I stopped back into Timberbush to book the following day's Loch Ness tour, then took my first taxi of the trip to the Botanic Gardens - one of the few attractions open into the early evening.

The gardens at Botanic are fine and were very relaxing, but I think they are oversold. They don't stand out as a world class attraction. 

One nice thing about going late in the day - the admission to the greenhouses was free. Admission to the rest of the gardens is free all of the time.

The Botanic was fairly close to my hotel. Walking back, I stopped at the Palkhi Tandoori Restaurant which the Manns had enjoyed on Friday. It was a nice contrast to the Prince of India. The staff was friendly and the food good (though a bit slow). The Peshwari Nan was wonderful!

Then a short walk back to the hotel, once again stopping to use the Internet and pick up a bottle of cider for the evening.
