  • "Iona was lovely and was in touch with us just before our departure to say that we didn’t have to bring a few things as provided and we could have got into cabin earlier if we had wanted too which was over and above what she needed to do ."

    There was a fantastic welcome pack which was again above and beyond anything I have seen before and she made sure we celebrated our honeymoon in style . Cabin immaculate and had everything you needed for our stay so quiet and yet so close to all amenities. Perfect place perfect views perfect hosts . Would highly recommend.

    Thank you Carol for your lovely review. Delighted you both enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon, Property Owner

The property

Core-na-bye is a brilliant, one-bedroom holiday home situated on the outskirts of Inverness, Scottish Highlands.

Boasting stunning views of Beauly Firth and the surrounding countryside, this open-plan property offers shared driveway parking, contemporary interiors, and a superb location just a brief drive from the nearest amenities, serving as a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a couple seeking a refreshing, self-catered escape.

Step through the doorway into Core-na-bye and be welcomed into an elegant living space, finished to a high standard.

The bright kitchen is well-equipped and can be utilised to whip up a delicious, romantic meal for two, which can be enjoyed over a bottle of wine at the breakfast bar.

After dinner, retire to the sitting area and relax on the sumptuous sofa as you take in the tranquillity of this stunning landscape through the patio doors, or stick a film on the Sky Glass Smart TV as you plan the rest of your stay.

As day rolls into night, refresh with a rejuvenating shower before you finally settle down for valuable rest in the inviting king-size bedroom, recharging for the excitement of a brand-new day.

Start the morning with a cup of coffee, savoured out front on the deck, as you gaze out upon the idyllic waters of Beauly Firth on the horizon.

When ready, head out to explore the town of Inverness, the capital of the Highlands and a vibrant city boasting an array of independent shops, top-notch restaurants, bars, museums, and historic sites.

Take a stroll along the River Ness or Ness Islands and admire the beauty of the cityscape before venturing to the nearby attractions, which include the Inverness Botanic Gardens, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, and Balnain House.

Visit North Kessock, a charming village surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, or the quaint village of Dores, the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll or a picnic with views of the beautiful Loch Ness.

Why not take a day trip to Tomatin, where you can join a tour of the famous Tomatin whisky distillery or explore the breath-taking landscapes of the Cairngorms National Park, home to an impressive selection of wildlife and outstanding vistas.

Your adventures in the Highlands await at Core-na-bye.

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.
