This is a story of when travel goes wrong. Sometimes you go somewhere, only to find that you can't do what you wanted to do. Such as the case in Skene's House. It's advertised all over the city as an exhibit of life in the 18th century, complete with a clothing display and a tea house. I was pretty excited about it. Then, I found this sign on the front door. It's closed for the next year.
The day before I had been wandering Inverness, and the tourist department had sent me to the House of Fraser, to see a kilt making exhibition. I was terribly excited about that one, too. However, once I got there I was informed that the exhibit was closed, also for a year.
