Breakfast is served each morning in Lynver’s bright and sunny dining room – usually between the hours of 8.00am and 9.00am. Earlier breakfasts can be arranged, and for those requiring a really early start, a delicious, healthy (but with a few treats!), packed breakfast can be prepared for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Lynver offers an extensive & delectable menu, ranging from the traditional cooked Scottish breakfast (sausages, black pudding, bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms etc.) to fish dishes, vegetarian options and a mouthwatering continental platter — very refreshing yet surprisingly filling. You can always start the day with other traditional Scottish breakfast options, such as porridge (made with oatmeal) and topped with salt, brown sugar, honey, sultanas – etc. Where possible fresh local produce is used, and meat comes from award winning butcher, Duncan Fraser & Son.
Any dietary requirement (within reason!) can be accommodated, if advance notice is given. Your hosts feel that breakfast is an essential part of the B&B experience, so in general will not ask you to choose your selection the night before, but instead to select from the menu in the morning. A little relaxation time is highly recommended, while your breakfast is freshly cooked to order.
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.
