visit small towns in the Cairngorms
A day trip through the Cairngorms would be a pleasant way of seeing the typical Scottish towns- Dalwhinnie, Moy, Carrbridge, Aviemore, Kingussie [pronounced Kin yussie]...the towns have beenbuilt of the local stone, the scenery nearby includes hills, moorland and rivers.
Among the tourist attractions at the battlefield site is a reconstruction of a 'black house', the old dwellings from the time of the battle.Houses were simple usually one room for the family and for the animals.
Fort George - Guardhouse
The approach to the fortress from the landward side is across a wide area of loose shingle, unsuitable for siting heavy guns, so that besieging artillery is kept out of range. Sloping grassy banks designed to absorb artillery shells all but hide the fort from view. The entrance is reached via a ravelin, a free standing defensive structure incorporating a guardhouse and completely exposed to fire from the main fort.
The guardhouse is now the ticket office for admissions.
"There is no thing such as "bad whisky""
No so far in the north of Inverness you find Glenmorangie with its famous distillery. If you really like whisky you have to visit it once. The Glenmorangie is the 3de biggest selling Scottish single malt whisky (next to: Glenfiddich and … an other one) and produces my favorite one, the 18year rare single malt.
"the largest stills"
It has the largest stills in Scotland (16feet/5meter) which gives a fine taste to the whisky, almost as Irish whiskey.
On tour you get the picture of the amount of whisky they produce! So I only can say: “keep on going, lats!”
If only I could fill one of these and put them in the trunk of my car :(
or even better, get one of these! These I can open already without waiting 18 more years :)
