Inverness, Culloden, Clava Cairns, Ruthven Barracks, Pitlochry, & Edinburgh

The morning started with a book giveaway and send off from my Inverness lodging- the Atherstone Guesthouse.

We headed out to Culloden Battlefield where in 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Jacobites lost their battle.

Next, the Clava Cairns (this will be one of the locations the Caledonian dragons will harness the earth magic in book 2 of my Keeper series). Grayson came along to show the way into the cairns.

We stopped in Pitlochry for lunch and whisky tasting. Guess where I ate lunch?

I’ll close out this post with our tour guide Bill (also my guide 3 years ago) from Real Scottish Journeys. He was quite supportive of my writing endeavor when last I was here, so…look for Bill in the next book.
