Our aim is to walk around the coast of mainland Britain. If we succeed in this plan then at some stage, in years to come, we will reach Inverness. Our walk will take us around the Moray Firth and across the Kessock Bridge. We will skirt around the northern edge of Inverness, but will not venture into the town itself.
As I was staying in Inverness in early December, I decided to do a short walk along the banks of the River Ness in the pre-dawn hours and see some of the town we will be missing out on. There is no better time to do this, for Inverness Castle is lit up at night, and in December there are Christmas lights strung up along the river’s edge. I did not have my tripod with me, so tried to hold my camera as steady as I could whilst I took my photographs. After a lot of blurred efforts I finally took a shot I was happy with.

Have a great Christmas, and maybe a few days rest from walking. Then walk it off! RH
Thanks RH – and to you and your family. We have made very little progress in our walk over the last half year, but hope to be “back in the saddle” on Boxing Day…
That is so pretty!!!!
