Scenes Of Inverness, 2012 Scottish Open

I don't think I've quite adequately captured the lovely setting that is Inverness during the Scottish Open, but I can highly recommend this as a great base for someone visiting this area to see Dornoch, Castle Stuart, Nairn, Lossiemouth, Fortrose, Rosemarkie and the many other underrated courses (some mentioned by Gil Hanse in our Q&A). And for non-golfers, you are at the hub of many great sightseeing and outdoor sporting activities as Inverness is the gateway to the Highlands.

You'll find plenty of outstanding Bed and Breakfasts (I highly recommend the centrally located Craigside Lodge), numerous fine restaurants of all varieties and one fantastic pub that was a hub for golf fans (Castle Tavern).

Included here are scenes of the Inverness Castle, Castle Stuart and city:

Geoff: These photos have great clarity and color? Either you have some great new equipment or some type of photoshop. Please tell.

Its patented Geoff Shackelford technology--an company secret, all of which has undergone rigorous testing in both the Santa Monica and La Habra offices of Geoff

My camera was mocked by the gallery today! Go figure.

I'm using a Canon S100 and running the photos through Snapseed, an app for the desktop or phones.

I like the photos, but why the need for the app. Sometimes I feel like I am looking at a miniature model of the scene.

Great photos, Geoff...I like the "Free Wi Fi" sign in the window of the pub...

Great photos Shack (and generous tone!). Plus, you are right - Inverness is truly a Scottish gem. A wonderful place those up camp for a Scottish golf trip
