... 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 ...
... from all around the world, it was a bit depressing to see so many animals stuffed & mounted - a real eye opener. After that we went and looked around the castle - like a lot of places you aren't allowed to take photos inside, they want you to buy the book ( and we did ). The castle is still owned by the family, that shows how much money is still in the family, normally they hand the properties over to the national trust because they can't afford to keep running them
... 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 ...
... homes, B&B's, and offices for sale or rent suggesting that the economy is hurting. For a tourist oriented economy Inverness is sorely lacking in decent restaurants and cafes.
The outcome of this is on both nights we scrounged up some pre-cooked chicken, cucumber, carrots, baguettes, ham and cheese from the local Tesco supermarket. We ...
... the other. This led into a large room where a video reenactment of the battle was projected onto all four walls so that visitors could experience it taking place all around them. The last room had an impressive collection of Jacobite era artifacts and a live role player describing what it was like to be part of the Royal Army at the time. Last but certainly not least, the GPS-triggered audio tour led us across the battlefield ...

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.
