... for winter, before drinking coffee in the one main hotel. Richard, couldn't help pointing out that while we were drinking coffee, 3 men were already into the whiskey at 10.30am. I think he was jealous. Just 12 miles out of town on the road to Beauly we made our next stop at the Corrieshallock Gorge. This is a narrow, steep sided chasm which is about 45 metre high and has an amazing waterfall cascading through it. The walk around the gorge ...
... at their publishing business taking inventory of books coming in and preparing orders for outgoing (making money) shipments. After an hour and a couple of screw ups, we were fired. Just in time, preventing Paul from declaring bankruptcy. Whoever said foresters could count? After lunch we headed into downtown Aviemore for some shopping (Marks idea) and to pick up some Scottish pounds. They don't use Euros and when we go to England ...
SO this weekend was crazy. Got up at 4 am Friday to jet off to Scotland both to see my wonderful roommates and best friends Isabel and Emily and to casually attend a ball in Emily's hometown, Angus. This was my first Ryan Air experience, which is important because its the most ridiculous way to travel. 1. They don't have seat assignments, so when everyone started literally running on the tarmac from the terminal exit to the plane, I was a ...
Today we drive to the Isle of sky, First we have a nice little breakfast to get us going. Then off to the loch ness visitor center . After a look at the center we are off again. I believe Ady drove first as I think he needed a break from yesterday's experience. The drive was beautiful . We stopped for picture ops . Julie did a wonderful job talking pictures of Jeff and I on the trip up to Skye. Jeff did ...
... stone! It was amazing to see this place even if it was terribly sad to hear about the men that died there!
After Culloden we were on a roll so we decided to head out to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Loch Ness is actually bloody huge! But sadly by the time we got there the castle was closed. Not so bad though, we got a scenic few pictures of the ruins and then since the bus wasn't coming back for two hours, we took ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Inverness Lochardil House Hotel
New extension is sensational
After staying at this hotel a while ago on business I returned recently to find that they have built a new accomadation wing. This new addition is of the highest standard and as a regular business traveller I have never be so impressed by the design, decoration and standard f finish.
This coupled with the usual friendly attentive staff and excellent food and drink make me think that this must be the business travellers destination of choice for Inverness.
Just back from a holiday in the highlands and stayed at this hotel, and I couldn't have been happier with the hotel itself, the bar and restaurant or the the very attentive staff. The hotel is in a great location as well so was the ideal base for our trips to local spots as well (the management staff provided some really good suggestions as well for outings in the local area). Will defintely be returning to this hotel when in the area in future.
I stayed in this hotel a few months back, on the recommendation of a friend. The setting is ideal: picturesque surroundings and not too far from the city centre. I was also impressed by how polite and helpfull the staff were. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.
Friendly staff, great food and good service
Stayed at this hotel on business about 1 month ago. It is everything I look for in a hotel when travelling on business, friendly staff, great food and good service . It is one of these hotels that are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that you have a good stay. All in all a great hotel and I would recommend Lochardil House to anyone. So much so that I will be taking my wife at some point in the new year.
A Perfect End to a Perfect Weekend.
I booked this amazing hotel as a birthday treat for my new fiance and I - another example of how using Trip Advisor paid off.
For my proposal, I wanted something picturesque and romantic - something that Lochardil House Hotel delivered in abundance. The hotel is a classic country house building but has every mod con you would expect from a modern hotel. The staff could not have done enough for me and helped me out a great deal with my preparations for my proposal. Dining was everything we could hope for - attention to detail and service from a very discreet staff made us feel a million pounds! The whole weekend was a wonderful experience for both of us.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel's experience - will definitely book a return visit.
Only good thing in Inverness
I have, through no fault of my own, found myself trapped in Inverness with work. I found this hotel using tripadvisor and I have been very happy with it: the rooms are great, the staff couldn't be more helpful and the food is brilliant.
Great Hotel, Lovely Staff, Would recommend to Everyone!!!
My husband and I stayed at this delightfully characteristic hotel for almost a week back in October and found it to be exceptional.
The hotel itself is a beautiful old house that had been converted and tastefully upgraded with modern facilities.
The staff were very attentive, helpful and extremely friendly and the management team kindly helped us with all our excursions and travel arrangements.
The meals available in the delightful conservatory were exquisite and the wine selection was very impressive meaning we rarely ate anywhere else!
We also noticed they are expanding the hotel so next time we may take all of our friends with us!!
Would Definitely Stay Again!
Was very surprised to read the previous review as we found this hotel to be the exact opposite!!
We stayed Ocotber 2005 and were not effected by the small amount of building work going on in the grounds.
Reception staff greeted us with a smile and were friendly at all times. The food was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff AND management!
Would highly recommend this hotel and am taking my wife back to celebrate our anniversary next year.
Manager is a very rude and unpleasent person. Avoid!!
We book to stay at the LOCHARDIL HOUSE HOTEL, but found the receptionist really could not care less and was not at all helpful. Our room had a strange and unpleasant smell and overlooked a small building site.
We spoke to the unhelpful receptionist who called the manager. He was aggressive, rude and the most unpleasant person We have met for a long time. He basically told us if there were no other rooms available and if I did not like it we should leave.
We put up with the smell and the building noise, which started about 8.00am, and left never to return.
There are plenty of other hotels in Inverness. DO NOT USE THIS ONE!
Stayed with a group of friends recently, everyone had a great time and the staff are to be congratulated on being so helpful and prefessional. We would have no reservations in recommending the Lochardil House Hotel!
