  • "A beautiful and stylish apartment in the heart of Inverness."

    Stunning view from the living room - I could sit and people watch all day. Kitchen had everything you could wish for and the welcome pack and information provided by the host was really helpful and comprehensive. Spotlessly clean and, as a solo traveller, I felt really safe in the apartment. Communication from the owner, Helen, was great and everything was easy and straightforward. To Helen - Thank you for letting me stay in your lovely apartment - I loved it and would definitely return!

    Hello Carolyn, Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the appartment: it is stunning watching the river and the bridge, isn't it? We will be very pleased to welcome you back. Helen Property Owner

  • "We had a very relaxed 3 nights in this cosy flat."

    Its located right infront of the river ness, the bridge created an amazing window view- you could sit there on the soft chair and witness a spectacle. The bed was comfortable and overall the flat was well equipped. I highly recommend and will come back again soon.

    Hello Shakeel, Thank you for your feedback. I completely agree with you about the view from the window: any time I am in the flat, I sit at the window and just watch all that is going on below, on the bridge and the river. We will be pleased to welcome you back. Helen Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in Scotland’s ‘Highland Capital’ of Inverness, is this superb second-floor apartment, River View, on the banks of the Ness River, at the end of the historic Grieg Street Bridge.

There are numerous restaurants close by and the city centre is only a short walk away from the city centre, bus and train stations.

Flat 10 is in the former Bell Tower which was originally built as the West Parish church in 1839, and its conversion still retains many of its original features,, such as the solid old beams and a vaulted ceiling; resulting in a light and airy living space which seems to float above the water.

Inverness is a great centre from which to explore Northern Scotland, it is within easy reach of the Loch Ness, the Caledonian Canal, Culloden Battlefield, the beaches and golf courses of the East, the beaches and golf courses of the East, the spectacular Highland scenery of Glen Affric, and a host of activities in Cairngorms National Park.

The countryside is varied, from the fertile, rolling farmland of the coast to inland moorlands, lochs and rugged mountains; this unspoilt landscape provides a haven for many species of wildlife from red deer and squirrels to the dolphins at Chanonry Point and rare birds such as the Slavonian Grebe.

There are ideas in the Guest Information pack, and the owner likes to make suggestions for your particular interests based on her extensive knowledge, derived from 40 years of living in this area.

There is free parking at the front of the building and convenient permit parking on the street right alongside.

The property truly has the wow factor, which guests will notice as they enter the main room and look out of the floor-length window at the glorious views of the bridge and river; both resting just a stone’s throw away!

Once settled in, pull forward a chair, and watch for a seal chasing a salmon up river, and enjoy the throng of people crossing the Victorian bridge, or sit back on the sofa with a glass of fizz, catching up on your favourite show on the TV.

There are several highly regarded restaurants close by, as well as a supermarket, hot food takeaways, a pharmacist and a newsagent.

You may prefer to prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen with the handy dishwasher, and settle down to enjoy a romantic meal at the dining table as you raise a toast to a relaxing getaway whilst watching the river flow past.

Set out for the day and head into the bustling city of Inverness, where you will be spoilt for choice for things to do!

Or venture up-river to the walking trails on the Ness Islands, passing numerous restaurants and the Eden Court Theatre.

Venture to the well-known Inverness Castle which overlooks the River Ness, where you can visit The Castle Viewpoint attraction to experience breath-taking panoramic views of the city and its surrounding areas.

Check out art galleries and shops with local produce.

Keen fishermen can purchase a permit to fish for salmon on the River Ness from February to mid-October.

Golfers are spoilt for choice with two courses in Inverness, and nearby Castle Stuart, Fort Augustus, Aigas, Boat of Garten and Dornoch.

Just a short drive away is the legendary Loch Ness, with a variety of boat trips, where you can enjoy captivating scenery whilst trying to spot the legendary monster lurking in the depths.

Travel the short distance to the North Kessock, where you can enjoy gorgeous views along the North Kessock Community Pier and stop for a sweet treat at White Cottage Tea Room whilst you watch the world go by.

River View is a home-away-from-home where you can enjoy making long-lasting memories with your loved ones.

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.
