  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this well presented property and would definitely stay here again."

    Great location, close to city centre with plenty of eateries close at hand. However, on arrival it was obvious that the cleaning had not been thorough - mouldy plate of food in the fridge, dirty towel in the bathroom, broken toilet seat and a blocked outlet from the wash hand basin. This did not detract from our overall enjoyment but needed bringing to the owners attention .

    Hi Mr Struthers, I'm so sorry this happened on your stay and we are making sure our cleaners don't forget to clean in future! We are really glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Kind Regards, Alice Property Owner

    Perfect location right in Inverness City centre. Lots of places to eat near by and so lovely to walk along the river.

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.
