They have enjoyed a typically dreich morning “Nessie Hunting”. A cruise from the Clansman Hotel took the group to Urquhart Castle. The tour guide was excellent and kept the group in good spirits with song and stories. These exchange students will leave our Scottish shores with fantastic stories and memories to last a life time.
