It has been a cool and dry week and after gathering supplies in Inverness today we fell into the Dores Inn on the way home for a bite to eat. Surprisingly it was nearly full up with many different languages being spoken so we headed for the room out the back which looks onto the terrace facing Loch Ness. The tables were nicely set out with fresh flowers on the table tops and the staff were very friendly. There were several tasty items on the Specials Board although we could not face the crispy roast duck as there were plenty of wild ducks outside. We chose the the fish and chips in a beer batter which was very tasty and went down a treat. Had to pass all the ducks on the way to the car park but we were able to hold our heads up high and did not feel at all guilty.
