Culzean Castle, Ayrshire, Scotland

Highland Cow with Calf, Great Glen, Scotland

This morning, we departed our lodgings in Inverness in the Scottish Highlands and embarked on a trip as follows:

First to nearby Fort George at Ardesier on the Moray Firth. This is a huge 18 century British Military ‘Redcoat’ Fort which was constructed shortly after the Battle of Culloden (1746) to control the Highlands and prevent another Jacobite uprising. Today, it is still used by the British Army with the Black Watch currently in residence.
