  • "Five star property in a five star location."

    Everything went according to plan from start to finish, except the weather!

  • "We spent two weeks at the Nook in November and we could not have made a better choice."

    The apartment had everything you could possibly need, was spotless and in a quiet and restful location with plenty parking spaces. The very helpful owners met us on arrival and fully explained how everything worked. There is a very well stocked shop and a pharmacy across the road. Nearby there is a cafe. I have no hesitation in recommending The Nook as a perfect base whilst holidaying in the area.

    An excellent location for exploring the highlands and very convenient for the airport. If you do fly in, you do need a hire car. The owner and his staff were very helpful and attentive.

  • "This property did not disappoint."

    Spotlessly clean and well appointed we spent a great week here in this newly built “village” . It was a fantastic location for exploring not only nearby towns, villages and battlefield, but we spent one day going to John o’groats which was a long journey but so worth it. A cruise on Loch Ness was beautiful as was the drive around it. We would certainly stay here again.

  • "A very quiet, smart, contemporary 2nd floor apartment in a 'new' village."

    Excellent location just a short drive from the main Inverness to Nairn road. Allocated parking right opposite the main door to the apartment block. The apartment had everything we needed for a great week in this part of Scotland. Highly recommended.

  • "Very welcoming hosts."

    The apartments has everything you would need for a comfortable stay including a welcome pack. The WiFi is very good. The Tornagrain mini market is across the road with a complete range of goods. The area is quiet with some pleasant local walks and is an ideal base for touring the wider area. It should be noted that it is in Tornagrain which is a new ‘model village’ development. The property is 9 miles from Inverness city and 1.5 from the airport. The village is served by two bus routes one of which stops at the airport.

    This special find was perfect for us as we had been shielding for 5 months and in need of a change of scenery in a part of the country we love.The apartment itself is stunning, showroom condition with all you could ask for and more. Gary the host met with us on arrival to show us around and explain how things work etc, and was at the end of the phone or just 10 minutes away if we needed him(which we didnt). Absolutely brilliant place to stay and would recommend to anyone, the best place we have stayed and will definitely be back. Thank you Gary and Yvonne

  • "We were welcomed by a friendly and helpful host to the Nook."

    It was well equipped with everything you might need and beautifully decorated. The living room was very comfortable and had a smart TV which we found very useful! Although the property is new and has double glazing, it is right next to a road, which although small, was fairly busy. So there was some traffic noise which made it slightly less than peaceful, especially with the construction on nearby new properties starting at around 6.30am (but I do live in the countryside so this probably wouldn't be a problem for some people). I also found the bed was hard, although this is a matter of preference, and my friend who I was with found her bed fine - we did however both find the pillows to be uncomfortable.

About the location


Inverness 3.9 miles; Cawdor 10.7 miles; Nairn 13 miles

Three miles east of Inverness is the village of Culloden in Scotland, famed for being the site of the Battlefield of Culloden, the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745 on Culloden Moor. Today the National Trust for Scotland has a visitor centre which is a popular tourist attraction, which hosts an interactive battle experience with an immersion film battle room. The village was originally made up of estate houses surrounding the Culloden House, but is now home to several holiday homes. Located in Culloden Woods is ‘Clootie Well’ where brightly coloured rags are hung as offerings from those wishing to be cured of ailments. The Cairns of Clava are also close by; a group of Bronze Age burial mounds.
