From the summit of Ben Nevis, gale warnings for ship owners and skippers were once transmitted to this distinctive Victorian building. Today, it is a serene B&B, with spacious bedrooms, many with stunning views of Loch Linnhe and the Ardgour Hills. Scottish breakfasts (porridge with a dash of whisky or lashings of cream; scrambled eggs with local smoked salmon) are served in a light-filled room overlooking tranquil gardens and the loch.

The Scottish Highlands embraces the islands of Skye, the Hebrides, the Orkneys and the Shetlands. Outdoor pursuits include climbing (Ben Nevis, near Fort William, is Britain’s highest mountain), fishing, shooting.

Our hotels can offer you the stay you're after - from the remote island of Tobermory to a former hunting lodge and including town and remote settings. There is Scottish dancing and ceilidhs in tourist centres; whisky distilleries galore. Seek the Loch Ness monster at Inverness. Walk or ski in the Cairngorms. Remember the massacre of the Macdonalds by the Campbells in the calm beauty of today’s Glencoe and the slaughter at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Visit Cawdor Castle of Macbeth fame and Brodie Castle, in a large park near Forres.
