Some lovely scenery up there. Spent a lot of time at Thurso, Wick, Inverness and Invergordon. I liked the locals weather forecasting methods. If you could see the tops of the hills/mountains, bad weather was coming. If you could not see the tops, bad weather were here.
Usually it always felt damp, it never really got warm. Many times instead of rain a sort of mist/drizzle would soak you. But the locals would strip off at the first sign of that yellow globe appearing in the sky, how the girls did not get frostbite in their feet and legs I will never know. A great race of people the Highland Scots.
A curious but relatively unknown fact. The most correct English is spoken in Inverness Shire. The consonants and vowels are pronounced correctly.
