#Scotland17 Day Three: Lochs, firth and two smoking properties*

“Contrary to popular belief, the Loch Ness Monster is not a dinosaur – it’s a huge mutant duck” -Gluber

Today I decided to go off the main A9 route for something a bit more “Loch”, and Scotland didn’t disappoint! Sweeping landscapes with moody mountain ranges, incredible bodies of water and long winding roads.

I visited two Historic Scotland properties – Urquhart Castle (cool but uber busy) and Fort George (immense in every sense of the word) – then hit Inverness for an early evening wander and some dinner. A great day, and getting ever closer to the north. Who know’s if I’ll have the internet tomorrow; won’t promise pictures for a few days!

* Please note no towers were smoking – this was simply trying to create a movie based blog title. Apologies for the misinformation, no refunds will be made.

    Not long until shetland… We are all excited about your arrival. And when I say all, I mean all of Shetland.

    P.s. might I suggest the next film based blog title be “Done Wick” (you know… Instead of John Wick?) Except you’d actually have to ‘do’ Wick which might not be worth it

      So looking forward to seeing you πŸ™‚

      I went to Lidl in Wick… don’t know if that counts! Wifi here is shakey, 3G non-existent so won’t be able to do photo bits today.
