Travel Blogs from Inverness
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 ...
... from all around the world, it was a bit depressing to see so many animals stuffed & mounted - a real eye opener. After that we went and looked around the castle - like a lot of places you aren't allowed to take photos inside, they want you to buy the book ( and we did ). The castle is still owned by the family, that shows how much money is still in the family, normally they hand the properties over to the national trust because they can't afford to keep running them
I took a paid Rabbies two day tour up to Inverness and back after Glasgow. There was a lot of beautiful scenery and stops along the way.
We went on a short hike at one of the first stops to where a few of the tallest trees in the UK, it's hard to see in the photos but the trees are absolutely massive, the tallest ones being over 200ft ...
Today I was woken my what can only be described as a little girl at Christmas time.
In other words, Johanna shaking my knee and telli me to 'getup!'.
And for good reason too.
Whenever I was at home, and my dad asked me to go on a walk I was usually the last to give a solid answer.
Yet, in the space of yesterday evening...I...was the one to suggest doing a ...
... wasn't going to cut it so we decided to take our meals in the bar where at least there was some life. I (Sam) ordered the fish supper (haddock and chips). While we waited for our meals I thought I would order a pint of Guinness, however me old mate behind the bar said they were out. So I tried for the Caledonian Red, only to be told they were also out. I therefore thought, to save time I would ask old mate what they did have and the answer was Stella ...

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.
