We have planned many golf trips to Scotland, but recently were asked to help with a post-Olympics jaunt to Inverness.
Here are the highlights from our travellers:
Falconry at Dunrobin Castle
"We absolutely loved Dunrobin Castle and the falconry. I'm sure you've gotten this comment before. It was so interesting as well as entertaining. Fish & chips lunch at Trawler's was also perfect, great choice. It was also nice to visit this area (more desolate) first, before heading to Inverness.
Falls of Shin
The Falls of Shin was absolutely worth visiting. Not only did we get to see a few leaping salmon, the entire place was amazing to see--so beautiful, peaceful.
Biking Loch Ness
The bike ride to Loch Ness and back was spectacular and one of our most favorite things of the trip. We took the side roads (per the map and the guy at the shop) to and from, both paths amazingly beautiful.
We actually spent 4 hours and the cost for the hybrid bikes were 15 pounds per bike (30 pounds for 4 hours, not 40 pounds for 3 hours).
We also ended up not doing lunch at Castle Tavern, but did a late lunch at The Dores right on the lake, which we really enjoyed, and got a beer late afternoon at the Castle Tavern (great place too).
Cullodon Battlefield was very interesting, glad we stopped.
The Glenmoriston was a great choice and the room overlooking the canal was perfect. Mustard Seed was also great for us, we got seated upstairs with a view.
The topper for our trip was Boath House. How beautiful! We got upgraded to room 3 (probably thanks to your connections) and it was a stunning room - basically most of the back of the house facing the pond. Huge room and huge bathroom. We walked the gardens, we got in the row boat and rowed around the pond. The dinner was spectacular, we ate way too much but relished every bite. The only bad thing was that we hated to leave.
So, maybe too much detail, but we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time. You have certainly become our new favorite travel expert. We will definitely be contacting you for our next one. By the way, do you know much about Patagonia? Macchu Pichu?"
