The Royal Burgh of Dornoch

A travel blog entry by abercromby56


... unrestrained in the back, sitting on suitcases most likely, and the car packed to the rafters with summer holiday requirements!  Dornoch is famous for its championship links golf course, and the town prospers on the summer influx of golfers, particularly from the US. Many have built houses here, which they use for a few weeks each year, but that gets them ...

I felt as though I shouldn't walk on the green

Tuesday 1/7/14
Today we went to look at 'Royal Dornoch Golf Club' It was very impressive, I have never seen a golf course like it, I walked on the grass to take Matt's picture and I felt as though I shouldn't be walking on it, again it was a lovely little village, there are flowers everywhere in England & Scotland & Wales, the villages all have baskets of flowers hanging outside the shops and all along the High streets, it just looks lovely.
From there we ...

Inverness and the Scottish Highlands

A travel blog entry by jonathonsnell


... The first real town stop was in Pitlochry, some really nice small houses and scenery, then we went to the Queens View, photos don't really do the scenery justice.

Inverness was a smaller city but it still had a small castle and good views, we spent the night there and then started our journey back.

On the way back we passed by ...

The Fall of Foyers

A travel blog entry by lisaajane


... the Falls of Foyer and around.
So that's what we did.
We went to see the falls which were gorgeous! And talked heaps about travel, companions, gear, places we want to go, pretty much everything I talk about usually.
After the walk we sat and had a tea at a little cafe up near the end of the walk and wrote postcards. Sorry everyone at home, this one is going to M&S ...

Fawlty towers

... s it, 5 taps on the bar and only Stella was available. So with the decision made for me, Stella was on the cards . However, old mate felt it was necessary to then explain they didn't have the right glasses and the beer would go flat pretty quick. I replied that there was no need to worry about it staying in the glass long, as after this recent experience I needed to have a drink quickly. So my pint drained, meals arrived, knife and fork at the ready and I cut into the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rocpool Reserve hotel & Chez Roux Inverness

    Best place we've stayed in Scotland


    Just returned from a magical few days touring the north of Scotland. We checked into the very new Rocpool Reserve Hotel in Cuthduthel (?) Road, up past the castle anyway. We wanted to come here after reading all the great reviews, this was a return trip for us to Inverness and we had previously eaten in the very good Rocpool restaurant on the River Ness - we made the link that they may have the same owners and we were right.



    We had a fantastic impromptu night at this hotel after a week roughing it around the north of Scotland. We phoned up on spec and got a cheap room rate as the hotel was quiet that night. The room was wonderfully comfortable (especially after a tent) and I appreciated the wee touches, like the turn-down service. The bathrooms are huge and I'm a sucker for Molton Brown toiletries. Unfortunately our cheap room rate was negated by the fortune we spent in the restaurant (good, if a touch too adventurous at times) and the bar (fantastic cocktails!). I found this a great place to spend a night, the staff were friendly and professional. My only criticism would be the breakfast which as others have pointed out was a bit mean. But all in all a fab night.

    Great base for the highlands


    Well as all of the previous review say the hotel is fantastic.

    Perfect for a weekend of luxury!


    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rocpool from the 23/06-25/06 and had a fantastic weekend! We were also in Inverness for the Fat Boy Slim gig at Loch Ness and had a great time.

    Pure luxury


    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rocpool Reserve with friends on 24/06 and I honestly say that this hotel has completely put all other hotels ive seen in the shade.

    Lovely Room, but....


    My Wife and I stayed in the "Reserve" on the night of our Wedding. We booked the "decadence" room with Hot Tub on the private Patio. This room is downstairs from reception beneath the breakfast room. As other reviewers have stated, the rooms are gorgeous (please see attached photos) and the attention to detail is worthy of praise. I realise the Hotel is in its infancy but there were a few things that were off putting in the layout given the price bracket. Having worked at Turnberry and stayed at Gleneagles as well as the excellant "Howard" in Edinburgh, I feel qualified to nit pick if excellance is the goal.

    Oh My God!!!!!!!!!


    This place is a dream come true, and saved our Honeymoon from certain disaster! We had booked at another Hotel in Brora which turned out to be a nightmare with poor service, poor food and dirty/dusty rooms. We left before it turned our Honeymoon into a complete nightmare. We were recommended the Rocpool from another Hotel that had no rooms left. We were told they had a couple of rooms left and because of the late time for booking, we got a discounted rate for the one night. When we arrived, we were warmly greated and happily shown the two rooms, the first being a balcony equipped room that was stunning, having a huge double bath, and a lovely balcony view over the River. We liked it. But then we saw the second room... Slightly bigger, just as oppulent and tidy, but with a HUGE shower and, the clincher for me and my new wife, was the outdoor Jacuzzi. They had already turned it on and heated it up on the off chance we decided to stay. Everything about this place is just perfect, it turned our Honeymoon into a dream to remember. Pure comfort, bliss, awesome food, great value lunch at 2 courses for £10 which was awesome. Great room service, well equipped, friendly staff who always walked past and hello/good morning/good evening, breakfasts were a joy and Jeanelle was a star. We had such a great stay that we stayed for 5 nights. And at the same discounted rate. It was all the little things that just polished off our stay, the turning down of the beds (with the tablet laid on the bed) the moulton brown toiletries, the three sets of comfy pillows, that damn comfy and huge monstrosity of a matress, the lights being on when you get in at night, the list just goes on. I do not have enough words to explain it all. You need to see it to believe it. And we will be seeing it again. a booking will be made shortly for our aniversary next year. I cannot praise this place enough, and no I do not work for them and no I am not sponsored by them. I think it is all too common for people to complain and not praise now-a-days, but the staff at the Rocpool truly deserve praise for a wonderful experience. Well Done and Thank you.

    Lovely modern and friendly hotel


    We were invited to a wedding in Inverness and were told this was a lovely hotel to stay in while we were there and we were not disappointed. Called the hotel direct to enquire about the price of a room and was told £175 per night for the middle of the range room...found it on late rooms for £95 so we booked it. We were not disappointed. The hotel was small but very nice and modern. We stayed in room number eight and were not disappointed. Plasma screen tele/lovely bathroom with bath and separate shower/music playing in the bathroom/molton brown toiletries in the bathroom for your use. When we got back late from the wedding the cushions and throw had been pulled back for us and there was some scottish tablet left for us at the side of the bed. Overall a great hotel where the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Only disappointment was the free breakfast....continental (nice) but we had been looking forward to a fry up after our night out!!!!

    Best hotel in scotland including gleneagles


    having stayed in room 1 at the rocpool reserve on 11 may 06 with my girlfriend/colleague both of us agreed that it was the best room we have been in for 25 combined yrs staying at our companies expense. Wonderful attention to detail:

    emporer size bed, tassimo coffe/tea machine, digtal lcd tv. bose i-pod dock, moulton brown toiletries, double wet room shower, jacuzzi bath, free mineral water how can I go on. this hotel was amazing and I speak from 50+ nights per year for the last 15 years in hotels.

    *****+++ and I don't give this lightly

    Very quaint and peacfull


    We stayed here at Easter for a night in a family room. On arrival, we were shown to our room which was very cosy. It had a double bed, single bed and double sofa bed - with still room to navigate around the room! We received complimentary drinks (cola for the kids and a decanter of sherry for us adults). After a day of sight seeing, we retreated back to the hotel. We spent the night playing cards in front of a roaring coal fire in the "drawing room" which was full of lovely period furniture which was comfortable. It made a difference to sitting in a bar as the kids could join us. When they we tired, our room was adjacent so they went to bed whilst we had a few drinks. Lovely breakfast and lovely hospitality! We also received an easter egg on our door handle in the morning. Would definately go back for another stay.
