This evening, my focus is on the Capital of the Scottish Highlands, Inverness which is locate at the junction where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth and North Sea.

This is a pleasant enough city and a convenient location for a touring base of the Highlands including the famous Loch Ness which is just a few miles to the south.

Places to see in and around Inverness include Moniack Castle, Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, Dalmore Whisky Distillery, Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Beauly Priory, Corrimony Chambered Cairn, Clava Cairns, Inverness Cathedral, Munlochy Clootie Well and Castle Urquhart on Loch Ness. Within the city can be found some interesting architecture dating back to 1593 as manifested in the form of Abertarff House.

This video clip was taken from a high elevation overlooking the city.

This is a former church on the banks of the Ness.

Elsewhere today, I have been busy handling a wide range of tour enquiries including private ancestry tour, family tour of Scotland, self-drive tour and more. A guest from last year touched base through the medium of a social networking site.

I also posted another tranche of names ( WW1 casualties) from the Barrhead War Memorial to my GlasgowAncestry blog.
