Scotland Day 3 { City of Inverness & Drumossie Hotel }

One of the amazing parts of our trip was that we were able to see a lot of the East coast of Scotland. After a few days spent in Edinburgh, we made a 3-4 hour drive North to the city of Inverness and stayed at the Drumossie Hotel. We drove through beautiful valleys and enjoyed many stops along the way to take in the amazing scenery and the fresh air.

After a long day of driving, it was nice to arrive to a nice hotel where we had a really delicious dinner. This was one of the best meals that I had while in Scotland. I had sea trout filet, with crushed potatoes, buttered samphire*, watercress veloute, tomato and chorizo, topped with a white crab wonton.

{ A close-up. Samphire is the green vegetable which didn’t have much of a taste but was crunchy and worked well with the trout }

{ Steak and fries. The fries (or should I say, ‘chips’) were really good }
