Scotland 2017 - Day 11
A day in Inverness
As we had arrived in Inverness a night earlier than planned, we had the whole day to look around the city. The hotel we had chosen was just across the river from the Castle, so that was the obvious place to start. We walked the streets, looked in the shops, had lunch and then sorted out our luggage so that we did not take more than needed on the canal boat. That evening we dined at The Kitchen Restaurant, a bistro-style eatery close to the hotel, and as it happened the sister to The Mustard Seed. .
Inverness is overlooked by a large stone castle, the third on the site. Today it serves as the local court. In front of the castle is a large statue of Flora MacDonald. She seems to be everywhere in Scotland - even more famous than Bonnie Prince Charlie who she protected, or Robbie Burns who immortalised them both.
