... for winter, before drinking coffee in the one main hotel. Richard, couldn't help pointing out that while we were drinking coffee, 3 men were already into the whiskey at 10.30am. I think he was jealous. Just 12 miles out of town on the road to Beauly we made our next stop at the Corrieshallock Gorge. This is a narrow, steep sided chasm which is about 45 metre high and has an amazing waterfall cascading through it. The walk around the gorge ...
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 ...
... Right when Isabel and I were both losing steam, breakfast was served in the castle and we regained our strength and danced the night away until 4 am when we sang Auld Lang Syne and got outta there. Overall, a wonderful weekend with wonderful people. I missed Dublin though! Good signs, I think.
This week should be boringboringboring as I have a couple papers to write and no money left.

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Highland Hotel Inverness
I Stayed for 2 days at the Royal Highland Hotel in Inverness, and even though the hotel is ok (it is not cheap so they are not giving you anything) the service leaves a lot to be desired. I requested an adaptor as I needed to recharge my mobile phone. (I mean, given that all countries in Europe require an adaptor when they are in the UK) I was rather surprised by the lack of such item at the hotel. But what really annoyed me is the lack of interest to find one for me. Also the reception is empty at many given times, or the receptionist (Yes, believe me it is true) is listening to music with a Discman.
2 nights in Inverness
Had a two night weekend break in the Highland and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a few problems with the room that were not fixed although we reported them straight away. Lamp didn't work as did the extractor fan in toilet. Window could not be closed and as the heater did not come till later on in the evening, room was cold in October.
On the plus side the Ash restaurant was fantastic. Food excellent and very reasonable.
Literally right next door to the railway station so it is really handy.
It is situated in the city centre which is again a plus.
This is probably the nicest hotels in inverness & i have stayed in a lot there. I have given this a 4* rating because there were 2 instances which gave me small problems.
Great hotel and location
Was there in 2002 on Britrail pass around the UK and this hotel was almost next door to the Station,as name suggests,It does not look that impressive from outside, but my room and bathroom was super a great surprise. Good to see some hoteliers putting back money into their properties.Staff pleasant too. Would stay there again
The royal highland hotel is fantastic!! True Highland hospitality. The hotel itself is amazing, the traditional decor of the rooms and lobby is complimented by the modern and funky ASH restaurant (not sure about the name?!) - the vennison was excellent. Staff in the hotel were friendly and the housekeeping staff did a fine job, I stayed in 206 - Stuart Park Suite - which I would highly recomend, my only gripe with the hotel was the lack of leisure facilities and poor parking.... will definately be back though!!!
I dare to say that this hotel is definitely something big in the small capital of the Highlands. Half of the people dining in the ASH restaurant are not residents and there are always social functions going on.
You can't get more central or closer to Inverness train station than this large hotel. Parking is a real problem though, with only a few spaces available for such a large hotel. My single room was comfortable, clean and quiet so I was pleased about choosing this hotel - at first. The reception staff were helpful, but it was when trying to get an evening meal in the bar/restaurant I hit problems. I tried to order at the bar but was told that only the restaurant manager took orders and he would be sent to me. He didn't arrive so on seeing him I went up and tried to place an order. he said he would come over in a minute, but didn't seem interested. He obviously wasn't as 15 minutes later he had still not appeared so I went next door for a Pizza! I put this experience on my hotel feedback form and ticked the box which offered someone from the hotel contacting me about any issues. Nobody has contacted me. If you want to be ignored, choose this hotel.
Don't let the Royal Highland pass you by.
I have stayed in this hotel on and off since it was the Station Hotel and the improvements in recent years are amazing. The rooms are now well decked out and comfrotable. The en suite showers are among the best. The public areas have a grandeur of a byegone era. The new restaurant/bar is first class. The staff are friendly. The rates are reasonable. It is bang in the centre of town. What more can I say.
Loved the royal highland inverness
Just back from 3 days in the Royal Highland Hotel in Inverness. Great staff, friendly atmosphere, great breakfast, and the ASH Restaurant is just out of this world, really good food and plenty of it. The cheese and oatcakes were out of this world!
I stayed at the Royal Highland Hotel in Inverness for 3 nights during Feb 2004 and overall my stay was very enjoyable. Because I had travelled overnight by coach I arrived at the hotel 3 hours before the permitted check-in time. I explained about my long and exhausting journey upon arrival and the receptionist was very kind as she allowed me to check in early without any fuss. What impressed me the most about this hotel was the ambience and period dÃ©cor, especially in the public areas. The grand staircase was especially impressive. It was like stepping back a hundred years. My room was fairly clean, freshly decorated and comfortable, although I will have to be honest and say that the picture frames hadnt seen a duster in quite some time. Plus the bed was a little uncomfortable. But overall my room was nice and the furnishings were of a very high quality. I do have one little complaint though. I had paid in advance for a twin room on a bed and breakfast basis. Sadly my companion had to cancel the trip at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances so I travelled alone and had sole occupancy of the room. Upon check-in I asked if I could convert one of the breakfasts to a packed lunch instead and I was told quite firmly that this could not be done. I found this to be quite mean.
