When i finally got to Inverness, I went into the bus terminal to get a map of the area. At that point though I was way too tired and didn't feel like trying to find my way to the hostel (Inverness Student Hotel). So I opted to take a cab ride instead.
The hostel itself was clean but very inconvenient. It didn't have any outlets in the rooms and only had two showers for at least 15 plus people. I was also assigned a top bunk in the room and there was no latter to get up onto the the bed. To add to this, the hostel was a little cold because one of the windows didn't even close properly! I got to meet a couple of the people on the tour that were assigned to the same room as myself. One of the gals in my room said that she was going to try and find the Tesco (local grocery store) to get some supplies for the following day, so I opted to go with her.
After a quick shower, then deciding that there is not point to try and sleep, I decided to meet up with the group at the restaurant downtown. During my walk, I manage to take a couple of pictures of Inverness, for instance, the Inverness castle that was just down the street of the hostel. The restaurant itself was really cozy and since I had eaten a sandwich at the hostel, I ordered a drink instead and sat with some girls from the tour group.
The one thing that I remember thinking about during my walk downtown, was how absolutely beautiful it was and that I remember feeling absolutely peaceful. The downtown area wasn't that busy because most of the shops were closed for the night, but it was definitely a charming town. It was a shame that I didn't opt to go to the town a little earlier; instead of staying in Edinburgh. Also that I was so tired and didn't feel like taking more pictures of the town.
Note to self, if I manage to ever get back to Scotland, go back to Inverness to explore the beautiful city!
