The Clava Cairns are high status burial sites dating from around 2000 BC.
Next we drove through Inverness to pay a brief visit to the famous Loch Ness, Scotland’s largest inland lake which forms part of a chain of such lochs (lakes) stretching down the Great Glen.
Next, back through Inverness to connect with A9. First stop for lunch at Aviemore in the Cairngorm region and then on south with stop of Dalwhinnie Distillery, one of Scotland’s largest single malt distilleries.
Next, we drove to Dunkeld in Central Scotland. First we had tea at the Atholl Arms in centre of town and then paid a brief visit to Dunkeld Cathedral which is the latest of a line of Christian places of worship on the site dating back about 1500 years..
Here is the River Tay and the 200 year old ‘Telford’ Bridge at Dunkeld.
After Dunkeld, we continued south to Edinburgh but en-route called in at South Queensferry to view the famous bridges across the Forth of Forth known as the Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Rail Bridge.
Finally we arrived at our lodgings in south of Edinburgh about 6.30pm and then went to a local pub-restaurant, the Old Bell, for an excellent dinner.
Tomorrow, we visit Edinburgh.
