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.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Inverness is bathed in sunlight today and the snow has finally started to thaw – too late, unfortunately, to save the Hogmanay Party planned for last night but cancelled due to severe weather conditions. But a good time was had by all thanks to all the great music venues and restaurants in Inverness, and the coming weekend also promises to be busy.

Moyness House has had a cancellation for the next few days, so if you’re planning to spend the first weekend of 2010 in Inverness, give us a call on 01463 233836, or visit our website.
