A fabulous two-bedroom city-centre property, perfect for exploring the museums, galleries and historic buildings in this Highland city that blends ancient history with modern living.

Escape to this gorgeous top floor apartment set upon the River Ness. This split-level property is full of quirky interiors that exude elegance. The apartment sleeps four in two large bedrooms where one carries a beautiful tartan theme that the owner designed herself. The owner's personal touches are what make this property stand out from any other; the delicious shortbread and decanter of local whisky on offer when you arrive makes you feel welcome.

Set across two levels, this is the perfect base for an exciting city break. On the lower level is the first king-size bedroom and shower room. This bedroom is a romantic space with an elegant and timeless iron bed frame and rooftop views of the city. Making your way to the upper level, you'll find the second bedroom, living area and kitchen. A distinctive feature of the property is the large window in the living room, offering spectacular views of the river and cathedral next door - you may even see a wedding or two during your stay! You could sit here for hours on end watching the world go by, or keep yourself amused by becoming engrossed in a board game or a good book. The contemporary kitchen contains modern appliances to cook up a storm, with the spacious hallway doubling up as a dining area. The luxurious second bedroom features a super king-size bed which is zip-linked and can be split into twins if needs be. There are cosy slippers for you to wear if you so wish that are stored in the 'boot store' at the door; a lovely touch to encourage you to feel at home whilst enjoying your break.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 super king zip and link (can be made as a twin on request)
  • 1 shower room with WC
  • Gas central heating, all energy included
  • Electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer
  • TV and Bluetooth speakers
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Regret no dogs
  • Please note this property is accessed via stairs
  • Shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance
  • Limited on-street parking – permit provided

Step out of the apartment and explore the city of Inverness, where there are lots of things to do from the doorstep. Vibrant restaurants and fashionable wine bars line each side of the river, so there are plenty of places to spend the evening and enjoy city life. Eden Court Theatre is also within a mile of the property so you can see a show or film and then enjoy the lively nightlife afterwards before making your way back. If that isn't your thing, there are numerous shops and cafes in the centre. Take a walk over the suspension bridges to the picturesque Ness Islands or visit one of the many historic castles within the city.

Of course, a trip to Inverness is not complete without a hunt for Nessie; Loch Ness is only 13 miles away. Here you can take in the dramatic scenery, partake in great adventure sports and explore nearby castles and solitary lighthouses. Discover 1,000 years of history at Urquhart Castle and appreciate remarkable views over Loch Ness from the ruins of the most magnificent medieval castle in the Highlands.

However you decide to spend your city break, this self-catering Inverness apartment is the perfect nest to come back to after a busy day of being out and about.

Warm welcome by Lynne, whisky and fudge, flowers and a personal postcard makes us feel like home. We loved the view from the window seat over the river Ness. At the end of the street there is a bakery for bread in the morning or just go to the kiosk along the river Ness. In Inverness there are enough restaurants and shops.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
