Preston pans was the last battle before culloden. The battlefield is just outside Inverness. Before going there I always believed it was the Scots against the English. Far from it there are a lot of English Regiment names on both sides. My wives family are all living in that area. Cross the Keswick bridge in Inverness. As you go over Inverness Cally Thistle football ground is on your right. Terry Butcher managed them for some years. Over the bridge and over to the right is the Black Isle. Rosemarkie..Cromarty.. Fortrose..real highland country. If you’re ever up that way the world in places has passed it by. Dingwall another interesting place a lot of connection here to the 2nd World War and home to Ross County football club. Here Enders the history and geography lesson
