Valentines Weekend is coming soon – 14th February 2014

Where better to treat your loved one, than to whisk them away for a Valentines weekend break in Inverness and the stunning Scottish Highlands.  There’s still time to get organised and plan something special for a romantic get away.

Romantic walks in the glen

Monster Hunting

Whisky Tasting

Table for Two



There’s a vast choice of restaurants in Inverness.  The Dores Inn is set in the most stunning setting on the shores of Loch Ness 8 miles from Inverness.  It offers the atmosphere of a traditional country pub complete with log-burner and sofas as well as an excellent menu filled with local produce.  Or how about starting the evening with cocktails in the Rocpool Reserve Hotel, not to be confused with one of our favourites the Rocpool Restaurant.  There’s also a new Prosecco and Tapas Bar in the town centre as well as other favourites like the Mustard Seed, the Kitchen and Cafe 1.  We’re very happy to make recommendations and reservations for you.

This year Valentines Day falls on a Friday, so this year a weekend away will fit in nicely.  Whatever you decide to do, let us know if we can help with your accommodation needs in Inverness.
