Inverness ~ Loch Ness


On the way to Loch Ness we spent a night in Inverness and put up in this Whinpark Bed & Breakfast.  Inverness is regarded as the capital of the Highlands and is the centre for commerce and industry.  It is the most northerly city in the British Isles and said to be one of the fastest growing cities in Europe and tourism plays an important part in the economy.

The breakfast area, clean and neat


Our bedrooms, also neat and tidy.





We had our lunch in the above restaurant.


Chicken sandwich, Trout, Beef burger and Cumberland Sausage ring



River Ness


Inverness Castle sits on a cliff overlooking the River Ness.  The red sandstone castle was built in 1836 by architect William Burn and today it houses Inverness Sheriff Court.   The Drum Tower houses an exhibition of castle history and is open daily in the summer while the castle itself is not open to public.





This is the breakfast we had before we moved on to Loch Ness hoping to catch a glimpse of  'Nessie' the world famous monster!
