Heading north today, up into the Scottish highlands. There is lots of driving today - I'm glad because I'm feeling quite tired. I've been sleeping well, just had two late nights... I am 1000% happy I brought my pillow. It was probably the smartest item I chose to bring... Sure it takes up a bit of room, but I haven't gotten a sore neck or shoulders …
Perfect weather. The sun is shining. Barely a cloud in the sky. It's fresh, but no wind...
Struie Hill - photos
Falls of Shin - not very big, but still nice. Had to try to beat the next bus load of oldies onto the path to get down the hill...
Ullerpool - old seaside fishing village (which apparently has the best fish and …
Scottish Highlands. A round trip today through the highlands via Ullapool where we stopped for Fish and Chips. Really Good. Lots of pretty scenery. Late this arvo went to Loch Ness. Boat ride out onto the Loch to find Nessy but no luck. Dinner at Loch Ness - a good day. I have to stop eating - everytime we turnaround they r offering more food OMG …
Today's first stop was in St. Andrews, which is the most gorgeous place ever! I think part of its beauty was that we were there early in the morning, and just the lighting made everything beautiful! The bus dropped some people off at the golf museum, but the rest of us non-golf fans were dropped off further away, at the ruins of an old Abbey. The …
So we were off to the North today, a departure of 8am or a bit before scheduled for today. Breakfast doesn't take as long as they have scheduled in for it, so we went down to breakfast last, scoffed some food and was still on the bus by 7.5am. We had our good seats from the rotation of 2 forward on the left hand side and 2 back on the right.. …

Historical Traveler Reviews Ben Wyvis Hotel Strathpeffer
Booked this hotel for part of a trip with German friends and could not have made a better choice. Rooms were comfortable with great showers. Staff were highly attentive and food was good. Even the bar was reasonably priced given that we were captive customers. Unfortunately we had only one night in this hotel!!
Great Hotel would go back any time
Stayed at the hotel for two nights can't fault the hotel. Rooms were clean and modern, staff very helpful and friendly and the food was great.
Wouldn't go back
A recent tour included four nights at this hotel. The lounge and dining room were attractive, service was excellent and prompt. However, the beds were impossible for sleeping. The mattresses seemed new, but the springs are barely covered with fabric making for a lumpy and stabbing surface. I managed about one to two hours of sleep per night. Others expressed similar experience. Our stay was divided into one night here, two nights away, then two nights here, so we were staying in different rooms. As far as we could tell, all the mattresses were of similar quality.
We have just returned home from our stay at this hotel and what can we say ?Lovely bedroom shower curtain needing a good clean or replaced .Reception staff friendly but that is where it ended .We booked our table for dinner on arrival 1st night when we went to dining room at booked time was told we would have to wait a few minutes which ended up being 35 minutes. 2nd night we again booked table for dinner and again on time we arrived and was told by a member of staff the table would be a few minutes which this time turned into 1 hour .Only after asking twice when a table would be ready were we shown to a table We suffered all this only to find the food of a poor quality and bland. The soup tasted as if it was from a packet and generally poor all round meals (TDH menu). We paid a higher rate than others in the hotel and still had to pay for our overpriced wine whilst having to wait for our meals. The entertainment was good but had the feel of a retirement home.We stay in hotels all over the country 35-40 weeks of the year and can assure you there are better and cheaper hotels elsewhere- we will not be back
We had 3 single rooms at £55 pppn. One room had a lovely view and was totally refurbished (115). Room 123 was also rotally refurbished but looked onto roofs. My room 132 had been partially refurbished (bathroom horrible) with other bedroom windows as views. My point is surely the room rate should be lower especially in room 132 where I did not have the same location and facilities??? I have put this to the hotel - and await their comments.
Staff were excellent, food great and varied, entertainment - not my cup of tea.
Would I go back??? Yes but I would request a room with a view.
The grounds to this hotel are smart and pleasant. Our room overlooked the gardens and valley beyond - beautiful! the room was large with a huge bed (singles bolted together) and the bathroom looked to have been updated recently.
Well kept Hotel
A well presented hotel in a beautiful location, hotel was clean and seemed freshly decorated, room was fair size but ours unfortunatly over looked a roof with verry little veiw, entertainment was very much aimed at the older customer, The international Caberet atist was more intersted in playing on the fruit machine! food was poor for the quality of the hotel, mixed veg potato croquets etc, we only ate there on first night at £18 each, and ate out rest of the stay.
A beautiful old building set in its own superb landscaped gardens. The hotel is wonderfully decorated inside in all areas and it even has its own cinema. All the staff were friendly and helpfull and made us feel like we were their top priority. The food was delicious and plenty of it. There is a rumor that they are going to add a swimming pool and spa to the hotel, when that is done there will be no better hotel in our opinion.
Nice, older hotel in the highlands of Scotland. The staff was very polite and professional, and were helpful in makings us feel welcome. The rooms were a little small and not much a a view, but comfortable. The dinning room served good food, but the service left a lot to be desired. Rude wait staff, and they were never around if you needed anything extra.
Superb Stay at Ben Wyvis Hotel
