Inverness...

This is the last of the holiday pictures...you might be relieved to know ;o)  Although we travelled about we stayed in Inverness the longest.  One evening was a perfect summer's night with the sun out still high in the sky 'til late.



All through our trip to Scotland we were treated to the sounds of bagpipes...and once again in Inverness we heard them as they marched through the town. 



This was a particularly sweet treat as they had drummers too and the sound of so many reverberated throughout your whole body.



Not far from Inverness is Loch Ness.  Originally we were going to get a cruise, but there were bus loads of people and we felt it would be very touristy, so we opted for a quieter woodland walk where we found this stream which flowed into Loch Ness.  It was peaceful and provided a perfect location for a spot of lunch.  Again we were spoiled with a red hot day and the kids kicked their shoes and socks off for a paddle in the cooling waters.



It was a fabulous holiday...if not a busy one.  Scotland has such amazing landscape and I can't wait to visit again.


Until next time...

Great pictues, living in Scotland, Inverness is one of the few places I've yet to visit, been as far as Fraserburgh on the east and Fort William to the west. I'll need to make the time and get up there too, thanks again for the motivating post.
