You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Raigmore Hospital

Old Perth Rd, Inverness IV2 3UJ, UK – 01463 704000

My husband was seen very quickly when he was admitted to a&e which is important and the staff were friendly. However, I feel they could have provided more advice upon leaving as my husband does not know what to do with his dressings and has not been prescribed any painkillers and is in a lot of pain.

My husband and I recently had the unfortunate experience of being in a car accident and we're admitted to Raigmore. Both of us can't fault the treatment we have received down from our consultants through to the whole care team doctors nurses domestic staff kitchen staff and volunteers. Thankyou to all from the bottom of our hearts from Lynne and Trevor Stallard.

Kinmylies Medical Practice

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Inverness

The Mustard Seed Restaurant

16 Fraser St, Inverness IV1 1DW, UK – 01463 220220

Nice food! I had goat's cheese with honey dressing and fig! Then venison for main. Good for a night out! Didn't have the nicest view but there are tables with a river view!

Mussels were excellent and nice ambiance but the Lamb was not exceptional and the risotto was bland - returned two dishes with very little eaten. We were really looking forward to this restaurant but it did not meet expectations. The chef was made aware of our opinion and no concessions were made. We liked The River House much more.

The Kitchen Restaurant

15 Huntly St, Inverness IV3 5PR, UK – 01463 259119

Well prepared and presented food in a good location with river views. We just turned up and got put on the ground floor. The kitchen is open at the back of the restaurant and it is a busy place. The bustle of staff around our table was noticeable. Would suggest booking ahead for a table at the front of the building, maybe upstairs.

After walking past this restaurant on a 2 night visit to Inverness I decided it looked too lovely not to book. I phoned the next day and decided to make a reservation for that night and requested a window seat. After arriving back into town earlier than expected I phoned and changed our reservation, although they couldn't give us a window seat, we were sat on the top floor on a spacious table looking out to the view. The service was excellent, the food was delicious - we both chose from the early special menu - I had arrancini which was gorgeous and the steak with black pudding (although they were kind enough to substitute the pudding for potatoes as I don't eat pork) and it was delicious, cooked to perfection. We were also given a side of vegetables gratis. Such a beautifully designed restaurant and a super splendid evening.

Lorimers Family Restaurant

18-20 Harbour Rd, Inverness IV1 1RY, UK – 01463 712102

Not too bad although the quality of food has dropped a little over time. Friendly staff and not too long waits. An extensive menu covering main meals and chippy meals. Reasonably priced

Driven past this place a million times but today was my first time eating here. Came here for lunch and found it to be nothing like I was expecting. Nice homely cafe area and conservatory for sitting and eating in. Food was great and portion sizes were above average. All in all a nice place.
