firth.
Ben Wyvis, from the top of the tower.
Interesting planters in front of the courthouse tower.
Rendezvous cafe where the Beatles played before they were famous.
Intriguing pub name.
Ex sevice memorial.
This is different.
Off out to Culloden moor to look at the Culloden battlefield, where the English finally overthrew the Scots.
Scotch thistles appropriately growing where the Jakobites fell.
Pone of the many clan burial sites.
The battle of Colloden was a last ditch stand for the Jakobites, but they fell to the might of the English.
Headed to the camp ground a couple of miles away, to be presented with a great view of Inverness.

Thanks for that, but the battlefield would have been moving!
Keep well and enjoy…
Wow, Su, have you read the books (can’t remember the author), if not, you must. The Outlander series(DVD) also based on the Jacobites is great… we may have already talked about these on our walks. Thanks for sharing. Xx
