Highland Tour, Day 1

My next tour was a 7-day adventure across the Scottish highlands. This was definitely targeted to a younger demographic and was avery different experience from my last tour.  Both were great, just very different.

This time I went with Haggis Adventures, which had one bold bus.

And I actually ended up being seat mates with a girl from Quebec — Canadians, we always find each other! Our day started with a view of the iconic Firth Bridge.

Our next stop was a somber one, at Culloden Battlefield. This is where the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1725 took place (led by Charles Edward Stuart aka Bonnie Prince Charlie).

Finally, we ended the day in Inverness, where we all got to know each other a bit better.  Guesstimating, I’d say there was at least 30 of us, from all around the world, plus our guide and driver Carol.
