530am - woke up just as w pulled into the railway station at Perth. We have been travelling on the Caledonian express overnighter from London to In bhir nis. I think i woke upat the best time the scenery out the window was just magical. NDB - The sleeper train was great way to get the 11hrs to Inverness. Although no cheaper than flying we didn't …
We woke up just as the flight was coming into the NW of Scotland, about 11am UK time. Unfortunately there were no good photos as there clouds were too thick below. Breakfast was a bacon roll and fruit. We were delayed getting in due to traffic and then another delay on the ground as our slot at the gate was already in use. In the end we got off 45 …
... up super early and left for our flight home. Naomi and Tim’s train was a little later so they stayed for a few more hours.
All in all it was an excellent holiday, where I learnt to snowboard and realised that the tap water in London is foul. (Scottish water is pure and wonderful tasting).
Oooh and also I forgot to say that Mark went on a mini shopping spree and bought two jumpers. Wooly ones. Full of scottish sheepie wool.

... the highlands coastal town Mallaig we stopped for a it drink at the mission cafe, literally the only place open in the port orientated town. Driving back to Fort William we found a chain of white sand beaches in Arisaig that seemed very out of place, but were stunning.
Going to the Inverlocy castle by Fort William was a mission in the rain, but yet another amazing historic building that really took you back in time. Dan ended the day by falling ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Inverness
My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Holiday Inn Express Inverness during May. The hotel is a short drive out of town in a new shopping/business precinct. Our room was a good size, very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was new and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful when we needed directions or assistance. The hotel itself is ideal for people with a car or their own transport as ample parking is available. Next door is the Snow Goose pub which has excellent meals. Close by within walking distance is a huge shopping centre, petrol/gas station and Burger King and Pizza Hut restaurants. There is also a movie cinema in the same complex - if these things are important to you.
Overpriced as can stay at four star hotels cheaper
Hotel is overpriced for what you get, you can stay cheaper at all the local four star hotels - ie marriot, rocpool, thistle. A bit out of time and although comfortable the staff are quite rude and dont seem to care about the customer experience and just want to sell rooms to anyone. If in town again would stay elsewhere
The service and the friendlness of the staff was exactly what I was looking for. Superb location and clean rooms, this was a great experience. Maybe a bit more than i would usual pay but still very good.
Un lugar magnífico
El servicio y un personal tan agradable eran exactamente lo que andaba buscando. Ubicación genial y habitaciones limpias, fue una experiencia magnífica. Tal vez algo más caro de lo que suelo pagar pero muy bueno.
We initially booked for 3 nights. The hotel rooms are small but you have everything you need; they are also very clean. Many items in the continental breakfast, it opens very early and that helps you when you are going on long day trips. Although it is outside the city, it is close enough to walk to the centre; if you take a taxi, you will be there in 3 minutes.
Very clean, very friendly, very handy location - very good!
A great little gem of a hotel - expensive by express standards, we paid £85 for the room, some paid 90+
But it is so well placed just outside inverness (3 minutes or 15 minutes walk) and next to a fair little pub with a good menu and near a huge Tesco (one of 3 in the small city) where you can get a takeaway and nuke it in the hotel microwave.
10 miles away from Lock ness and near enough to the jewels og Brodie castle, Elgin and countless malt distillery's.
Good clean rooms
good efficient staff
and a pleasant stall all round, could have spent longer there!
We booked our rooms through priorityclub[--], the Holiday Inn frequent stay program. Upon arrival, the hotel could not find our reservation. Fortunately, I noticed that they had a sign-in sheet on the counter for Priority Club customers, and our name was on it. It turned out that for some reason the confirmation # in their system was different from the one we had on our printout from their online system (no one knows why). That resolved, we checked into two sunny, spotless, comfortable rooms overlooking the parking lot with a distant view of the blue Moray Firth through some trees. Standard rooms have two twin beds that cannot be pushed together to make one big bed (we asked). The hotel has rooms with big beds, but they were full and had no rooms of that type available. It was a warm night, and with the window open we had some noise (someone had left their poor dog in a car in the parking lot, and he barked for hours). The Snow Goose restaurant in the hotel's parking lot has an American feel to it, but the food and service are Scottish, and we enjoyed our meal. The HIX's breakfast room is large and the cold buffet includes cereal, breads, yogurt, and juice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel is quite far from the historic, interesting center of town; you have to drive there. All in all, it's a nice place to stay, but at $160 (80pd) for a twin bed room, it's rather expensive.
Great hotel loved the peace and quiteness
This is a great place to stay for a nice break-away.Very clean and friendly, although it is just bed and continental breakfast, it makes a pleasant change from the usual English breakfast you normally get when holidaying in Inverness. there are plenty choices to choose from.This is a pet friendly hotel, which is good for people who like to take their pet on holiday, we take our well behaved dog.
The hotel is quite central for eating out (I can reccomend the Snow Goose Inn ) straight across from The Holiday Express Inn
Friendliest hotel min Inverness
I had family come to visit last week and decided to put them up at the Express by Holiday Inn because we were packed out.
The hotel is situated near the retail park and a very busy road but my family said they had a sound sleep and how nice and clean the rooms where.
They had a good hearty breakfast in the morning and said they got great value for money.
Would recommend it to anyone, will definately use it again.
Loved the Holiday Inn
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. A very pleasant experience. The staff from the manager down were extremely helpful and pleasant.
The rooms maintained to a very high standard considering the rates are so reasonable.
Overall opinion was very good and I would gladly go back there anytime.
