A Scottish Safari

Goats,rabbits,Highland cows,pheasants and even our first sighting of a family of Deer,following a Stag,gave us great excitement on our journey from Gairloch to Newtonmore yesterday.

We stopped at Inverness for lunch. Our firet time back in a city since this day last week! We ventured on in search of the Loch Ness monster, taking almost an hour to drive the length of the Loch. We didn’t realise quite how big it was, until seeing it up close. Coolto be in a place of Legend 🙂

Looked after by Roy when we got there, ww had a quick rehearsal and some delicious food before the concert. One of the young children from the Isle of Eigg had recommended our concert to her granny, and she was sat right up the front with a big smile. Afterwards, one lady described us as a “chorus of wondrous birds.”

We stayed in a really great B&B, looked after by Karen and Phil, who jumped in to help their friend out (the owner of the B&B). Wine last night with them and Roy, and a cooked breakfast this morning. Not bad, at all!

Last leg of the tour now, on our way to Edinburgh where we’ve managed to squeeze in a lunchtime recital at St. Giles Cathedral before all heading back to London. Thank you Tunnell Trust for an amazing opportunity. We’ve had a brilliant week!
