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.

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.

Well presented cottage 30 minutes walk from town centre, comfortable and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has all you need for your holiday. Comfortably furnished with well kept gardens and all the kitchen equipment you will need to feed family and do your laundry if you wish. Has good wifi internet and modern big flat screen TV that has a selection of inputs including USB (even has printer available).

There is a small group of shops just over the road including a Fish and Chip shop and a Chemists.

Ideally placed for trips by car to attractions around Inverness and is within an easy 30 minute walk of the town centre.
