This morning we departed Invernesss and then drove briefly north to view the dolphins feeding at Chanonry Point. We were lucky because the tide was coming in thus providing the dolphins with optimum feeding conditions for their diet of salmon.

Next to Culloden Battlefield, site of the last ever battle on British soil in April 1746 when the Jacobite forces of Bonnie Prince Charlie were finally defeated by a British army under General Cumberland. The site benefits from an excellent visitor centre with audio visual explaining the lead up to the battle and the actual battle which lasted just one hour. Favourable weather meant we could tour the battlefield.

Next to the Findhorn Foundation. This is a unique community with emphasis on personalĀ spiritual enlightenment combined with an eco friendly life style. We were entreated to a private tour of Findhorn where we learned about the distinctive lifestyle and the impressive eco houses on the site.
