From Oban ......diagonally north east across Scotland, through Inverness, into the REAL Highlands, and up to Dornoch where we lived 1957-1965. Quite a long trip by UK standards. I'll never know how our parents survived the one-day drive each summer from Dornoch down to Skipness in Kintyre .....sometimes towing a caravan, and transporting a dog, two ...
Today we went to look at 'Royal Dornoch Golf Club' It was very impressive, I have never seen a golf course like it, I walked on the grass to take Matt's picture and I felt as though I shouldn't be walking on it, again it was a lovely little village, there are flowers everywhere in England & Scotland & Wales, the villages all have baskets of flowers hanging outside the shops and all along the High streets, it just looks lovely.
From there we ...
... The first real town stop was in Pitlochry, some really nice small houses and scenery, then we went to the Queens View, photos don't really do the scenery justice.
Inverness was a smaller city but it still had a small castle and good views, we spent the night there and then started our journey back.
On the way back we passed by ...
Today we visited Loch Ness. Scientists can't approve or disapprove that there really is a Loch Ness Monster. It is possible that in the last ice age, Nessie was frozen in a glacier, and it moved down to where the lake would be. Then all the glaciers melted in the 350,000 lakes in Scotland today. The water is very dark, so it is very hard to see, even a something a foot away from your face would be ...
... must have been sleeping on the bottom! Photo of our driver, Ian, who can manoeuvre this bus in most impossible circumstances. Stopped at Dornoch for lunch, Madonna's children were baptised at the church in Dornoch. Our last stop was the Castle of Mey which was worth waiting for as we viewed the internal rooms where the Queen Mother and her children use to holiday. Quite humble surrounds indeed. No pics inside ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Glenmoriston Town House Inverness
A touch of Luxury in Inverness
This is a top-end hotel, price wise, but if you want a night of luxury, this is the place. We had a standard room, which was lovely, but we sneaked a look at the deluxe rooms, and they are magnificent. The setting is beautiful, by the river Ness, and it is only five minutes walk from Eden Court Theatre and the town centre.
We had dinner in the award winning Abstract Restaurant. It is French cuisine, trying to get a Michelin Star, and as such is a bit stuffy and expensive. But the meal we had was out of this world.
Friendly, helpful staff, just a blissful night's stay.
The Glenmoriston is a real gem, located by the banks of the river Ness in the centre of Scotland's highland capital.
I've used the hotel for busines and pleasure over the last three years and continue to be impressed by the level of comfort,service and the attitude of the staff. The standard off accomodation is high with recent refurbishment programmes adding to the splendour of this beatiful townhouse building. Dining is a pleasure, the newly installed Chef's table is great fun and complimented by beautifully prepared food.
The hotel offers highland hospitality at its best and is ideally located for access to the highlands and all that they offer. Business or pleasure the Glenmoriston is a wonderful place to stay.
Good value if booked via the internet
Our room was small but well appointed and comfortable. Normally 150 pound per night, it was very good value at 99 pound over the internet. It also came with a generous complimentary Scottish breakfast. Contrary to a previous reviewer, we found the service good and the staff friendly although a little hard to understand as all except for one Scottish waitress are French. We chose to eat out as the restaurant prices were on the high side. It was a satisfying stay.
on a recnt visit to ABSTRACT resteraunt i will and already have recomended the service and attention we received,10/10 for all concerned, we were pampered for full 3 hours spent.
Change may not be for the best
i stayed at the glenmoriston 2 weeks ago on a business trip. I found the staff generally quite pleasant. The french idea may prove yet to be a good thing for Inverness but perhaps only limited to the kitchen. I found the french service staff a little offputting. One french male waiter I found to be quite rude and unfriendly. The food was cleverly delivered and appealing to the eye if less so to the stomach. The hotel location is superb and the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Overall the stay was pleasant enough and I wouldn't rule out a return visit in the future.
We managed to book a superior room through 'late rooms' and got a rate of £70.00 instead of £130.
OK, but ask for ground floor room
Stayed here for 1 night in June. Booked executive room in the lodge adjacent to the main hotel. Newly decorated but oh so tiny. Top floor, so sloping ceilings also meant arched back when walking (shuffling?) around. Bathroom almost same size as bedroom. However, restaurant made up for the room. Excellent service, food and choice of wine.
Stayed 2 nights in an executive double room. At £140 (room) B+B per night, there are obviously cheaper places to stay, but as this was a special occasion, I would say that I got what I paid for. Standard double rooms are cheaper, and I expect they would be ok too. Excellent contemporary presentation of room. King size bed was excellent and LCD panel TV with DVD player + SKY TV was a nice touch. The room overlooked the river and the hotel was just a couple of minutes walk from shops/bars/restaurants but quiet enough to enjoy the stay. Bathroom spacious with outstanding power shower. Pity that there was no bath in our room (an executive double you might expect this), however this was not a major concern as the shower made up for it. We had dinner in the hotel the first night and the food was very nice, as was the breakfast on both days. Service was excellent throughout all meals. Our room was on the ground floor of the Lodge next to the hotel. On the whole, the Glenmoriston hotel is a great alternative to the chain hotels and I would stay here again if in Inverness. It is quite expensive but if you want (as I did) the stay to be special then try it out.
Expensive but charming
This place was reasonably located in terms of the rail and bus stations. The rooms were quite smokey (we had requested a non-smoking room but were unpleasantly surprised). The room was terribly small but the ensuite bathroom was large and accomodating. The included-breakfast was very good and the fact that you could order as much food as you like made it worth our while.
TIP: Consider taking a late breakfast and catching lunch at the same time!
Excellent base for Western Highlands
This is a well-run small hotel with an excellent restaurant. Both dinner and breakfast are outstanding. Cozy lounge. Competent and friendly staff. Bedroom average size, very nicely maintained; bath large and well-appointed. Beautiful setting along the river, near a number of other B&B establishments. Easy walk into town or along riverfront.
