After the excitement of spending New Year's Eve among 80,000 strangers at a giant street party we decided to slow things sown a little and move at our own pace. First though - New Years Day at George and Isobel's. A friendly collection of family mingling for a few hours over some delicious food and drinks, after a lovely walk along Edinburgh's …
Off we go, again - around Skye and on to Inverness. We take off north from Portree, along more single track roads with passing places. Our first stop off was for The Storr, with weird rocks, including The Old Man of Storr. It looks like a man's face, laying on his back looking at the sky. Kind of like New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain before …
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 ...
Mark is starting to ripen as we begin day 2 in Aviemore without his luggage. If it doesn't show up today, he'll be off to the shops for some emergency rations like a three piece suit and Gortex jackets and perhaps some socks, underwear and toiletries. Just fill out this form and that form and keep your receipts and KlLM will be glad to cover your costs, if they're approved. I'd rather have my stuff. Maybe today. Paul put Patti and I ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Glen Mhor Hotel & Apartments Inverness
We stayed just one night at the Glen Mhor, but would not have minded more. It is not too far from the center of town by car (or taxi) and has a beautiful view over the river. If it hadn't been raining, and if we had had the time, the walk along the river would have been a delight.
Nice, though Pricey
We found the Glenmhor after a futile half an hour searching for rooms at the neighboring B&Bs. While not our first choice due to price, we had a pleasant stay regardless. The room was relatively large (ours was in the annex) and comfortable. The location couldn't be beat, right next to the river and a short walk from the castle/downown. We came back after dinner for a nightcap in the very cozy in-hotel bar, Nico's. Breakfast the next morning was the standard Scottish breakfast, although we apparently sat in the wrong part of the dining room and got a bit of a cold shoulder from the manager. Otherwise, however, the staff was very nice. Recommended, if the price is within your range.
Lovely Location, Variable Rooms
The Glen Mhor hotel has a lovely location on the River Ness Walk; when you walk outside the front door, you are greeted by the skyline of Inverness along the bank of the river. The views and sizes of the rooms vary considerably, so if this is an issue, be sure to make a personal request. Our window opened to an alley and flocks of birds that made considerable noise. We found Nico's food and atmosphere to be first rate, and the parking was quite accessible. Don't miss driving the Black Isle!
Excellent service, Excellent Accomadation - Dinner was Brilliant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Inverness - Its central location was also a bonus.
Can't wait to get back
Our stay at the Glen Mhor Hotel Inverness in January 2005 was excellent.
The room was clean and airy. It had a wonderful view of the River, It had a bath and a shower.
We ate in their Nico's Bistro which was absolutely first class.
We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends!!!!
We were very excited to stay here having read wonderful reviews, but were extremely disappointed. I'm sure this hotel may have been very nice years ago, but it has definitely gone down hill. The outside looked much more run down than I was expecting. I couldn't believe it was the same place as in the pictures I had seen. We were shown to our "standard" room, which had barely enough room for the double bed, the carpet was torn, the walls were filthy, and the view looked out onto a rooftop and dumpsters. We requested an upgrade and were granted a much better room with a wonderful view (though still hardly deluxe and we had to pay extra for it). While this did help to make up for my initial disappointment, dinner the second night nearly ruined my entire vacation. The steak at Nico's was terrible and caused me to become extremely ill. After being taken to the doctor I was diagnosed with an intestinal infection caused by improperly prepared food!
Nico's Restaurant and lounge bar is worth a visit
We didn't stay at this hotel but we ate in Nico's restaurant 2 nights running and it was very good. An excellent choice of menu at a very reasonable price (very tender sirloin steaks around £15 with veg etc. and the languistines (mini lobster/shrimps) with pasta were £18 for about 12). Bottle of house wine around £12. The lighting was just right for couples and groups by being low but not too intimate. The lounge bar has big comfy chairs in a stable type building which is very cosy. Recommended.
Warm and friendly
When we arrived, we were given a room in one of the adjacent buildings with twin beds. Our request to sleep in the same bed was accomodated quickly and effortlessly. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, old world combined with modern conveniences. Convenient to local transportation and sightseeing. I would stay there again in a hearbeat.
We originally booked our room thru a popular internet booking agency at the Palace Hotel. But the day before our trip, we got a call that the hotel had overbooked & our confirmed reservation was canceled. Needless to say, I was quite upset. They suggested the Glen Mhor to us which was less than half the price and turned out to be a much better place to stay. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was great! Not only did we save money, the Palace bought us a bottle of wine as an apology, and we found a great place to stay!
The BEST taste of scotland.
The warmest, most traditional, charming hospitality I have ever enjoyed. Truely a fantastic hotel, and wonderful place to enjoy the splendour of the highlands from. Excellent wine list, delicious white linen dining. Cosy bars with big velvet couches! Fall in love with the hotel and the staff. Highly recomended.
