    Nice family holiday

    We stayed at the Culloden Estate in May of 2012. We are a family of 5 with two young children and an infant. We stayed in one of the family rooms. The room included one king bed and one single bed. Not ideal for a family with more than one child. The room was comfortably arranged and the beds were soft with down duvets. The bathroom was a bit tight with an elevated bathtub, again, not ideal for young children. Unfortunately, we stayed during a heat wave and our room was roasting hot. The family rooms are located in the addition built onto the original castle. It was not equipped with air conditioning so needless to say it was very uncomfortable. We had a garden view room so the afternoon sun soaked our room. Even with the curtains closed and two fans (graciously provided by the staff) it was hot at night and difficult to sleep.

    The family room we were provided with was on the second floor of the addition. It was not convenient to get to with a stroller. From the main building you take an elevator or stairs then down another hallway. The addition does not have an elevator so up another two flights of stairs to the room. The last day of our stay we discovered a door from the dining room (in the main building) that opened up directly onto our second floor. It would have been very useful to know of this passage so we could have avoided all the stairs.

    Regardless of the logistical difficulties and hot room, the hotel was very nice. It delivers an excellent full breakfast every morning. The gardens and surrounding grounds are lush and beautiful. We enjoyed walking the grounds and letting the children stretch their feet. The staff was courteous and helpful. It is within walking distance to the small downtown but make sure to take your walking shoes.

    I would recommend the Culloden, especially to guests without children. If you do take children ask for a room that is easily accessible for strollers.

    ... along with the help of family and friends. It was a long time in the preparation, but well worth it, as we raised 200!! Thanks to everyone who came and gave donations, bought from the stall or even gave suggestions and encouragement. I had a great time and all the help I was given is extremely appreciated!

    The next fundraiser was on the weekend after the coffee morning, and was by far the most exhausting one to date (including the marathon baking for a previous ...

    ... in the middle of sculptor" (or something similar) so he spelt sculptor SCUL?TOR. These draw the viewer to ask “what are all the dead posts for?” and the answer is they provide anchors harboring booms of wood curing in the water for shipbuilding purposes. An additional important industry was linenen for sails and also rope for sailing ship rigging and brick manufacturing warehouses are beautiful and converted condominiums nowadays.

    ... a look at the murals depicting the angst of the conflict that Northern Ireland was immersed in for forty odd years. The "Troubles" was the modern period of conflict although the the roots of the conflict reach much farther back in history than I have time to discuss here. Have a look at at our photos and comments for more insight. The ride was very educational as well as thought provoking. Donna and I continue to have discussions about the impact the tour had on ...

    Today we drove to Belfast - didn't take long at all and was a reasonable drive even in the rain. I thought that the GPS had died - but with careful resetting thanks to a bobby pin it is now working again and hopefully will keep working for the rest of the time we need it! We saw the titanic display today as well as walking through Belfast in the rain - a good afternoon ...
