Can't be positive, but we think we had a bagpiper ghost in our bathroom because we heard bagpipes all night. We asked everyone else but nobody else heard it. At breakfast Colleen made us all try black pudding (blood pudding) and haggis. Haggis is made from sheep organs mixed with onion, oatmeal, suet and salt. Neeps and tatties mixed with stock and simmered in the animals stomach for 3 hours..GROSS!! Today we followed the River Clyde down to Loch Ness where we spotted Nessy! We even got a picture of him. Then we saw more water, water, water, lochs, firths ... it got a little confusing for everyone. We saw our first castle at Uraquat. Beautiful. We just arrived at Charlie Chaplin's summer hotel in Nairn Scotland to spend the night. Very swanky! We just had dinner at the Newton Hotel and took a tour of the tower where it's been said the ghost of a jilted bride haunts the hotel. We are on the north sea and Norway is just around the bend (or so we think). Disregard the first sentence, maybe we had too many Guiness. Good night from Fran, Pam, Colleen and Reg,,,Chapter 3 to follow tomorrow!
