Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Shona and Ian's house in Inverness. There were eight of us and we were perfectly comfortable. We had a large eight seater van and it fit just fine in the off street parking. The house itself is a beautiful old stone house and the furniture was of nice quality and comfortable. The location was great, it is a short walk to the shopping center and to downtown Inverness. We walked into town every day for meals and exploration. Shona and Ian were very accommodating and went out of their way to ensure our comfort.

Lovely, roomy house in a comfortable neighborhood, walking distance to town.

  • 4 of 5

We spent five nights in this lovely house in Inverness in July 2018. It is in a very nice and safe neighborhood and is easy walking distance to town. Five bedrooms, modern kitchen, large dining room for family dining. There is also a comfortable front sitting room with flat screen television, abundant reading material and information of local interests. Finally, there is a large private garden for ending those long summer days with a cool beverage. I highly recommend this house for your visit to Northern Scotland.

The place is in extremely good shape, is very well equipped with all amenities and necessities, very close to the city center in a nice and quiet residential area.
