Castle Kilravock

by NJFamily

About 20 years ago I stayed at Castle Kilravock near Inverness, and was very impressed...18 pounds a night then, but I see by their web site that inflation has taken its toll...22 pounds now!

My question: They had a squash court then, which unfortunately I was unable to use on my prior stay.

So my questions:

1) Has anyone stayed there of late? How was the experience?
2) Is the squash court serviceable?

(I've e-mailed them, but no answer yet.)

RE: Castle Kilravock

I was there in November this year. I didn't stay but spent some time with the people now running it. It's gone all Christian and I know they have some sports facilities there but I can't be sure about the squash courts.
The garden is intact though (except for about a quarter of one tree that got hit by lightning!) and the grounds still beautiful.
You can contact them (according to the brochure they gave me) on or their website is; hope that helps.
Cheers, Ian

Just letting you know that the squash court at Kilravock can definately be used - its not at 'olympic' standard but you can still have a good game!! I worked at Kilravock (left in Jan 06) and whilst the organisation that rent the castle are Christian, B&B guests come from all over the world and certainly are made to feel welcome no matter their religious beliefs (or their squash-playing abilities!)

Travel Tips for Inverness

Sailing through the countryside

by daarth

At the top of the Muirtown Locks, we entered a longer stretch of canal. It was a totally new experience navigating on a narrow man made Canal. We of course had to use the engine, as there is no room for sailing other than on the lochs (lakes).
It was quite relaxing “driving” through the countryside and watch the scenery pass by.


by daarth

There are Dolphin-cruises out in the Moray Firth that more or less give you a guarantee for sightings. When we came sailing in the Moray Firth in a gale force 9, we didn’t stand a chance seeing any. But as we came near the entrance to the Canal at about midnight, there they where! A group of 4 or 5 came dancing in the water to greet us. I learned later that this was the bottlenose dolphin.

Culloden Battlefield - Clan Grave Markers

by stevezero

On the Scottish side of the battlefield you can find the gravestones honouring the individual clans that took part and died in the battle. Again very poignant and much visited, the graves frequently still have fresh flowers.

Inverness, the home of Nessie

by ringleader

"Inverness from Edinburgh"

It was a 4-hour drive from Edinburgh area, but we enjoyed every bit of it. We traveled north on M90 to A9 and passed by Blair Atholl. It was most intriguing to see the lay of the land change as we passed into the Highlands.

Our first glimpse of Loch Ness was thrilling. I understand it is quite deep, which you can see reflected in the perfect stillness of the surface - at least it was perfectly calm when we were there! I hear tell it is also the longest one at 25miles!

"The Visitor Center"

We visited the gift shop north of Urquhart Castle visitors' center and saw the only Nessie there was to see there - there she was in all her concrete glory! The hotel was nice. We also stopped in the visitor's center to see the film and shop a little. We were disappointed by the high prices on the gifts. If you really are interested in the controversy surrounding the Loch Ness Monster, you may enjoy watching the short film there. You do have to pay, however, and you may think twice about that if you aren't caught up in the "is there really or is there not" fun.

"Urquhart Castle"

Definitely worth a view, the visitors' center at the castle makes the rest of it more interesting. The castle itself is not as nice, say, as Stirling or Edinburgh because it is more of a ruin than a castle. The film in the visitors' center is quite good and gives you a thrilling history (drama re-enactment) of the castle. The castle and visitors' center has a 5-star rating and is a Historic Scotland property.
