2023 England and Scotland - Day #22 - Inverness

The day included:
  • Breakfast at the Loch Ness Lodge. I had pancakes, while Sharon had scambled eggs and sausage.
  • A visit to the Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre. We had a great tour guide for an hour walking tour of the site. The tour guide did a great job about bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites. It really tied together a number of places we have been in Scotland.
  • A visit to the Clava Cairns. I enjoyed this site more than I expected. The cairns are 4,000 year old bronze age burial chambers.
  • Lunch in the food court of a mall?!? Sharon and I split a small margherita pizza. I was grumpy about this choice. I would have liked to find something more quaint in Inverness. With four adults, the decision making process is much more complex than if it was just Sharon and I.
  • After lunch, Tom and Sharon went on a search for some medicine to treat thier Highland Midge bites. I need to write more about the battle with the midges in a future post...
  • A Rick Steve's Walking tour of Inverness.
  • After the walking tour, the four of us wandered along the river.
  • We had dinner at Cafe 1. I had oysters as a starter and Fillet of Pork [Pancetta, dauphinoise potato, carrot & cumin puree, oyster mushroom & cognac sauce] as a main. Sharon had a Seven Crofts Gin cured Scottish salmon [pink grapefruit gel, pickled vegetables, melba toast] as a starter and Panko breaded Chicken Milanese [spaghetti pomodoro, rocket parmesan, Amalfi lemon] as a main.
  • We finished the night with a drink in the palor at the hotel.
