After getting our rooms at the Inverness Ramada Hotel, we head out for a visit to the Clava Cairns. The Clava Cairns is the site of an exceptionally well preserved group - of prehistoric burial cairns that were built about 4000 years ago. The Cairns have been known to have magnetic power when crossing a line - going from one cairn to another.  We give it a test.  It worked for some of us.
A stone railroad bridge near the Clava Cairns Sunday morning, August 14 -- We drive through Inverness and then head for the Culloden Battlefield. The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. - Taking place in April, 1746, the Jacobite forces lead by Bonnie Prince Charley, fought - against an army commanded by William Augustus, loyal to the British government. - Meeting on Culloden Moor, the battle was both fast and bloody. Following an - unsuccessful charge, the Jacobites were routed and driven from the field.
Our drive continues as we pass Loch Ness.  (Loch means lake.)  We did not see the Loch Ness monster. But wait -- what's this lurking in someone's backyard pond? Today we're going to be driving south through the highlands - to the lowlands through some absolutely beautiful country. We hit a traffic backup in Drumnadrochis.
