Looking over the Inverness Firth


Looking over the Inverness Firth, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Looking from the Eathie Road - just after Navity Farm towards Ardersier and Dalcross. And the Inverness Firth.

The number of people who will not believe that there is such a thing as the Inverness Firth is remarkable.

Here is what Wikipedia says about the Inverness Firth:-

"The Moray Firth is effectively two firths, the Inner Moray Firth, which was traditionally known as the Firth of Inverness, and the Outer Moray Firth which is more open North Sea water.
