It’s been a terrific year at Daviot Lodge here in Inverness. We had a busy summer and wonderful visitors from all over the world. The autumn has also been quite busy – busier than normal. We find that each time there is a U.S. election, we get a much higher percentage of American guests in October and November. Some people like a break from constant television news coverage!
Speaking of television, we have really seen the impact of the Outlander series on our business. As you will see from another blog post, we are quite close to the location where “it all started”.
Outlander fans – of both the novels and the TV series – have been visiting us in ever-greater numbers. What is wonderful for us is they come year-round, not just in the summer, when the area is already quite busy.
One of the other elements that has really taken off is the North Coast 500 -- or #NC500 in hashtag terms! This route around the north of Scotland has been likened to the famous Route 66 in the U.S. We are at the start of the route and we would love to welcome you for a few days to our farm before you head off on this epic journey!
Other highlights include our 5-star "Gold" award from Visit Scotland -- retained for another year we are pleased to say. And the AA award is retained as well.
