          This hotel was beautiful. The breakfast is phenomenal with waffles and a large variety of spread. Well worth the money. Staff were wonderful and helpful too.

          Convenient location, close to the centre. Had to spend our first night there as there was no availability at the hotel we had booked for the 2 following days, but it was ok for the money. No problem to leave our bags locked at a designated place, after checking out for a few hours. The Indian restaurant on the basement was very good, too.

          This morning, the group chipped in to take a ferry across the island rather than going back via the bridge we came over on. We made our way down to the Glenfinnan Viaduct in time to see the Jacobite steam train go across it. This train is famous for being used as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. The viaduct itself is situated in a …

We drove a bit further along the loch and managed to find a great view of the lake. We then drove back through Inverness and on to Edinburgh vis a small town for dinner. We found their house easily and they were both still waiting up for us, despite it being nearly 11pm. We chatted for a bit and then went to sleep in a super com ...

          ... We haven't explored the local area yet, except for travelling into town twice by bus.

          As we travelled from the station towards the flat by taxi, we passed a theatre with a big banner outside advertising a show by stand-up comedian Dara O'Braian. The dates were for tonight and tomorrow. We have seen him on a lot of shows, and enjoy his work, so we resolved to come straight back into town to enquire about tickets. When we did, there were still plenty left, and the ...

          We passed the "One O'Clock Gun", which is a lot bigger than you would imagine, to the National War Museum. We didn't stay too long in the museum, just a quick look around and watched video to get an understanding of Scottish military ...
