Scotland

Inverness

Another beautiful day, and we headed north and west to see some more of the Scottish Highlands. We drove to the west coast, and stopped in the pretty village of Ullapool for a coffee. Just before arriving in Ullapool, Pat finally saw a herd of Highland Cattle, which she had been searching for since arriving in Scotland!

We then took a leisurely drive northward, through rugged mountains and moorland, and through foothills reminiscent of those around Longview, Alberta. It is startling to realize that our latitude here is almost 60 degrees north!

We continued on to the little seaside village of Tain, where we had a light lunch. On our way back to our B&B we had an afternoon rain shower, reminding us that we are in Scotland!
