Today Nic was sick and I was sad so we stayed around and slept in and had some oat cakes and watched telly. We also planned the next leg of our journey and bought a coach pass. On Monday we will go to Glasgow and experience the city and hopefully the Glaswegian humour I have heard so much about. Tuesday is a travel day, going up The west coast into the highlands and stopping in at Fort William for a couple of hours before we head to Inverness. We will look around Inverness ...
... trick called a 'duck ****' which he thought was hilarious. With tired feet we made our way to the house where Caroline cooked a stir fry for tea. Like Wallace and Grommet we again enjoyed Wesley dale cheese (Yorkshire cheese, unpasteurised and delicious) for dessert with oat cakes. Tomorrow we will go into Rothesay on Bute Island to enjoy some different scenery. Thinkin of nana and ...
... knowledgeable and certainly enjoyed his whiskey. It was just a bit of a shame that most of the hard work in creating the actual stuff (such as growing and malting the wheat, or bottling and despatching the finished product) is done elsewhere. Essentially the site on Skye is a giant, complex kettle, boiling water all day long. Of course, I may have missed the point as all I was concentrating on was trying to sneak a few photographs in the top secret ...
I cannot believe how delayed I am at updating this blog! It is now the 8th June, so we have well and truly finished our Scotland trip, and I'm only on this day, shocking! I named this day 'Carpets of blue' because on the way towards Glasgow we drove through the Loch Lomond National park which had hill sides absolutely smothered in blue bells. Beautiful! Before visiting Loch Lomond, and not long after leaving Oban we visited Dunstaffnage Castle. This was a castle built into ...
... on land granted by Robert the Bruce, then King of Scotland. Fillan himself was a missionary from Ireland who worked in this area in the mid 700s. (Not a typo…I really mean the mid 700s!) Fillan was associated with a number of miracles, as were relics attributed to the saint. What I found interesting was that particular families were charged with guarding these holy relics down through the generations. Some of the relics were eventually ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa Inveraray
Having recently returned from spending the Christmas Holiday period at Loch Fyne Hotel I feel I have to comment on the tremendous job all the staff did over this holiday. Their attention to detail was above and beyond what was required. They made every effort to make us comfortable and welcome, even down to making a snowman on Christmas Day The location is stunning. We shall certainly be returning.
Stayed here for 4 days (three nights) between Xmas and New Year. We didn't get as much walking done as we had hoped, because the weather was pathetic. Thank goodness for the pool, sauna and jacuzzi.
Can't beat this hotel for location,views,good food and service.Room was large double with side view over gardens, spotlessly clean and well stocked welcome tray.Good choice of dinner and breakfast menus well served by efficent and friendly staff.Short walk to town centre along loch side makes this an ideal short break location. We manage to get a last minute deal which ment this was great value for money.Have since recommended to friends who returned with same glowing reports.
Superb. Everything wonderful. Rooms lovely and clean, good standard. Food superb, staff first rate. We will return
The Loch Fyne Hotel at Inveraray, is very interesting. It is set in a stunning location with superb views of the loch. When entering the hotel for the first time, I was greeted with a friendly smile from a lady on reception who had very efficiently all my pre-booked details to hand.
Recently I celebrated my anniversary at Loch Fyne. the mini suite was fantastic, the housekeeping attention to detail was 1st class and the food and service second to none. I cannot praise this hotel enough. The management and staff went out of their way to ensure Alan & I had a great time and we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Don't miss this place if you are travelling near Inveraray.
I have visited this hotel twice. Firstly when I took my mother and because we got the holiday for such a cheap price at the time - I couldn't really complain (via Easybreaks). The food was ok and the room was alright. However I returned with my husband and our room was tiny and had dampness and mould which was foul smelling. I have to be fair and advise that we were moved to 'an executive twin' room which was not what we had booked (double) but anything was better than staying in the first room. Overall the stay was ok but the so called entertainment was woeful. I was embarrassed being a Scot as the place was full of foreign visitors and a few were unhappy about the accomodation, the food and definately the guy with the guitar. I doubt I'll ever return!!!
Contrary to their web site and brochure, this hotel has all the atmosphere of a run down Travelodge. The residents lounge is totally without atmosphere and any seating is the cheap variety previously used in their Bistro (now closed).
Bless the staff
Staff are treated absolutely horribly! Just make sure you tip them directly, rather than the rude management. I actually saw a waitress brought to tears over something so trivial. Spoiled an otherwise perfect meal.
I have stayed at this hotel twicw and fully intend to stay there again. The views are spectacular. The food is wonderful (Prices are for full board DBB). It also has a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jaccuzi. Looking over Loch Fyne while relaxing in the jaccuzi is really something. Highly recommended.
