Spring in the beautiful Highlands!

Spring has well and truly arrived in the Highlands, as these pictures taken yesterday show.

Richard Jones of Moyness House left Inverness at 6.30 in the morning to ride the Iron Butt Association of America‘s Saddlesore 1000 certified 1000 miles in 24 hours motorcycle ride (he got back to Inverness at 2.30 am, 20 hours later!) He couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful day on which to embark on such a lunatic venture! (He was successful and now awaits the all important certificate).

Richard got some great shots of beautiful Highland scenery bathed in sunshine.

Inverness winter scene – the River Ness

Inverness is still experiencing cold and sunny weather, and is looking very beautiful draped in snow. The continuing poor weather in the south of the UK is disrupting visitors’ plans, but for those lucky enough to be here at the moment they are seeing the city centre and the surrounding landscape are a real winter wonderland.

Inverness Guest House Association members are reporting a quiet time just now, following the very busy period between Christmas and the New Year. If you’re considering a visit to Inverness to enjoy the wintry beauty, check out our Inverness bed and breakfast association website to see a selection of the best places to stay in Inverness. IGHA is the leading organisation for quality accommodation in Inverness, and all members are located within the city and all have been quality assessed by the AA or VisitScotland.
