Great Glen Way conference. Photo from VisitLochNess.com
Today I will be at the Great Glen Way conference in Invermoriston where I will be speaking on Social Media and how it enables businesses and organisations to connect with customers and potential customers.

I’m invited to speak at this conference which promotes the Great Glen Way on social media and how it can benefit individual businesses but also the Great Glen Way in itself.

There is already a Facebook and Twitter account for the Great Glen Way but at the moment not very active probably due to lack of resources which is often the problem.

I hope I can demonstrate that social media shouldn’t take a lot of time and how it can be more effective.

Representatives and Information from the following organisations will be present:

Great Glen Way Manager
Forestry Commission
British Waterways Scotland
Great Glen Canoe Trail
Visit Scotland
Destination Loch Ness
Outdoor Capital UK
Business Gateway
Highland Access Officer
West Highland Way Managers

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.

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….)

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!

Pam and Rene
