After leaving Aviemore we headed north through more stunning scenery to Elgin, a market town near the river Lossie. We didn’t arrive until late so didn’t have time to fully explore the town, but what we saw of it looked very nice. The Waterstones is in a modern shopping centre just off the High Street.

After leaving Elgin we headed towards Inverness but pulled off the road at Ardersier to look over the Moray Firth where it is sometimes possible to see dolphin, but sadly we were out of luck on this occasion. Despite the dramatic looking sky it was actually quite a warm day!
