Travel Blogs from Inverness
From Oban ......diagonally north east across Scotland, through Inverness, into the REAL Highlands, and up to Dornoch where we lived 1957-1965. Quite a long trip by UK standards. I'll never know how our parents survived the one-day drive each summer from Dornoch down to Skipness in Kintyre .....sometimes towing a caravan, and transporting a dog, two ...
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 ...

... Greenwich. The weather was glorious, and the chap giving us a historical commentary of landmarks along the way was a charming crafty cockney :-) who clearly knew his stuff.
We had an amazing lunch and a pint (I was chuffed to find that they had Aspall's cider on tap) at the Gypsy Moth. We lingered there in the dappled sunshine under the shade of a tree discussing our afternoon plans.
Greg and John struck off up the hill to the observatory while ...
... into Columbia Hotel on the bank of the Ness River which had views across to the castle on the other side. The whole hotel seemed very structurally unsound as our floor and roof was the shape of a 'U' and nothing sat flat. With this in mind we decided it best to spend as little time in the room as possible and headed out to find a pub for dinner. On our entrance to the city we had spotted an awesome little pub tucked up ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHighlander Hostel Inverness
The roughest hostel we found in scotland. Apart of the central position, the staff was quite rude, the rooms basic, the bathroom dirty (we booked a room with 8 bunks and private bathroom. It hasn't been cleaned before our arrival...) and they just gave us blankets at the reception, so we had to make the beds and see pillows and materass that were very bad
