I popped into the café on my bike ride last week. The ladies made me extremely welcome and cooked me the finest bacon butty I've ever had. Lean and crispy perfection!

Yes, this is a genuine large old mill on the banks of the River Ness (which originally powered the mill machinery). It's located at the very edge of the city on the right (East) bank of the Ness. And yes, the company bears an old and respected name. And yes again, there are old looms and other weaving equipment on... More

Noticed a difference in the variety of men and women's clothes available - didn't take us long to get round the shop. Cafe food was average. Chips need improving. Requested chips to be in a separate bowl for sharing (twice) but they arrived with panini. Average price for lunch food.

Location: Situated on Dores Road, approximately 1.5 miles from the city center on a bus route. Parking for coaches and cars. Toilets are in a separate block located in the car park. These premises are on a steep slope. Typically a large Scottish Tartan Retail Shop with lots of interesting and unusual gift ideas. Tartans, blankets, whiskies, food, suitcases, dishes,... More

This store proposes a large number of different articles (clothes, shoes, souvenirs, whisky, golf equipment, kiltmaker items .....) to prices often interesting. Very large choice. This store well deserves a visit.

This place is geared for an older market. Lots of clothing and things for sale that should have been thrown out. Some bargains though if you look hard enough.

My wife was looking forward to a shopping expedition to Holm Mills Shopping Centre after seeing it mentioned in a holiday brochure. It purports to be a high class shopping centre on the site of the original James Pringle Weavers at the edge of Inverness. We were shocked to find a ragbag of sheds that would not have been out...
