What an amazing place, so much to see inside and out

A big thank you to MotoGoLoco for our free night dinner, bed and breakfast.  We had a very pleasant stay at the Glenuig Inn, Lochailort.

Glenuig Inn

We left Dumfries on Tuesday morning, brilliant ride up with spectacular scenery, we stopped regularly to admire the views. We called in at the Green Welly Stop, near Glencoe, which is very popular with bikers. The Glenuig Inn, 35 miles North of Fort William sits in a quiet, secluded and tranquil bay with lovely views over the water and surrounding countryside.  The Inn itself is very nice with clean, comfortable and modern rooms. The staff were very pleasant and on hand if you needed anything. The menu is varied, food was good and well presented in a relaxed atmosphere. This is the perfect place to go if you want to relax and get away from it all – so much so that we booked in for an extra night as we wanted to see some of the sights around Fort William.

We went to Neptunes Staircase, Inverlochy Castle and in the afternoon took the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig where we spent a couple of hours exploring the harbor shops and sat at the harbor watching the seals (one of the photos) coming up to the boats looking for fish.

We left the following morning and traveled to the Nevis Range, taking the cable car up the mountain where we could still see some snow on the top. Leaving there we headed for Fort Augustus then up the west side of Loch Ness to Dores, where we visited friends for the afternoon. That evening we headed to Inverness and onto the A9 South to another MotoGoLoco recommended guest house, called Torguish House at Daviot for the night.

What an amazing place, so much to see inside and out with all of the antiques and collectables, (they even had two vintage motorbikes!).  We were made to feel so welcome by Mike & Angie, the delightful couple who own the place. Breakfast was outstanding. Will definitely go back when in that area again.

All in all a great 4 day break on some of Scotland’s finest motorcycling routes.

Thanks again,
