    First stop Clava Cairns. A set of prehistoric stone burial circles dating from 3000-4000BC, set in a beautiful beech grove. Two passage graves, a ring cairn and a kerb cairn, with several circles of standing stones. Peaceful in the sunny damp morning air before the first tourist bus arrived. Then on to Culloden battlefield site. The Visitor Centre opened in 2009 and ...

    ... B names but we finally found number 10 which told us number 2 was back down the hill. When we got here and walked inside, we were blown away. Beautiful wood and high ceilings, wood shutter curtains, old style keys. Plenty of everything from coffee and tea makings to blankets. Ruth and Edgar Muir are just really warm and friendly.
