Travel Tips for Inverness

Packing...

by CandS

We were lucky enough to have a hire car so we didn't need to worry too much about bags at that point... But I would still recommend a day pack to take on your daily trips and a good backpack for easy carrying. Good walking shoes are a must - and so is good wet weather gear... Lots of film for those piles of photos you will take... :) I wish I had a lot more film but we had to limit ourselves with 10 weeks in Europe.

Culloden battlefield

by iaint

Site of the last battle to have taken place on the British mainland, in 1746.

The event is all part of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745-6, which came close to overturning the government of the day. Mostly Scots v English, but not as clear cut as that. Of course France was supporting the Scots.

In summary, Bonny Prince Charlie was the Scottish "king in exile" and had a claim to the British throne. With French support he returned to Scotland and raised an army. It took over Scotland without much trouble, and then the northern half of England.

In typical Scottish style, they had exceeded the limits of their ambition (or maybe they just didn't like the English beer), and retreated back to Scotland. The English regrouped and "invaded" Scotland. Culloden was the final battle, and the Jacobites were routed. Charlie escaped back to Rome and became a full time alcoholic.

The National Trust for Scotland (with financial support frae a' the airts) has built an impressive visitor centre - opened in 2007 - at the battlefield, before which it was just a few gravestones on a very windy moor.

My 14 year old was fascinated by the whole thing, to the point where I felt like chivvying him along a bit. I resisted, chilled out and let him take it all in.

MOST IMPORTANTLY...we learned a little of the role of the Taylors (my family name) that day - in the second line of the Jacobites (yeah...rebellious even then) with the Duke of Perth's troops. We also know that at least one Taylor died there.

Cawdor Castle

by stevezero

Bit of a sore point this one. We arrived a few days before the castle was open for the season, and some joker had taked down all the road signs so you could not find it. After driving around and wasting petrol, we finally caught a brief glimpse, but were very p*****d off by this time, so we will not be returning!

Inverness area

by CandS

We spent a day or two driving around this area... I wish we had more time but I'm sure we will visit again some day...

Everything looked nice around this area...it's such a pity that we had rain to spoil our travels...but we didn't let it stop us... :)
