Breakfast at Inverglen is a Culinary Delight!
At Inverglen, local food produce is used wherever possible, and your hosts will always try to include seasonal produce in their menu choices, enabling you to enjoy the best Scottish ingredients during your stay.
Eggs are all free-range, and are delivered weekly fresh from a Highland farm in Tain. Bacon, sausages and black pudding are all sourced from Scottish butchers or food producers, and Inverglen only serves Scottish Smoked Salmon, usually sourced from the Shetland Islands.
All cakes, sweet breakfast loaves and muffins are baked by Susan at home, and the shortbread provided in your room is also home-made. Please ask if you would like a recipe to take home, or you can “like” our Facebook page, where new recipes are posted every month or so!
The City of Inverness:
On The Map: Inverness is located on Scotland’s central northern coast. The town is accessed via the A9 road from the southeast (Cairngorms National Park), A82 from the southwest (Loch Ness) , and A96 from the northeast (Speyside, Whisky Country)
Inverness is the true capital of the Highlands, and with 50,000 people, it is one of Scotland’s fastest growing cities. It is also one of the Highland’s oldest settlements. All roads still lead to the Highland’s center, Inverness. It feels like a compact town, but it has the bustle and air of a lovely city. Let your imagination run wild, and take a ghost tour led by an 18th century ghost, complete with period costume. Expect to hear tales of the city’s blood-chilling past, including ghosts, witches, murders, and spells! Stroll along the River Ness, or cruise on the Moray Firth, searching out bottlenose dolphins. It is very peaceful, especially if you’ve just been ghost-hunting… The River Ness flows through Inverness, and salmon fishermen come during the summer, even where the river runs right through the city’s center. High above the city is Inverness Castle, a unique Victorian built of red sandstone. Just below the castle is the museum and Art Gallery which runs exhibitions and workshops for kids. The main shopping area fans out from there in three directions, and includes a lively gathering place where pipers and other musicians get together and make music.
