TripAdvisor Reviews Clifton House Nairn
Travel Blogs from Nairn
Had a bit of a sleep in today and awoke to snow on the mountains across the Loch, pretty speccy. After an excellent breakfast and a couple of teas we headed off on an hour cruise on the Loch Ness. The scenery was perfect and I was the only one to venture onto the "uppers". We got back had another brew and headed to Urquart Castle for a bite of lunch then a look around the ruins.
