Spent the day in Aberdeen today, a very wet Scottish day but warm, so not much outdoor exploring. Unfortunately Balmoral Castle was closed so could not visit nor play a round of golf at St Andrews!! Aberdeen is a very floral town with baskets of flowers everywhere. The main street has pennants of all countries strung from one side of the road to the other.
Put the rain jackets on and walked along the old railway line from ...
Picked up our Mercedes rental car and off we went. Left Edinburgh heading for Aberdeen with a few detours on the way and a change of plan more than once!!! Think that's all I need to say.

... Against The Midges we have some time to spend on the road to head towards Loch Ness. We arrive at The Loch Ness Inn in Drumnadrochit and the place is buzzing. It has a restaurant and a bar. Getting a table proves a challenge for many people that night but it looks like we arrived there right in time. Lucky us! Dinner was great and so are the rooms. Day 9: Time to discover Loch Ness.

When I left home, I left at the time where everyone was leaving for uni, so people were drifting anyway. I have kept in contact with a lot of people but also accepted that people move on...and at that point in life, it is understandable.

TravelPod Member ReviewsNorwood Hall Hotel Aberdeen
We were planning weekend break with my sister and husband during out visit from Australia. My sister found that there was a great deal going on laterooms.com - 99 pounds per couple for dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the grounds are beautiful and inside is lke stepping back in time - open fireplaces, sumptuous sofas, majestic staircase, carved wooden ceilings, tapestry covered walls....and the bedooms in the new wing are large and very nicely fitted out. The staff were delightful and the food - particularly the dinner was first class. This was our first visit but my sister and husband had been here last year and had an equally enjoyable experience.
