We offer a truly Scottish, luxury experience that will allow you to explore the Highlands from the comfort of a ‘home away from home’. The house was built as a home for a minister of the Church of Scotland in 1895 and retains much of its original 19th century charm. Luxuriously updated, the guesthouse offers peace and quiet with extra special, thoughtful touches to make your stay extra amazing. Each of our five rooms come with modern features to make you comfortable – you’ll love our fresh flowers and Egyptian cotton bedding. Each bedroom’s name and interiors are inspired by local rivers, lochs and hills. Spacious and comfortable, they’re perfectly suited for a couples break or a trip with friends. You can cosy up with a film from our DVD library while tucking in to the mini bar and snack basket of Scottish treats or indulge yourself in a bubble bath with a Scottish gin. All before heading out to enjoy some live music in the town centre or a serene moonlit walk to spot animals by the river. The guesthouse is fully serviced by our small but mighty team and we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standards of house-keeping and customer service.
