What a weekend for RockNess! Glorious sunshine, temperatures hitting the twenties, no rain and Loch Ness full of celebrities from the music world. Reverend and The Makers from Sheffield were spotted getting together after a successful gig at the venue, as well as Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim.
Thanks to all who took our advice and came to Loch Ness this weekend and hopefully you enjoyed your Jacobite Cruise and RockNess.
The next big date on our Highland Calendar is The Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Golf Open at Castle Stuart, Inverness.
The dates for your diary are July 11th to 14th so come and see some of the world’s finest golfers before The British Open. Jeev Milkah Singh will be defending the title he won last year. Seemingly the course is in the best ever condition, so it will put all golfers’ skills to the ultimate test. Pack your golf clubs and head north as there are also some excellent golf courses around our area: Royal Dornoch, Nairn, Aviemore and Inverness. We have an excellent municipal course, Torvean, right next to our base at Tomnahurich, so once you have played you can join us for a cruise.
To get to know the area a City Sightseeing Inverness open-top bus tour can also be arranged by either booking on line or why not pop into our office at Inverness Bus Station, where you will also be able to get transport out to Castle Stuart to save taking the car and avoid the stress of parking.
Finally, as our correspondent was telling you last week about the attention Loch Ness receives in the press and TV, we’ve spotted in the newspapers that “NESSIE” is to feature in a spectacular extravaganza in The City of Derry to celebrate the European City of Culture. The event is to involve Saint Columba who has one of the earliest recorded sightings of the lady herself at Loch Ness, St. Columba himself hailing from Ireland.
We might invite the players over to Scotland to do a repeat performance for everybody here at Loch Ness, so that our good friends in Ireland can pay us a visit here in the Scottish Highlands – visitors can access Inverness via direct flights from Belfast.
