... changed from our last visit in 1989. Re-enactments, conducted tour, and excellent interpretative centre. The last battle fought on British soil, 16th April 1746, saw the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites for good.

(Well, that's what annoying little sisters do, right!) Moan Groan... Come on Henry it's ...
... at 12.30 when we went home. This morning the wind was blowing again and has done all day.
Went for a drive around the hills and back up to the coast. It is fair to say that the far north is not the best part of Scotland. It is a bit ordinary for most of the time with few spectacular sights.
So what do we think of the North of Scotland. Well.....
