INVERNESS. Saturday Night Drinks In Some Bars.

The Black Isle Bar. A very individual bar shall we say. They also have rooms, both here and across the road. Also the pizza meu is a wonderous thing. I seem to remember drinking Spidermonkey and Red Kite, or at least I think I did.

A week or so ago I was up in the Highland capital that is Inverness, the meeting point where the River Ness tumbles out of the hills and into the waters of the Moray Firth. The sun was still beating down but the air was now beginning to catch a cooling edge as autumn creeps stealthily in. In the evening a walk about the city centre by sheer coincidence took in a couple of the bars and pubs. Not quite certain how that came about, just one of those serendipitous things that happen when you aren’t looking I suppose.

Mc Gregor’s also appeared on the route. A venue for the live music and the sort of elegant food and considered beers that go with that type of establishment.

The Castle Tavern also received a visit. Over by Inverness Castle ( naturally), compact but with a veranda facing out towards the castle and the River Ness. Does food too.

The Phoenix Ale House. A fine selection of the whiskies to tempt the appreciative drinker.
