Rocpool Reserve hotel and Chez Roux
1st night dinner at Rocpool Reserve – Read our review of Chez Roux here.
Hootananny – If you’re in Inverness you must visit!

Check Hootanany’s website for details of bands playing

Breakfast at the Kingsmills Hotel
Chanonry Point on the Black Isle – Perfect for Dolphin Spotting
No dolphins today!
Fort George visible on the other side of the firth – worth a visit if you have time.
Next stop after a (recommended) detour through Dornoch past Grannies Heilan Hame was Dunrobin Castle
Well worth a visit (adults £10.50) – Dramatically perched on the firth with amazing views
View out of the dirty castle window – freezing in the castle but lovely and warm outside
The gardens must be wonderful in summer.  Also top left of the picture is where the Falconry displays take place.

Dinner this evening is in the Kingsmills Hotel Conservatory Restaurant. Read our review here.


Before we hit the road and with it being such a glorious morning we decided to have a walk round the Islands.  A beautiful river walk in the heart of Inverness.
Wibbly Wobbly bridges!

Lovely river and castle views.

Time to hit the road and head home via the Moray Whisky trail but more about that another time!

We did manage to stop for a very late lunch at The Mountain Café in Aviemore.  Read our review here.
