    We were quite surprised to see the crowds that were touring Cawdor Castle in mid September in the middle of the week. The place was pretty crowded. That being said, we were able to tour the interior at out leisure and were not dependent on timed tour guides.
    The gardens were still in bloom and looked lovely.
    There is a very large gift shop on the way out from the tour. That was crowded as well.
    The parking lot was very easy to find and within close proximity to the entrance.

    A great museum with lovely volunteers who have a wealth of knowledge both of Nairn itself and also surrounding towns and history. Lots and lots of information and interesting artefacts and exhibitions. Well worth a visit.

    We did a 90min archery event and it was superb fun. We were taught how to shoot arrows properly and it was so much fun.
    All the instructors were really calm and constantly coaching us on a friendly way.
    The targets were fun and shooting arrows here was much much better than standard targets.
    5-10 mins from Nairn and great value for money.

    Historic and beautiful on the Findhorn River, viewers can take a short walk from a parking area to an overlook. Unsure if there is access to the river level.

    A wonderful course - a true test and very fair indeed. The staff in the clubhouse couldn’t be more attentive and welcoming . The course is a must .

    Lovely farm shop, very well stocked. Quite pricy for their berries (although absolutely delicious looking) couldn’t justify slightly under £10 for a punnet. had ice-cream instead and that was great value for money

    We had a 4 ball here and we had a great time. The course is more parkland than links. The rough was not punitive and it was lovely time.

    We had a great time on the course and we had a good lunch in the clubhouse.

    Definitely well worth a visit.

    Ideal for a family swim,Mum & Dad can use the steam room ,or watch with a coffee or soft drink.The centre is a short walk from the town centre.
    Take a stroll along the front from Nairn Harbour and enjoy beautiful views of the Black Isle and Moray Firth.
