Day-tripping Day 1
Family are visiting currently. They've never been to Scotland before, nevermind the Highlands. So we've got a great opportunity to visit the great places nearby.
We travelled to Loch Ness through Drumnadrochit. Down the River Enrick to the shore.
It was a very nice walk down to the shore along the “informal” route. The river is full of little fish and we saw a frog swimming across at one point.
Once we reached the shoreline we were met with a lovely view across the waves. A few people were swimming in the loch and a flock of ducks arrived, with one visiting for some food. Luckily we had some duck food in the bag, so it could get a wee snack.
I knew very little about Guisachan House, aside from it is where Golden Retrievers were bred and the house is in ruin now.
After a quick visit to Guisachan we dropped by Plodda Falls for a walk to see the waterfall. It was super busy with a full carpark and lots of people walking along the paths. Turns had to be taken walking out onto the viewing platforms.
Aside from its busy nature Plodda was lovely to visit. Hopefully we'll get to visit another time with fewer bodies there.
