  • “The cottage was lovely and spacious with a nice big kitchen and cosy log burner in the dining area.”

    It was in the perfect spot for exploring Inverness and the North Coast 500, which was ideal for what we had planned for our holiday. Located on the River Ness, a stone's throw from the castle this delightful cottage facilitated our holiday needs well, with all the amenities close by for convenience, although we felt as though it didn't fully meet our expectations on cleanliness unfortunately.

    It was in the perfect spot for exploring Inverness and the North Coast 500, which was ideal for what we had planned for our holiday. Located on the River Ness, a stone's throw from the castle this delightful cottage facilitated our holiday needs well, with all the amenities close by for convenience, although we felt as though it didn't fully meet our expectations on cleanliness unfortunately. The kitchen in particular could have been cleaner and we found the light switch in the living room was damaged. We also felt the living room got quite cold with there only being one radiator in there. All in all a lovely place to stay with a nice big bath tub overlooking the river in the front bathroom at the top of the stairs, great for indulging after a long day's walking the northern Munros.

    - Chloe Jones, October 2020

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. We also appreciate you making us aware of those issues that did not meet your expectations as this enables us to rectify them straight away. We have instructed our local agent to immediately inspect the light switch and to replace or repair the problem as required. We had not personally found the temperature in the lounge to be a problem in the years we lived at this property, and we are sorry to hear that you felt it got too cool. We do allow our guests to turn up the central heating to whatever level is comfortable for them; also the woodburner in the dining room disseminates heat throughout the ground floor which enhances the heat from the radiators. However, we will check the controls on the lounge radiator to see if this needs attention. We are very sorry to hear that cleanliness did not meet your expectations. You have every right to expect a very high standard and we fully appreciate how frustrating it can be if standards are not met. Our cottage is managed by a local agent who is very aware of how important cleanliness is to our guests. His standards are usually very good and we can only imagine that his team of cleaners took their eye off the ball on this occasion. He has been notified of your comments and will look into what happened. He has also assured us that this will not happen again. We are very sorry that this occurred on your visit. As you seem to have very much enjoyed your stay other than the aforementioned issues, we sincerely hope that you will visit again in the future. - Sykes owner relations

The property

A pretty terraced cottage on the banks of the River Ness in the centre of the vibrant city of Inverness, the capital of the Highlands.

This is an ideal location for visitors who want to travel without a car as access to the airport, train station and bus station is easy.

For those with a car this makes a perfect base from which to tour the Highlands themselves.

The cottage is spacious and welcoming with no less than three bathrooms.

The ground floor has a lovely open plan kitchen and dining room where meals can be easily prepared and enjoyed in front of the cosy woodburning stove.

The bedrooms are on the first floor along with the main bathroom.

A soak in the bath whilst looking out over the river to the lights of the city is encouraged.

On pleasant days the private rear garden is a relaxing spot for a quiet read or morning coffee.

This cottage is ideally located close to a great range of facilities and yet is quietly tucked away in a peaceful and tranquil location with lovely views over the river.

There is also plenty of quality restaurants and lively pubs to enjoy in the evenings.

Why not take a walk along the banks of the river and cross the popular Ness Islands, over the suspension bridges and back into town?

On this walk you could well see otters close to the river bank so do take your camera.

From here a day trip over the sea to Skye makes a great day out, or perhaps take the Malt Whisky Trail and partake in a sample or two.

This riverside cottage is perfect and ensures a wonderful holiday at any time of the year.

About the location

INVERNESS

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.
