Scotland - Inverness

Inverness Castle overlooks the River Ness.  This spot was the location of a wooden fortress before a stone castle built in the 15th century.  It was destroyed by Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite army in 1745.  The present castle was built in the 1830's

Walking up High Street, we see where it becomes a pedestrian area.  Notice the McDonald's on the corner.

The clock tower rises 130 foot above the street and originally served as a tax collection point.

I wonder what happens when the tree gets too big for the hole.  Anyway this is street art named Earthquake - a reminder of the quake that hit Inverness in 1816.

The Ness Bridge

The Bouncy Bridge is a footbridge built across the river in 1881

Free Scotland Church.

As with a lot of other bridges we've seen during our travels, this one has "love" locks on it.
