Another favorite of ours and again, the early menu is great value though a smaller selection. Seasonal menus make it an interesting place to go anytime of the year. The trout is Heather's fav! Booking is a must unless you want a 9.30pm dinner

More of a pub than restaurant, but the pub food is always good. A great place to hangout outside looking over the castle as well as a snug restaurant section for those cozy nights.

Great location on the shores of Loch Ness! Get the mixed board in the starter section!! You'll need to book ahead for here. Definitely worth the short drive down. Check if you can arrange a lift back as they do have a people carrier for groups.

A great place to stop off for home made meals, cakes and local farm produce. Their selection of Gins is pretty impressive too! From here, you often see the local seals basking on rocks in the sunshine

Simply, the best pie shop!! You can get sweet and savory pies and I can recommend the venison and cranberry pie for 1st course then the pear, chocolate and almond pie for dessert! Worth the 2 hour drive to get them! get them to go and hot, then head off to Ardvreck Castle to eat them surrounded by stunning scenery!

They sell pizza from a wood-fired oven, but the reason to go is their fantastic selection of beers! There bewery is on the Black Isle (hence the name) and you can sample all that they brew including a selection of guest ales. I love it!

Although not an attraction, the viewing platform will open this Easter which gives great views of the city and surrounding area. The castle is a relatively new build after being sacked after the battle of culloden and is currently used as a court house.

Site of the last pitched battle on British soil, this site and visitor centre offers an insight into the Jacobite Raising, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the knock on effects that has shaped our culture here in the Highlands. The battlefield is free to wander around, but the centre has an entry fee, but worth it in our opinion.

Site of 4000 year old burial chambers, now made famous by the TV series Outlander. I recommend going late in the afternoon as the sun goes down as it's really atmospheric but also usually much quieter.

Build after the battle of Culloden, this is the largest barracks in Europe and is still a working garrison. There's a really interesting museum here too. Also a good place to spot the dolphins in the Moray Firth
