16th to 18th June 2019
Next year’s June trip will be a two night visit to the Highlands, based at the Hilton Hotel, Coylumbridge, near Aviemore.
We will set off on the morning of Sunday 16th June and travel by coach to Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre (NTS) where we will have a light lunch followed by an afternoon exploring the battlefield and the excellent visitor centre opened in 2008.
On Monday, we drive across the Kessock Bridge to the Black Isle where we’ll visit Fortrose Cathedral, Rosemarkie and Cromarty. We’ll have the opportunity to explore the villages and visit some of the excellent local museums such as Groam House, Hugh Millar’s Cottage and the Courthouse museum.
On the final day we plan to visit Cawdor Castle and gardens before heading home, with a stop for high tea.
We hope to have full details and costs available for our December meeting.
Our one night trip, from Sunday 3rd to Monday 4th June, to visit the Eastern Borders, based at the Ednam House Hotel, Kelso was a great success.
Cherry Allan has written a full report – “On A Wee Borders Raid“, with some photos taken by Robin Thompson.
