Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We were lucky to arrange a private tour of Boleskine House and grounds for a small group of people. Construction work continues, but the place already has a lot to offer to anybody interested in history or natural beauty of the area. Our guide provided a fantastic tour with access to both gardens and many rooms of the house. Magnificent place of Scottish history which leaves you wanting to learn more and to see it again. Visits can be arranged via Boleskine House Foundation's website, highly recommended!

    It was worth a visit even though the castle was closed for renovation. The views were great and it's worth the walk and the time spent there.

    These grounds were breathtaking to take in and so full of history.
    Erik was so kind to drop his activities and treat us with a wonderful and informative tour. We had simply the best time learning about the Fraser Lovat’s, the history of the central highlands and was treated to climbing the bell tower and ringing the mausoleum bell. It was brilliant and we cannot fault Erik - he was generous with his time and really gripped us with his story telling abilities and wealth of knowledge. We genuinely had a wonderful experience. Thank you Erik!!

    We spent a great deal of time here admiring the outside of the building as the beginning of our self-guided walking tour through Inverness thanks to Rick Steves' book. My kids enjoyed the wolves and the mercat cross.

    A well-worn cross which designated the market area. This is were townsfolk gathered to share news, hear important proclamations, talk and trade, etc. The stone at the base is Inverness' "Stone of Destiny". Whenever someone moved away from Inverness, they chiseled off a piece to take a small piece of home with them. Visions of the past!

    It is good that there are memorials around the UK to remember the sacrifices made by people during the First World War for the freedoms we enjoy now.

    As you leave Inverness station on the right hand side is the memorial to the young men who lost their lives during WWI who at the time were working for the HIghland Railway. It is worth taking time to look at this and remember what they did.

    Never Forget.

    A lovely architectural building, in the Queen Anne style, easy to find in Bank Street. Well worth a visit, if your in the area.
