The Inverness Castle was constructed of pink sandstone quarried on the Black Isle. Flora MacDonald's statue graces the grassy terrace beside the castle.
The new Kessock Bridge replaced the old Kessock Ferry shortly after our trip in 1974. It joins North Kessock on the Black Isle (neither black nor an island) to South Kessock in Inverness.
This is a view of the village of North Kessock and Ord Hill from the Inverness side.
The Hamlet of Kilmuir on the Black Isle is viewed in the distance from Inverness.


The Culloden Information Centre and Museum is seen across the heather.
A flag marks the line of cannons of the Duke of Cumberland's force.
The clans supporting the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charles Stuart were a mere 700 yards to the west.
The entrance to a cotter's home (or "cot"), constructed near the Information Centre, is shown in this photograph.
Pat took this picture of the interior of the cotter's home with our digital camera.
On the other side of the cotter's home, your mind may imagine the three main sections: the benn (for sleeping boxes), the butt (a kitchen area) and the byar (a place for livestock).
The tour bus stopped briefly at this view of the Black Isle on the return trip from Culloden Moor.
