Caledonian Hotel, Inverness

The Caledonian Hotel in Inverness boasted in its advertising that it was 'patronised by royalty' and this splendid four-poster bed bears the arms of the Prince of Wales, with his motto 'Ich Dien'. The lion and unicorn are standing on a plant which bears simultaneously the plant badges of Scotland (thistle), England (rose) and Ireland (shamrock). The Caledonian Hotel was built in 1776. It was sold in 1930 for £18,500 to the lessee, Frank Steven. The hotel boasted fine views over the river Ness and now occupies a more modest building on the same site
