after a wonderful lunch at one michelin star kinloch & restful stroll along the grounds & beach,

we were ready for the 2hr drive to inverness.

on the way, we plan to stop & visit the urquhart castle by the side of loch ness near to inverness, and walked the grounds…

& try to catch a view of nessie, as the loch ness monster is affectionately called, likely misplaced affection i think…
