    Excellent Stay!


    Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Highland Hotel, which has recently as been bought by the Lochs and Glens Tour Company and they have just renovated it. The hotel is lovely, the rooms are new, spacious and most have a lovely view of the loch. I would recommend this hotel, its great for the cost, drinks are pretty cheap and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. However, there tends to be a lot of older people so the entertainment is more geared toward them, but we didnt find this a problem at all.

The hotel has an old world charm with its oak panelled staircase and open coal fire in the entrance hall. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room rate includes a full Scottish breakfast - more than enough to set you up for a long days sightseeing.

Fantastic Highland Hotel

by PrincessMonja about Kylesku Hotel

This hotel is beautifully located on the banks of a loch in the heart of the Northern Highlands.

It is a small hotel with 8 bedrooms, a restaurant and a bar. The location is stunning and the welcome is very warm. The food in both the bar and the restaurant are excellant. Seafood is the speciality and they pride themselves on the use of local produce. Try the langoustines (you'll love how they are served - see the website!) and the venison is delicious. If seafood and meat aren't your thing they always have veggie options available.

The hotel is next to the jetty where you can take trips out on the loch to see local sites, such as the highest waterfall in Britain.

"A highland fling"

Well it had to come one day!! the coach holiday :-)) noy quite in the saga catergory But not far behind :-)
As it turned out it proved to be a very relaxing and enjoyable trip.
Well with not having to drive for a ful eight days. Was brilliant
and having to drive for a living it was nice to let someone else do the work
We arrived in the quaint village of Strathpeffe. Formaly a very popular SPA village in victorian Era
The hotel was called THE HIGHLAND HOTEL also being a very well restored Victorian hotel.
The food was excellent all through our stay including breakfast and evening meals
The staff all being mainly east european did thier job and were polite
(ecept and my only gripe was the Lithuainian bar manager so miserable when he had to serve drinks after 11.15pm come on its a hotel :-))
We steerd clear of the waltz and the gay gordons dancing :-)) Instead we made a beeline for one of the local pubs in the village. which served an amazing pint of Bitter called BELL HAVEN

"the richmond hotel our favourite watering hole"

her ei where we spent quite a few evenings in Strathpeffer away from the higland hotel and the waltzing and gaygordons dancing.
It served good ales and had good company. It was a five minute walk from the highland hotel

West Coast Scotland

by twistedsisters

Hi People,

Six of us are looking at going to West Coast Scotland next summer. We need nice self-catering accommodation. Good location in terms of beauty, mountains, loch or coastal; busy, shopping malls, gym (really important), swimming pool. Any other Scottish places of interest or natural beauty to visit as well. Would welcome your opinions on the best locations.

Many thanks for any replies.

I've just noticed your posting but have just given a reply to another guy looking for "must sees" so check that one out.

Depends on your budget in terms of accomodation but for top notch there is of course Turnberry which is south of Ayr. Closer to the town and good commuting distance to Glasgow and other areas would be the Marine Highland Hotel in Troon (slightly better priced than Turnberry). It's the only one I can think of around there that fits the bill in terms of a pool and a gym that I know of, although there are many good other options. If it is definately self catering you want, then there are cottages for hire from Blairqhuan castle estate. My friends and I stayed in the castle itself last year at a very reasonable cost. I'm not sure if that is still possible as Lord Blair has since passed away.

Finally, try out www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk/holidayhomes.html

Feel free to email with any more questions

The West Coast of Scotland covers a lot of coast! So perhaps you could be a little more specific as to where you want to go! Ayr makes a good centre - and it has a public swimming pool complete with leisure centre; you are going to pay a premium for a place that has its own pool/gym.

Sounds to me like you might want to condider renting a timeshare place which has all facilities plus superb locations.

by Adelle123

I take it you mean the south of scotland... There's certainly no shopping malls in the north west of scotland, although there's miles of beautiful coastline and mountains. There's gyms and swimming pools in Oban, Fort William and Portree, which are all lovely places.
