  • Mrs Mccleary

    “My family and I had a lovely last minute break in Inverness.”

    The owner greeted us with a big smile and was happy to help with any queries we had. We all loved how close the accommodation was to the City Centre (10 minute walk ). The cottage was clean and tidy with an abundance of fresh towels and having a washing machine was an added bonus. The only drawback was the heating, which seemed to be controlled by the main house but the fire was a lovely centre point in the living room. It was a nice base to explore Inverness and the surrounding area.

The property

Resting a short distance away from the excitement of the city centre of Inverness is this semi-detached, all ground-floor property, The Sheiling.

This is a wonderful find for a couple or small family seeking a city break and to explore the majestic landscape of this part of Scotland and northeast coast.

Begin your adventure by stepping into the warming aura of the dwelling and relaxing into your evening within the light-filled open-plan living room, offering a social space to gather.

Flick on the electric fire to allow a gentle warmth to fill the room as you sink into the sofa and browse the TV channels, a great way to unwind after a busy day.

Joining the space is the contemporary kitchen area, where you can keep the chef of the group company by sitting at the sleek breakfast bar with a glass of wine, whilst dinner simmers on the ceramic hob or bakes in the electric oven.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the two bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each boasting a traditional interior and their own en-suite shower rooms.

To the outside, you will find off-road parking for your car (so you do not have to worry about the usual stresses of parking in a city) and a patio area, boasting table and chairs for a spot of alfresco dining.

When you do not feel like cooking or seeking a special spot for a celebration, head into the city centre, where you will find a plethora of cafés, bars, restaurants and pubs, as well as a range of shops for obligatory gifts and essentials.

Once you have found a spot to eat, look forward to immersing yourself in the local folklore as you explore the magnificent architecture of Inverness Castle, or visit the historical Knocknagael Boar Stone, before spending some time in the Inverness Cathedral.

From here, you can look forward to exploring the surrounding countryside of the Scottish Highlands, home to the majestic Loch Ness, the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle and participate in some outdoor adventure pursuits at Aviemore or sample some beverages at Speyside Whiskey and Distillery Trail.

If you are feeling more active, choose to hike up Craig Phadrig or wander through the Merkinch Local Nature Reserve or travel further afield to the Cairngorms National Park for some breath-taking scenery.

The Sheiling promises to be a special space to return to at the end of each exciting day.

About the location


North Kessock 5.9 miles; Dores 9.2 miles; Tomatin 15.5 miles.

The Capital of the Highlands, the city of Inverness, is the gateway to the countless delights of the Highlands of Scotland. Towering mountains, dark lochs, great forests and precipitous sea cliffs are all within easy reach. Of particular note is the legendary Loch Ness, which is surrounded by some truly breathtaking scenery, although most visitors are usually on the lookout for something a bit more mysterious! Just outside the city is the Culloden Battlefield at Culloden Moor (National Trust). The site of the last major battle fought on British soil, there is an award-winning display depicting the battle, whilst a walk on the field serves as a poignant reminder of the clansmen who lost their lives. Inverness itself has much to offer, museums, an art gallery, fine theatre and leisure facilities, not to mention shops, pubs and restaurants. The River Ness flows through the city and both the river and neighbouring Moray Firth are home to a diverse range of wildlife and marine life including red kites, along with dolphins, which can sometimes be seen from the shore, or on trips from the harbour.
