On 23rd September this year autumn is officially welcomed. Until then at The Kingsmills Hotel, we continue to enjoy summer in is full regalia. Inverness and the surrounding countryside is one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland, and there are many reasons to visit all year round. However, autumn is particularly beautiful because of all the autumnal colours you will see in the surrounding glens and wooded hills, showing its true Scottish beauty.
At the Kingsmills Hotel, we find any reason to celebrate the year and autumn is no different. We look forward to welcoming you for your autumn trip and we have come up with a few things to see and do while you are here—and more the point, plenty reasons to visit. Our list is all connected to things you can do or see during autumn, and they are by no means the only five things, just our general pick.
Held in Bishop’s Road the contest consists of solo pipers vying for the top spot and includes a junior and senior competition. Held over three days the event starts at 8.30am and finishes at 5pm. If you are here for that, pop along and enjoy some expert piping.

If you never watched a game of Shinty before now is your chance. The face-paced game is of Gaelic origins and this year the extra reason to celebrate is that this final is part of a huge year in Scottish Sport.
The Beast Race
The Loch Ness Monster is probably one of the most popular legends in the world and has long been the subject of the question on many a visitor to the regions lips.

Stand with your binoculars and see if you can spot Nessie while you watch the race.
