Sleeping together - at a distance

Talking of accommodation, getting seven adult males settled in to Scottish B&Bs has the potential to be a minefield of disorganisation. Divide and rule seems to be the only way, particularly in Inverness for some reason. Fortunately Fairfield Road has numerous establishments to choose from, and we managed a 5-2 split fairly easily. A suggestion that two of the snoring persuasion be billeted together drew an accusation of snorism, and a claim that such rythmical sounds are therapeutic, and beneficial to both snorer and snoree. Not in my experience they aren't....

In Stromness, the Miller's House seemed to be a guest house of both considerable age and considerable size. It swallowed our party with ease. And as for Kyle of Lochalsh, the only place to stay (apart from the others, that is) is the capacious Lochalsh Hotel, complete with Skye views. Unfortunately it charges a premium for such landscape, but I booked it anyway. What is the purpose of SMRS senior management but to negotiate a discount on arrival, in person? I shall be watching with interest.
