After leaving Aberdeen we drove on to Elgin stopping en route for a visit to the Glenfiddech distillery. After a very enjoyable trip round the distillery we were able to sample some of the 12 year old, 15 year old and 18 year old malt. From Elgin we visited Fort George which apart from being an historic and interesting building is still a fully operational army base.We then continued to Inverness and our hotel to find our room wasn’t ready for 2.00 p.m. as we had been told We went and had a little light refreshment but it was still not ready when we returned at 2.30 and, in fact, wasn’t ready until 3.15 p.m. The following day we went to Inverness Cathedral for the 9.30 a.m. Family Mass after a disappointing breakfast. In the afternoon we went to Loch Ness and Urguhart Castle.
