It was mostly cloudy today, but it rained little. We left Ballater fairly early and headed north to Inverness. The drive was very nice, but, of course, foggy.

It was early when we reached our destination. We settled, deposited the car, and headed into town to look about and eat. The only place we could do so was a department store cafeteria. Mum was feeling very poor. After lunch, she returned to the house. Ann, Pas, and I searched for a Post Office but found none. We also looked for the castle since our Open to View covered it, but we couldn't find that either.

We got Mum from the House and took a drive around Loch Ness. Unfortunately, we ne'er caught a glimpse of the Monster. We stopped at a ruined castle and wandered about it. After we left, the sun appeared.

Going west along the edge of the Loch, the road is wide, straight, and fairly near the water. Heading east, however, we barely saw the Loch, and the winding road was single-traffic. Fortunately, we encountered few cars.

When we returned to Inverness, Mum went to bed, and Ann, Pas, and I went out to dinner. I stayed up reading until 23.30h or so. I am exhausted! Good night!
