This morning, I found myself between tours so went off to visit nearby Greenbank Garden which is managed by the National Trust for Scotland and dates from the 18th century. I enjoy following the progress of the plants and flowers through the changing seasons. Below is provided a selection of early summer images from the garden.

I consider Greenbank to be something of  a ‘hidden gem’ and a nice spot for quiet contemplation.

Elsewhere today, I have been busy with arranging tours including (a) castles, (b) whisky and (c) a small group, two day tour of Scotland. Posted information on Moffat family history to my separate Glasgow Ancestry blog.

This morning, June 9th.,we departed our Inverness lodgings and drove south for about 30 mins to Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. This is probably the best location for viewing Loch Ness, being located about half way along the Loch and on a promontory standing out into the Loch.See image below.This visitor attraction is well managed and provides visitors with a short film showing the history of the castle. Weather was cold but dry. See image at foot of this post.

After Urquhart we continued south along the Great Glen through Fort Augustus to Fort William where we availed of lunch.

Next we visited famous Glencoe
