Inverness, Loch Ness and the North East Highlands

The Forest in the City

Ascent: unknown
Duration: 35 minutes

Walk 2: Craig Phadrig

While Emma has a well deserved lie-in, I slipped out this morning for a final walk before we head to the station. Though I remarked yesterday that Inverness isn't surrounded by high hills, it does have a few elevated spots. Craig Phadrig is one of them: a steep-sided dense wood rising to 172 metres, capped with an old hill fort.

There was nobody around, and on the route I found myself face-to-face with a deer.

I love our long walks, but a short trip like this reminds me well that you don't have to go far to find serenity.

Time for breakfast. Then home.
