Somehow it felt like we were getting more and more lazy as the holiday progressed but I think that, today we were just all drained from the preceding long days. We only left Hilllview house at 11am and planned nothing for the last day of the trip besides a leisurely cruise on Loch Ness. Sure, it's the touristy thing to do but I was happy to just relax and enjoy the company of my travel mates.
Lunch was at the Oakwood pub across the road from the Jacobite Cruises jetty. I finished off with one of my favourites...cod and mushy peas.
The cruise, which turned at Urquart Castle was rather uneventful but allowed time to reflect and share.
Katherine and Iza decided it would be a good idea to get a whiskey in before we left. So, after the cruise we made our way to the Castle Tavern right below Inverness Castle and bought, what I thought, was liquid more costly than gold! I'm not a whiskey drinker (or a drinker at all for that matter) and it did taste foul but the warmth of the aftertaste left me wanting more.
