The Melville Monument – St Andrew Square Edinburgh
I got a train into Inverness today, for some present shopping and geocaching.
One of the geocaches led me to a landmark I’d not seen before – The General’s Well – even though we regularly walk this footpath.

I stopped off on the way to Aviemore to buy Jeremy lunch. The pub we like, The Footlights, has had yet another make over!
The remains of the Windermere Steamer The Swift. Read more.
I visited here as there is a geocache nearby.
To avoid the Ambleside Christmas shopping crowds, we found a quite cafe, The Giggling Goose, where we had an excellent lunch.
However I just spotted on Twitter that it is Christmas Market weekend in Lincoln, so these shopping crowds do not look so bad now!
Although it was a grey, chilly day, I walked a good length of the coastal path around Morecambe today. I scored a few geocaches and found an out of the way spot for lunch and a brew up.
