Iolaire Mannachie Grove, Forres, IV36 2WE, United Kingdom – Great location - show map
I am married to Tez who loves his old MGB (Harvey) and we've lived in Forres for over thirty years. Tez does graphic design and has a studio at Logie Steading about five miles out of town.. I'm a Scottish quine, originally from Speyside (malt whisky country) and many years ago lived in Germany for two and a half years - though my German isn't that great. As a Christian I'm busy with book groups, ladies breakfasts and retreats - I also volunteer as a School Pastor. I love singing. I have an egg/dairy free diet - happy to stock up if you require the same - please let me know. I am interested in people and enjoy spending time with family/friends, going out for meals/theatre/cinema and accompanying Tez (and Harvey) on their wee trips. Now the children have their own lives I'm excited at the prospect of traveling more - especially to Italy, Scandinavia and the Hebridean Islands. Still trying to talk Tez into a cruise one day! I'm looking forward to having you stay with us and helping you discover all the wonderful places nearby that you might otherwise miss.
Our comfortable, modern house offers a 'home stay' experience rather than a conventional B&B. The pretty town of Forres has easy access from Inverness/Aberdeen. Excellent public transport links. An ideal base for those wishing to explore Speyside and the Highlands: • Distilleries - take your pick there are over fifty within an hour's drive • Castles - Cawdor, Brodie, Urquhart, etc • Beaches - Findhorn, Nairn, Hopeman, Lossiemouth, etc • Loch Ness/Fort Augustus • Cairngorm National Park • River Findhorn and River Spey both offer stunning scenery IolaireBNB is within easy walking distance of Forres town centre, with its pubs and restaurants, a lovely public park that has formal gardens as well as Cluny Hill, Nelson's Tower. Also handy for way-marked footpaths and cycle tracks including The Dava Way. Good for couples and business people.
Friendly Forres hosts an annual Highland Games, a broad appeal Arts Festival and world class piping competitions among a host of other community events. There are beautiful gardens and open spaces throughout the town. Superb panoramic views from both Nelson Tower and nearby Califer Hill. Huge choice of things to see and do within easy range - water sports , canoeing, mountain sports, skiing, white water rafting, cycle touring, off road driving, museums, galleries, castles (Brodie/Cawdor being the nearest), Morayvia - an aerospace/science centre, numerous distilleries, loads of golf courses, lovely sandy (and often empty) beaches, forest trails... Close proximity to the town's amenities and the countryside. An ideal base for touring The Highlands, the Moray Firth coast and Speyside (for Whisky distilleries). There's a good golf course in town but dozens more within easy access.
