Abertarff House. Entrance

Abertarff House and Inverness

Abertarff House and Inverness is my second post from this wonderful city, with Inverness Museum and Art Gallery published a few days ago.

Groam House Museum. Outside

Groam House Museum

Groam House Museum is a small, free museum, just 30 minutes from Inverness. I was eager to visit this museum because it houses some impressive Pictish stones.

My husband bought a pack of mince pies, we talked about the day we’ll decorate the Christmas tree, so having some Christmas themed sandwiches was only appropriate. As my […]
