My partner and I were travelling through the Highlands and since he asked me to be his wife at Eildon Donan Castle (I accepted) we decided to stay across from the castle for a night. There isn’t much around the area of Dornie and we didn’t wish to run around looking for somewhere to stay so when the inn keeper advised that he had one room left we grabbed it. It wasn’t a great room especially for 100 pounds (expensive) and the place most likely has some nicer rooms but we didn’t mind as it was somewhere to stay and we could see the castle from our table at breakfast.
Once again (on our travels) we came across a very SOFT bed, which was difficult to get comfortable as we kept rolling into each other in the middle. One bigger problem though was that at sun set and sun rise midges are prevalent in this area and it appears that our room wasn’t as sealed as it should be so we ended up sleeping with a few midges and having to spray ourselves and take some antihistamines. Breakfast was lovely and the staff were also really good.....but upon mentioning that we just got engaged we didn’t get much of a reaction from the guy at reception....
