Well laid out field of remembrance.

A lovely tribute to a guid family man.

The power of the sea at Golspie
Anne and I went to inverness for a few days courtesy of the trusty old bus pass. We left Ayr on Monday morning on the 6.30AM X77  to Glasgow connecting onto the express gold bus to Inverness. Our hotel was the Royal Highland which was wonderful to sy the least ,it was a little old fashioned but in a very nice way. Our room was large and spacious with a king size bed and a shower in the bathroom which at full power would blow you away. The meals can only be described as excellent with dinner and wine being provided on the first night included in our £99 package (that was for the two of us).On Tuesday we took the service bus to Golspie on the Moray coast which was interesting and different as neither of us had ever been there before.In the afternoon we stopped off in Dornoch with a visit to the famous golf links. Dinner that evening was taken in Wetherspoons (2 steaks and a bottle of a wine) before a nightcap at the hotel to end a very pleasant day. Next day after a walk round some of the sights in Inverness it was back onto the bus for the journey home after what can only be described as a wonderful break and value for money.

  1. Looks like you had a lovely time Gordon. Morayshire was the county of my birth. Forres the town. No mountain climbing for us this weekend, but I wouldn't put it past you to bag a hill in the snow.
