Highlands Reports

Beauly, Highlands

Review of Beauly by Wright on August 12th, 2009
We stayed at Kilmorack House in Beauly,which is near the yellow art gallery that was a former church. The house was the former vicarage. We had a fabulous, relaxing week in this very spacious house. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We will definitely be returning. The aga in the kitchen was a real treat to cook on and it kept the large kitchen warm and welcoming.The town of Beauly is only a mile away from the house and has every amenity you could need for your stay. The delicatessen shop is a must stop for all visitors.If you like good old fashion service, there is a large shop selling Scottish fabric and clothing in the town, near Boots the chemist. Very nice family.Everyone we met in the town was friendly and polite and provided excellent service. Beauly is well situated if you want to go to Inverness or have a scenic tour of the beautiful Highland region. A small golf club is close to the house which shuts very late should you wish to have a late game.All in all, our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We would recommend it.

Fort William, Highlands

Review of Fort William by R. Graham on May 18th, 2007
The town of Fort William is nothing special to look at, it rains a lot and there are too many shops selling tartan tat, but the area around it has plenty of the most outstanding mountain and loch scenery in Britain. It is also perfectly located as a centre for exploring the western highlands.

Gairloch, Highlands

Review of Gairloch by Tim Frost on June 14th, 2007
Just over a week ago my car broke down at a viewpoint just to the North of Gairloch (battery failure). I was on tour from Devon. A garage a mile from there came out promptly to help and my battery was replaced. The problem was dealt with with kindness, humour and great efficiency. Within an hour we were back on the road to enjoy the rest of our holiday. I hope this column can locate the garage (& coach station) to express my warmest thanks.

Strontian, Highlands

Review of Strontian by Liz on October 5th, 2007
Strontian is a thriving village at the head of Loch Sunart at the start of the spectacular Ardnamurchan Peninsula. It has a wellstocked shop,Post-Office,and fuel pumps. There is an excellent all day cafe,and a mile out of the village is a cafe,restaurant,craft centre,ideally situated for refreshment at the end of an amazing walk through the oakwoods and along the Strontian river. There is a tourist information centre in the village,and visitors are also welcome to use the new slipway to launch boats and canoes on to the loch.Come and visit---you won't regret it!

Ullapool, Highlands

Review of Ullapool by Emily on June 25th, 2007
I love Ullapool. I've been going there for about 4years now, camping at Broomfield site, always in the same spot. I come up from Aberdeen and just coming round the mountains and seeing Ullapool is like coming home for me. The smells, the views. And i have an unbelievable amount of pictures of that ferry!!!! I plan to take my best friend up there next year, but whether it's sunny, raining or whatever I LOVE IT!!! No words could ever describe how it feels to be coming home.

Wick, Highlands

Review of Wick by Ian Anderson on May 2nd, 2010
My Father was born in Wick and I have family Living there. Wick in a short Expression is Home, and I think one of the most forgotten and neglected towns in Scotland and the U.K. It Needs to be Televised What a history that the town has seen,endured and more Importantly Celebrated, A Royal Burgh. How many People in the U.K Know of this.Hardly none. Let us as a Nation during these hard Recessional times celebrate and make aware of what we have to offer on this Great Isle of Ours. Sorry But Iam So Passionate about My History Lets Us Show the Country if not the World.
