Left Inverness and travelled in the direction of Wick, travelling mainly along the eastern part of Scotland.
On the way we stopped at Dunrobin Castle – http://www.dunrobincastle.co.uk/ Dunrobin Castle is the most northerly of Scotland’s great houses and the largest in the Northern Highlands with 189 rooms. Dunrobin Castle is also one of Britain’s oldest continuously inhabited houses dating back to the early 1300s, home to the Earls and later, the Dukes of Sutherland.
We are staying at the Queens Hotel in Wick – a 2 star with prices that are much higher. Fancy paying 80 GBP overnight. They have wi-fi access which was just as well as the dongle does not work here. The bed was really awful and did not contribute to my back condition. Verdict – don‟t go back there.
Still have the blocked nose and starting to have a froggy throat – it must run its course – why me?
