12th Century Romance…

I spent the weekend in the Scottish Highlands with The GirlfriendĀ©. It wasn’t really a Valentine’s thing, but I guess that’s what the timing would suggest.

I booked a night at Tulloch Castle Hotel, which is in Dingwall, just north of Inverness. The building is a nine hundred year old relic that retains a lot of its original look, and comes complete with a resident ghost called The Green Lady. Thankfully I didn’t see her, although our four-poster bed was so wide that she could easily have slept with us and I’d never have known.

I have been to many amazing places around the world, but for sheer natural beauty it’s hard to think of anywhere that is quite as breathtaking as the road we took back from Loch Ness on Sunday morning. A photo doesn’t do it justice, but I’ll drop one in here anyway.

Fantastic hotel; great food; spectacular scenery. And, of course, the best company I could hope for. Well worth the near three hour drive to get there.
