About Graham

Graham grew up in Inverness before leaving to go to University in Edinburgh in 1986. He has always been extremely fond of Inverness and the Highlands and has retained close connections to the town (now city). He has many relatives and friends living in the city and gets back as often as he can, especially in the football season as he and his father are long-standing season ticket holders with the mighty Inverness Caley Thistle.

Graham bought a property in Inverness back in 2006, initially for his own use, but he started renting out to visitors in 2009 (see http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p441785). In 2012, he was able to acquire Kinmylies Farmhouse, which had long been one of his favourite properties.

His mother, Margaret, manages both rental properties and delights in meeting guests from around the world.

Graham purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Graham chose Inverness

The house is central enough to allow access to the city centre amenities but also offers easy walking access to some of the best walks in the area. These include the Caledonian Canal, the Great Glen Way and forest walks in Craig Dunain.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Beautiful traditional farmhouse with magnificent views over Inverness.

lovely cottage ,great views.

  • 5 of 5

Was great having choice of two sitting rooms, only down side, no telly in one,as we were three generations there who didn't agree.

Cottage was lovely and clean, had everything you would need.

Margaret was always just a call away.

We will be back.

Perfect for us in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming house, very conveniently located in a quiet area with parking. The bedrooms are upstairs and the single bathroom downstairs, but that was no problem for us., In all respects we had everything we needed in total comfort - including a washer and dryer. Most of all, when we left, we mistakenly left a pair of hiking boots behind. Margaret texted us as soon as she spotted them, and took care of packaging and shipping them to the hotel we were headed to - with no reward or compensation except our thanks!! Great people, great house, great city to visit. Would stay there again for sure if we were to return to Inverness.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect! It was a short walk into Inverness and had every convenience. The home and gardens are well maintained, and the house was very clean and tidy. We were travelling with another couple and it was very comfortable for 4 adults. We will definitely be returning in the future.
