Been up to Inverness before but didn’t have time to explore the loch (Loch Ness), so decided to make a trip just for this purpose.
A danger with short trips (especially to this part of the world at this time of year) is potential bad weather – but it was perfect. The light in September is stunning also – much clearer than we have down south.
Dreary (or dreich, as they say in Scotland) day in Edinburgh, somewhat enlivened by 400 Pipers marching down the Royal Mile to celebrate QE2 being in town all week.
I always enjoy my visits to Glasgow; but it is a city of contrasts – sometimes not always seen on a quick visit. The signs (literally) are there if you know what to look for: ‘No football colours’ is a common one, even in city centre bars; this is about football, but also an indication of deeper divisions…
