On the move again. We had seen a lot of the area around Ullapool during our stay but had actually not spent any time in the town itself so this was our first port of call before hitting the road. It is really little more than a couple of streets which line the port but is very pretty. The harbour is full of fishing vessels and the area surrounded by mountains. We walked up and down the street, looked at the small number of shops, some preparing ...
... be using English pound notes. Easy stuff for a red neck from Powell River...not! Later in the afternoon we walked to the small loch near Lynn and Paul's followed by a bike ride around Loch An Eilen. Lots of fun! Afterwards it was back for another gourmet feast of venison, haggis, scallops and celeriac (celery root) and veggies and of course wine. Incredible! To top off this perfect day in Scotland my bag arrived by courier tonight. ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bunchrew House Hotel Inverness
The best hotel in Inverness
I was married at the Bunchrew Hotel in 1994 and the setting and staff were fantastic. We booked the whole hotel for my family from Glasgow and to this day we still have people saying it was the best wedding ever. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic break and we are hoping to stay again this year to celebrate our 10th anniversary!!!!!!
Wonderful unforgettable weekend at Bunchrew
We had an absolutely magnificent wedding at Bunchrew House in August 2003. The setting was perfect, the staff very accomodating and professional, the meals delicious, and the rooms were wonderful. A truly fairytale wedding. We had so much fun at Bunchrew and highly recommend it!
Fantastic wedding at Bunchrew House
We held our small, intimate wedding at the Bunchrew House and it was a fantastic experience. We were looking for a venue with a country manor house feel and we found it at the Bunchrew. We spent months planning the wedding through phone and email. The attention to detail by all the staff when the day actually came was incredible. Every detail was handled with utmost care from table setting, personalised menus, special diets, to ensuring that everything ran smoothly on schedule. All the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The setting of the hotel is lovely and our particular bedroom had a romantic view of the Beauly Firth (as did most of our guests). I highly recommend this hotel!
Perfection by the sea
What a great place to stay, fantastic food, great service from Anne, Angus and Marion, a superb comfy bed - all beside the sea. The perfect place to stay for a few days to forget the pressures of the city. You've got to try it.Alison and John Clyme
Enjoyed the experience
Having just held a family wedding here I would recommend this hotel without reservation. Looking for air conditioning,window screens and lifts would seem inappropriate in a building that in some parts is several hundred years old. I found staff happy to carry luggage upstairs.As a family we enjoyed our weekend.Several members of our party are international travellers and found little to complain about.
I would suggest that tea and coffee making facilities should be in the bedrroms and not just available on request. We also felt that the breakfast was a little greasy!! However full marks to the head chef for his innovative and well presented food - well deserving of his AA Rosettes.
We only stayed 3 nights, and ate in the restaurant on 2 of those evenings. Had we stayed longer the limited menu would have been frustrating, but as it was we thoroughly enjoyed both meals, which were delicious and well prepared. The service was good, although I guess some Americans might consider it "slow".
Not worth the money.
Bunchrew's setting is indeed fabulous. We found the staff to be cordial and our spacious room on the top floor was pleasant. For a price tag of over $300 per night I would expect a comfortable bed, attentive service, window screens (or air conditioning), and an overall feeling of being pampered. We had to request in-room tea and coffee, and breakfast was awful. We had hoped to sample some of the famous Angus beef at Bunchrew's restaturant one night, but it was not on the menu.
To pay $60 for Thai stir-fry is outrageous. Surely there are other places near Inverness where you could get what you pay for!
It was ok
Bunchrew House is overrated. We had to walk up several flights of stairs to get our luggage to the room. The room itself was mediocre. We had dinner one evening and the food was terrible. The bread was rock hard and the service was not great. The grounds itself were ok but nothing like the pictures represented on websites.
I visited Bunchrew House in May, 2003. I was very disappointed. Our room was small and very hot. The heat was on. We ask for the heat to be turned off and the air on. We were told the heat was off. We had to sleep with the window open and with no screen. The dinner menu is a set price of 38 pounds and with no selections. You couldn't even get a salad. We ended up driving into town. Remenber this is May and they were still burning the fireplace. The whole place was like an oven. The dining room was very hot. We only ate breakfast and it was awful. The staff was unfriendy and stiff. Everywhere else we went we had a great time, wonderful service and friendly people. Stay somewhere else and save your money . This place is NOT worth the money or time.
Don't drive past this little jewel!
I just wanted to sing the praises of Bunchrew. I was married there in the summer of 2001 and teh hotel was great. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and the staff were fantastic. Did their job without getting in peoples way and looke dafter the guide dog that accompanied a guest really well. The rooms are gorgeous and I highly recommend the Lovat Suite with its fabulous four poster!!!
The hotel is right on the edges of the water and the grounds are perfect for a quick walk to build up an appetite, or thirst.
I have heard nothing but good reports from other people who have been for an event or just a meal.
a friend of mine is getting married there next year and I am really looking forward to going back and sinking into the chairs in drawing room.
