With Burns Night soon approaching in Inverness, we thought we’d take a moment to think on Scotland’s greatest poet: full of words of wisdom that resonate with us at Achnagairn.
My Heart’s in the Highlands
So goes one of Robbie Burns’s most famous lines of poetry. Since his poems were published back in the eighteenth century, these lines have captured hearts and imaginations. The Scots’ most famous poet is particularly relevant for us at Achnagairn – situated 7 miles from Inverness up in the Highlands. Though a weekend spent at Achnagairn may come to an end, we are sure there is always a bit of our guests’ hearts left up in the Highlands – all those happy memories of a beautiful Scottish stay.
But to see her was to love her, love but her, and love forever.
Achnagairn’s beautiful ballroom is our pride and joy: a fairy tale location to tie the knot. Robert Burns’ beautiful line is of great inspiration to us – for lovers who know that their partner is the only one for them, and are keen to embark on a lifetime of happiness together, Achnagairn is just the place to begin!
There is no such uncertainty as a sure thing.
This powerful line is one we’re not so sure about – at Achnagairn, you can dispel any uncertainty about your stay. It is sure to be glorious! Whether you are visiting us for a wedding, or staying in one of our individual bedrooms, we can promise you your stay will be spectacular!
Well, on January 25th as we all know, he has his big day! And how best to celebrate this great Scot? With a Burns Night Inverness Party! At Achnagairn, you can either take an individual bedroom in our Lodges, or a whole lodge itself to celebrate with family and friends! These wonderful lodges are some of the best accommodation the Highlands have to offer – get away from the stresses of city life, and book a stay with us to explore Robert Burns’ famous Highlands. Two are Scotland-themed: Great Scott Lodge (very appropriate!) and The Stag Lodge. With plenty to do (besides admire the décor!), from charming walks to whisky tastings and tours of Loch Ness, you will not be disappointed!
