Alastair's Holiday around Pitlochry
Making my way to the lands of Clan Fraser

Today I decided to go to Clan Fraser lands in the hope that the Clan Museum in Beauly was still open and they would be able to give me some guidance as to where to go to best photograph the lands of the clan.  It started out bright and sunny but within an hour the clouds rolled in so it ended up being quite a dull day but hopefully this picture gallery will still give you an idea of what the country looks like.

As you can see lovely and sunny when I set out from Rannoch but a short way up the A9 to Inverness the clouds rolled in

Coming down the long hill into Inverness

After going over the bridge to the Black Isle I took this last shot looking over Inverness. It's a shame that the tourist industry shuts down on 31st October and this being 1st November everything was shut

This was me on the road to Muir of Ord on the way to Beauly. The above map will show the route I went

As you can see the country is quite flat although you can see the hills in the distance

And at last some 2 hours after leaving I get to Beauly

And yes the Clan Fraser Centre was closed for the winter <sigh>

I stuck the camera to the window and this is what it spotted :-)

And this is the Priory right beside the centre

And a fine place for a wee dram to keep out the cold

Decided to head out of Beauly and a wee way up Glen Africk to see what it looked like

Actually these pictures don't do justice to the views as they all look rather darker that it actually was

This was me heading back to Inverness to take a wee run into the Black Isle

And that pretty much concluded my wee run around some of the Fraser lands.  I was now heading to Culloden while there was still some light to see the battlefield
