Last Friday the Inverness Courier ran an article about the sudden closure of the Windsor Hotel. They spoke to one or two people but didn't really get any closer to the specific reason or reasons for the closure. They did speak to folk about the history of the hotel though, details which make the closure of this landmark of the town's tourism and social scene even more poignant.
The Courier spoke to former owner Rosemary Young who sold the hotel in 2008. Rosemary has her finger on the tourism pulse and perhaps we should be very concerned about a comment she made. She told the Courier: "It must be a sign of the times. There won't be any hotels left in Nairn at this rate."
