Don't forget November's assignment "Travel" and the workshop on night photography on 1-Dec (maybe you can guess what Decembers theme will be!).

See you next month

Highlands day 3

Brian cooked us breakfast again - much more efficiently this time, not that I'm complaining of course...

It was a day of beautiful scenery and fabulous walking - oh and a stop at the Loch Inn for lunch in between.  Here are a couple of shots taken on the walk by the Caledonian Canal - might have saved one for the photo competition.

Then our party split up - two of us headed off to Inverness, dumped hire car, popped into the Inverness Hotel for a quick pint and supper before jumping back on the sleeper.  Pete and Brian stayed another night.

 

  

Fabulous weekend, fabulous company, all over far to quickly!

Highlands day 2

Lovely breakfast thanks Brian.  No photos - some things stay on tour!

So, after breakfast we took the long road to Dalwhinnie distillery.  Had to wait an hour for the whisky tour, so went off to Dalwhinnie villiage for a walk which included crossing a high speed rail track - however trains don't come along too often.

 

Following the whisky tour, we headed north to Culloden Battlefield.

Highlands day 1

Arrived safely in Inverness.  Picked up hire car and drove alongside Loch Ness to Fort Augustus.  Quickly checked into our accommodation and walked down to the village to take a proper look.  Found a trio of monsters...

We then took to the road and had lunch at Fiddler's restaurant in Drumnadrochit - venison chilli, yum!  That gave us the energy and will power to take a look around the Nessie centre before getting back in the car and dropping by Urquhart Castle on the way home.

 

Heading back into the village later for dinner at the Bothy when we will discuss our plans for tomorrow.  Watch this space!

Night train to the Highlands of Scotland

Well things got off to a great start - free bottle of Prosecco at Prezzo, Euston prior to boarding our night train to Inverness.

 

Then it was time to board the night train and enjoy drinks and a chat in the lounge coach.
