June Trip 2019

Sunday 16th to Tuesday 18th June 2019

Full report, with photos, now available at “On a Wee Highland Daunder“.

This year’s trip will be a two night visit to the Highlands, based at the Coylumbridge Hotel, near Aviemore.

We will set off at 8:15 am from the Glen Car Park, Pittencrieff St, 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. Those of you with NTS membership please remember to bring your cards, as Culloden and Hugh Millar’s Cottage are NTS sites.

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 will visit Cawdor Castle with plenty of time to explore both the castle and the beautiful gardens. Lunches and snacks are available at the castle’s courtyard cafe. We break our journey home, with a stop for high tea at the Salutation Hotel, Perth.

Looking forward to an excellent trip!
