... does not seem to bother her and more importantly the brakes appear to be unaffected by the rain - no fade. I am using the handbrake to supplement the footbrake on the steeper down grades - got a 20% a few days ago - as I seem to get more ...
Drive from Pitlochry to Nairne via A 924, A 93, A939 through Grampian Mountains. Several first gear hills with quite a few narrow passes and bridges. We were lucky not to get wet managed to slip between rainstorms and arrive in Nairne without incident. Had a really ...
Loch Oich (two locks up from Fort Augustus) is the highest stretch on the canal. Fort Augustus itself is a pretty little village and the only place of any size along the complete length of the canal. It is located at the top of a flight of five locks dropping down to Loch Ness. Loch Ness is very large something over 200 meters deep and about 24 miles long and maybe over a mile wide at its widest. No monster today! And NO MIDGES at all so far. ...
... the Falls of Foyer and around.
So that's what we did.
We went to see the falls which were gorgeous! And talked heaps about travel, companions, gear, places we want to go, pretty much everything I talk about usually.
After the walk we sat and had a tea at a little cafe up near the end of the walk and wrote postcards. Sorry everyone at home, this one is going to M&S ...

We caught a bus back to Bromley, where John and Greg took two very sleepy boys back to the flat while Claire and I went down to the supermarket to pick up supplies before getting a taxi back, picking up Mum on the way.
It was such fun, all three of us cooking together while the boys entertained themselves. We had a wonderful evening,, playing cards and laughing together; Mum does so love being Grandma!

TravelPod Member ReviewsRedcliffe Hotel Inverness
We definitely won't be back.
Trying to get a confirmation after using their online booking system was like pulling teeth and included no reservation details (type of room, price, amenities included, etc.). Should have been a warning, I guess.
Our room was directly under the bar, in the basement. Not ideal for a Saturday night stay and when we complained about the noise/late hour on checking out, staff simply shrugged and mumbled "sorry".
I don't want to think about how clean things actually were/weren't. The carpeting was in dire need of cleaning or actual replacement, as were the throw pillows on the bed (I really don't want to think about the rest of the bedding).
Service was erratic and the included breakfast was mediocre. It would help if sufficient staff were available. Unbelievable considering the rate. Certainly didn't provide a good representation of Inverness or this facility.
