... taxi to the CairnGorm mountains and Mark, Tim and I had our day of snowboarding lessons. Naomi strolled around the mountain taking photos and sampling Scottish Whisky. To get to the top of the mountain, we all caught the Funicular, which is a train that goes up a steep slope. When at the top, we were kitted out with snowboarding gear and then we walked out to a steepish spot on the mountain where our lesson began.
It was quite fun ...

- Loch Ness is huge, spanning 37km and is best known for alleged sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, also known as "Nessie".
- The Glenfinnan monument stood alone with its own lakeside backdrop and snow covered hills. The church nearby was also really cool, all alone on the side of the road. Neptune's staircase went for miles. Once ...
Missed a day didn't I? One and a half actually.
After we left wet old Whitby, We headed north towards
Edinburgh, the intention being to find somewhere to stay the night one side or the
other of the city. Mice and men again. We missed the turning for the bypass and
ended up wandering around in the Edinburgh traffic for quite a while. After
finally asking directions we got out and over the Forth road bridge. Then tried to
find accommodation. No room ...

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.
