Of all the memorable hotels I’ve visited in Britain, The Anderson in Fortrose near Inverness is the one I’m most eager to return to. The thoughtfulness and attention to detail of owners, Jim and Anne Anderson set this nine-room hotel apart. We were treated with such warmth and thoughtfulness we felt like favorite friends. Our room was quite pleasant with much thought given to our comfort. The whisky bar was a congenial place where locals as well as hotel guests go. The food in the restaurant at The Anderson was worth going out of the way for. Anne is a cook with style and taste and foods I enjoyed there ranged from falafel to mutton. One night when the dining room was crowded, a family had a fussy toddler. Jim (a marvelous man of many talents) who was filling several roles in both dining room and kitchen, quickly brought a toy to the table that kept the child busy and quiet. On our last day at the hotel, we planned to leave before the regular breakfast hour. Jim said he’d be glad to fix breakfast for us. We insisted that wasn’t necessary. So he said at least he could leave a French press coffee maker by our door for our morning wake up. Although we had been there for nine days, we were reluctant to leave and so glad that we had discovered this hotel.
