In 1996 I drove to Inverness with my mother. Inverness is a city in the Scottish highlands with a population of about 75,000 people, it is the northern most city in the United Kingdom. Inver is gaelic for mouth of - hence Inverness lies where the River Ness enters the Moray Firth (firth is a sea bay or strait). Lee (Rosemary's son) offered to take us to Dornoch for the afternoon and I was very happy not to drive especially with the weather. Like I said one minute sunny the next minute snow!
I did not think it could get any colder but surprise surprise it can! We took the boys to Dores gateway to south Loch Ness - we thought it would be nice to walk along the beach and visit the playground - however it was bloody freezing so we ended up going into the Dores pub for lunch - how civilized that you can take children into pubs!
After lunch we took the boys to an indoor play zone - great some warmth and I can rest while the boys play
