Don't Go Home Without

Lovers of single malt can sip a dram or two at many local distilleries. You'll find several along Speyside's Whisky Trail, which begins 30 minutes' drive from the hotel. Dalmore distillery, beside the picturesque Firth of Cromarty, is highly rated by connoisseurs. You can tour the Glen Ord distillery, around 20 minutes' drive away, or try Tomatin, where you can fill your own bottle to take home.

Must See

Give yourself a local history lesson at the Culloden Battlefield, six miles from the hotel. The visitor centre sits on the spot where loyalist forces defeated the Jacobite rebellion in 1746. You can get an idea of the scale of the battle from the rooftop viewing platform, or experience what it was like to be at the centre of the action in the 360-degree Battle Immersion Theatre.

Must Do

Monster-hunters have to visit Loch Ness, which begins eight miles from the hotel. If you don't want to drive there, you can enjoy the view from the water on a boat run by Jacobite Cruises from Tomnahurich Bridge, four miles away by car. Even if you don't catch sight of the legendary 'Nessie' lurking in the depths, you can still climb to the ruins of Urquhart Castle on the loch's forested banks.

Local Tips

Make sure you visit central Inverness, three miles from the hotel. You can stroll by the river, which passes hilltop Inverness Castle and 19th-century St Andrews Cathedral on the way to the tropical greenhouses of Inverness Botanic Gardens. If you're looking for a gift, Eastgate Shopping Centre has over 60 stores. In the evening, take in a play, a concert or a movie at the Eden Court Theatre.
