After another lovely breakfast and a chat to the Guest House owners we decided we would leave the car at home and walk in to town which is about 15 minutes normally without snow.
Luckily we walked outsied the door and a bus came so we decided this might be a better option so headed to the centre of town. Had a wander through the Victorian …
Started our morning with a leisurely breakfast in our room which was very enjoyable. I can't belvie the amount of food, we didn't manage to finish it all but had a go.
We then left Ullapool for Inverness, plan for the day was to stop at Fort George along the way and all was going well until we missed the turn seeing a turning spot ahead …
... The Castle and the loch were extremely vast and peaceful. The loch itself is immense and looks quite spectacular next to the lush green grass and surrounding mountains. Anyway, after our zen loch experience, we boarded a train from Inverness to Aviemore, where we were met by Naomi and Tim!
They walked us to our accommodation which was a lovely little cottage with all the mod cons. I cannot stress how great out accommodation was on ...
... for nothing. We passed through every check point without so much as a second glance. The most attention that I got was from a pat down in security. The lady felt all of my layers, looked at me funny, I shrugged and she let me pass. Our plane was a prop plane and we did have to sit with the bags at our feet because they did not fit in the overhead compartments. No big deal. Not even 30 minutes later and we found ourselves in Scotland.
We decided to rent ...

Stirling is such a lovely little place. Lots of historic buildings and a castle built on the rock face of a hill. We were well impressed with the Stirling bridge, a narrow stone built structure which boasts so much history. The William Wallace memorial was really well done. We climbed the spiral staircase of the tower, along the way learning of William Wallaces' legacy.

Historical Traveler Reviews Avalon Guest House Inverness
We stayed at the avalon guest house for 4 nights,2 adults 2 children and our little dog came too.
We arrived quite late after a long journey and had a warm welcome from the owners.The guest house is warm welcoming and very friendly, with a good hearty breakfast, which is highly recommended :)
The bedrooms were clean and tidy and nicely decorated.
All in all we definately would stay again if we ever get to inverness again.

Enjoyed the Avalon
We enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Guest House, as it was clean and comfortable. It is situated only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. On arrival was provided with a map and recommendations for the local restaurants, which was very helpful.
Would not hesitate to stay there again on a return trip and would recommend it to friends and family.
Excellent accomodation and hospitality
you couldnt do any better for the price than to stay at the avalon guest house,it is spacious and very comfortable.The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. I would give it 10 out of 10
Our stay at lovely Avalon Guest house was 5 nights Sept 2007.
This was our first visit to Scotland and what made our visit was the Avalon Guest House.It is situated in a nice area and only 10 mins.from Loch Ness.Our room was excellent and had everthing in it you would get if you stayed in a 5* hotel.The breakfast was a delight,fresh fruit salad,cereal,fresh fruit etc. and the cooked breakfast was not kept under those awful heated lamps that a lot of places use but was cooked fresh as you ordered it.An absolute delight to start your day.
Best guest house in Inverness!
After many trips to Inverness, buisness and pleasure, I can honestly say this is the BEST guest house we have stayed in, in Inverness. We had 2 nights in Avalon and couldn't have been made to feel any more welcome, just a 10 minute drive to Loch Ness or a short walk into the city centre, Brilliant!
and I must say Bradleys freashly cooked breakfast was great too, just what we needed for a day walking around the loch.
Next time we visit it will definatly be here that we stay.
Thanks Jo and Bradley
We booked our stay at Avalon direct on their website and we really made a great choice! This was the best Guest house we stayed in whilst on our trip around Scotland!
My husband & I were decided to make a weekend break out of a semi work trip & booked into Avalon at the last minute. This was the best decision we made as although the weather was inhospitable the welcome we got at Avalon more than made up for it.
We didn't find Nessie but we did find a priceless gem!
We are a family of 4, and have stayed in Avalon Guest House during 6/23 - 6/25/2007. The guest house has new owners and they certainly were very helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay as pleasent as possible - despite the fact it was a last minute call. Our stay turned out to be great! Breakfast has a variety of offerings one is not likely to find in most B&B, including fresh fruits, cerials as well as a full cooked English meal. Our room was very clean and spacious and easily accomodated 4 persons. It had a nice size bathroom, with all the required extras of a bathroom kit, as well as a nice complimentary basket. Complementary WiFi Internet access was available as well.
