B&B near Castle Stuart golf course Inverness

Castle Stuart golf course

Great news for Inverness and the Highlands!

It’s been confirmed yesterday that Castle STuart golf course is hosting the Barclays Scottish open being held from the 7th to the 10th of July 2011

A great achievement as this wonderful golf course only recently opened. I’m not a golfer myself but heard good stories from previous B&B guests of the course.

We will be looking forward to welcoming golfers and spectators of the Castle Stuart Scottish Open championship and no, we will not raise our prices for this event. Our daily rate stays at £80 for a double room.

See below the pictures they made of their stay with us. Madhuri and Saikat, thanks for sending these and hope we’ll see you back in Inverness next time you visit Scotland!

Snow at Creevale B&B Inverness

The snow has now disappeared in Inverness but we enjoyed a long spell of the white stuff over the past two weeks. The weather forecast is mild for this week but it might look like we can enjoy another white Christmas in Inverness, Scotland. See above the photo of our back garden in the snow. (I should have taken the garden furniture in….)

Monopoly Inverness game, Highlands and Islands edition

Last week saw the launch of the new Monopoly Highlands and Islands edition that features famous Highlands and Inverness locations like on the famous and popular board game. Loch Ness grabbed the property hot spot replacing Mayfield.

The first time we went to buy it it was already sold out and I guess it’s because people see it as an excellent Christmas gift. Will be going out to the shops tomorrow and hope I can get my hands on one, will post pictures of it later.

Pam and Rene you were the BESTS hosts we had on all our travels. Pam your eyes shine with welcome. Rene you are a real professional at your job – we found no-one as interested in the well-being of their guests.

A true warm welcome from hosts who care about their guests.

Superb hosts, great bed, large bathroom, garden view,lovely breakfasts.

Aloma and Bill from N.Z.

Delighted with this latest review left by Aloma and Bill who stayed with us in August. Aloma and Bill travelled for 5 weeks and visited us at the end of August. They travelled by train from London to Edinburgh, to spend a few days in Scotland’s Capital city. Visiting Edinburgh in August is a great idea as the world famous Edinburgh Tattoo is on which they enjoyed very much.

Pam prepared Bill’s his first ever porridge which went down well! The next day the drove to Dingwall for some family research and hope they found some family connections.

Aloma and Bill, if you read this, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this great review of your stay with us in Inverness and glad you enjoyed our hospitality. Hope to see you back when you visit Scotland again, you’re always welcome!

Tomatin distillery

Tomatin whisky distillery Scotland

Pam and myself visited the excellent Maltstock whisky gathering in the Netherlands. It was a great festival where whisky lovers from all over the world attended.

On the way back from the Maltstock festival we travelled back by train and we sat next to Douglas Campbell Distillery manager of the nearby Tomatin distillery, near Inverness.

Tomatin distillery is only a 15 minute drive away from our little B&B in Inverness and is very worthwhile to visit even if you don’t drink whisky! 😉
