... headed to Beauly for a late lunch and a walk through the town. The most notable attraction of this town is the Beauly Priory built as a monastery in the 13th century. Only the external walls of the priory are still standing but it is set in a lovely garden full of graves dating back to the 16th century. Some of the oldest graves were inside the ruins. We found a pub which looked promising for dinner before finding our accommodation for the ...
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 ...
... and we got to sit and talk for 3 hours before Emily's flight landed. It was so good to have a little taste of home, plus Isabel is in London this semester and so much of the good and not-so-good that we were experiencing was the same. We all got picked up and set off for Angus, a town about an hour and a half from Edinburgh. Emily's house, family, and general Scottish existence was adorable and whimsical and explained a little of why she is ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We definitely won't be back.
Trying to get a confirmation after using their online booking system was like pulling teeth and included no reservation details (type of room, price, amenities included, etc.). Should have been a warning, I guess.
Our room was directly under the bar, in the basement. Not ideal for a Saturday night stay and when we complained about the noise/late hour on checking out, staff simply shrugged and mumbled "sorry".
I don't want to think about how clean things actually were/weren't. The carpeting was in dire need of cleaning or actual replacement, as were the throw pillows on the bed (I really don't want to think about the rest of the bedding).
Service was erratic and the included breakfast was mediocre. It would help if sufficient staff were available. Unbelievable considering the rate. Certainly didn't provide a good representation of Inverness or this facility.
