Hoof with attitude on the Black Isle

Scotland – The Black Isle

Heading north we had a couple of nights booked into a hotel just west of Inverness. On the way we stopped briefly at Aviemore before visiting the battlefield and museum at Culloden which was very interesting and enhanced my knowledge and understanding of Anglo-Scottish history by quite a sizeable amount. It was the last battle fought on British soil and was actually between two families, not two nations – something I hadn’t appreciated before.

The main purpose of the stopover in Inverness was to visit The Black Isle where my Ross ancestors had come from. I didn’t want to visit graveyards, I just wanted to get a feel for the place, and I was not disappointed. Many of the shots I took were as a personal record, but here are a couple that give you a feel for what a lovely place it is …
