The next day we were back on the Ferry and in Scotland on our way to Elgin.
We stopped for a short break in Wick but it was Sunday and only the Betting Parlor was doing a brisk business.
We followed the Coastal Road and back roads to Elgin.
Then we stopped at the Duke of Sutherland’s Castle…one of the most hated landlords in Scotland but a great Castle and they had a Falcon demonstration in the back yard that everyone enjoyed.

|ON THE ROAD AGAIN|
|IT WAS A BRAW DAY THE DAY AS WE HEADED FOR ELGIN AFTER HAVING LUNCH AT THE CASTLE|
It turned out to be a “Bonnie” day and forecast for a whole week of warm and sunny. A big change from the last week. Two more days and I get dropped in Glasgow for 6 days Rest and Recuperation. Now in Elgin and our last dinner together as a group.

The meal was OK and we finished it with song before bedtime.
