Wee Trip to Scotland — Part 2

Stage 4

No vaca­ti­on without the sea. Of cour­se, Of cour­se, I also wan­ted in Scot­land to the coast, at least for a moment. It has beco­me a who­le after­noon and the plan­ned visit of the Fai­ry Glen Water­falls must now wait until the next trip. The rock for­ma­ti­ons on this beach sec­tion are impres­si­ve. On one side the sea, on the other hand the broom green hills full of blu­e­bells and yel­low gor­ses and broom. The­re are caves to explo­re, but becau­se the wea­ther was so gre­at, we have dis­pen­sed with an explo­ra­ti­on of the caves. In good wea­ther you can see Fort Geor­ge on the oppo­si­te side.I took most of my Pho­tos at this Beach.

Rose­mar­kie lies a quar­ter of a mile east of the town of Fort­ro­se. The pair make up the Roy­al Burgh Of Fort­ro­se and Rose­mar­kie, situa­ted eit­her side of the Cha­non­ry Ness pro­mon­to­ry, about twel­ve miles north-east of Inver­ness. Rose­mar­kie fronts on a wide, pic­tures­que bay, with views of Fort Geor­ge and the Mor­ay coast­li­ne across the Mor­ay Firth. Rose­mar­kie has one of the finest beaches on the Mor­ay Firth Coast Line. At the sou­thern end of the beach is Cha­non­ry Point, repu­ted to be the best loca­ti­on on the United King­dom main­land from which to see­dol­phins.

Stage 5

On Mon­day morning we wan­ted to the Foy­er (and from the­re hiking back to Dores) but we mis­sed our bus. Sin­ce we did not want to spend 2 Hours at a bus stop, we chan­ged our plan spon­ta­neous­ly. Sin­ce the Hike from Foy­er to Dores should actual­ly be part of My Peak Chal­len­ge 2016 ( a cha­ri­ty event for blood­wi­se uk, by an idea of Sam Heu­g­han) we had to hike 15 miles that day at least. We fol­lo­wed first the River Ness, fol­lo­wed parts of the Gre­at Glen Way and from the­re to the Cale­do­nia Canal along to Doch­gar­roch and back again. Sce­nic impres­si­ve and with good wea­ther we didnt noti­ced how the time pas­sed. Glad­ly we would con­ti­nue hiking to Lochends but from Doch­gar­roch only the A82 leads over the last few miles to Loch Ness. For hikers the­re is only the way back to the Gre­at Glen Way and we had not more time on this day becau­se we took many pho­tos and so we need much lon­ger for this trip then with just hiking. Back and forth it was a good 15 miles. So we have achie­ved the goal for the day.

The Cale­do­ni­an Canal con­nects the Scot­tish east coast at Inver­ness with the west coast at Cor­pach near Fort Wil­liam in Scot­land. The canal was con­struc­ted in the ear­ly nine­teenth cen­tu­ry by Scot­tish engi­neer Tho­mas Tel­ford, and is a sis­ter canal of the Göta Canal in Swe­den, also con­struc­ted by Telford.The canal runs some 60 miles (97 km) from nor­the­ast to sou­thwest.
