Barbara Grant returned from a short trip to Orkney which she had visited with family friends.
She provided a short talk on her experiences there with recommendations on what to see, what not to see and, most stridently, where not to stay in Drumnadrochit!
Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness, the Italian Chapel and St Magnus Cathedral all got the thumbs up.
She even managed to sneak in a wee folk singing evening in the local hostelry and a visit to Sheila Fleet's famous jewellery factory.
All in all, a pretty jam-packed two days on the island.
