Excursion to Inverness
Wedged between the Moray Firth and the northern end of Loch Ness, Inverness has a number of historical sights. The castle is a rebuild of the one that used to stand here which was destroyed during the Jacobite rebellion, the original was where King Duncan was murdered, an event fictionalised in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Other sights include St Andrews Cathedral and the Old High Church and a couple of incredibly interesting museums, The Inverness Musuem and Art Gallery, which houses a number of artifacts dating back to pre-historic times and ShipSpace, a museum of nautical history.
