Fleeting Visit

My second visit to Inverness, and again only a flying visit. Shock, horror at all the ugly concrete, after seeing all the beautiful scenery on route. Also couldn't bear to part with more than a pound for the car park (pay for car parking in Scotland - whatever next - hope it dont, catch on!) which bought me precious little time.
I would echo the views of other scribes on these pages and say that it is a good place to get stocked up to visit the more interesting places nearby.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good raod, rail and air links, plenty to see nearby
  • Cons:Too many tourists, busy, high car park charges
  • In a nutshell:Great place from which to explore the highlands

    Great Inverness tips! It will always remain a puzzler to me why the Scottish/Gaels are so obsessed with Flora MacDonald helping that foolish drunkard Bonnie Prince Charlie
