About the property

Spacious 3 Bedroom Apartment, A Few Minutes Walk From Inverness City Centre, The River Ness And Eden Court

First floor Victorian Apartment in the very heart of Inverness. With three bedrooms and two large reception rooms, this spacious apartment, with private off street parking, is in a quiet residential street while being only a few minutes walk from the city centre, River Ness and the many fine restaurants that Inverness has to offer.

We have refurbished our apartment with wooden floorings and carpets, fresh and light decor throughout and finished it with nice modern furniture, curtains and bedding, but we have retained the Victorian charm and features so the apartment offers a peaceful modern yet traditional and homely feel.

The front door with etched glass panel is at street level behind traditional solid wood storm doors and leads to a wide carpeted staircase that sweeps round onto the first floor. Here you will find the master bedroom, bathroom, large living room and a spacious dining/living room which leads through to the well equipped kitchen. There is the added bonus of a back door in the kitchen which leads to an external staircase and down to the shared garden and drying green below.

Through door in the living room you will find a second staircase which leads up to the twin bedded room and the single bedded room. Both with good headroom and of good size. The stairs to these extra bedrooms are steep and a little quirky so we feel they are not suitable for young children or people with limited mobility.

Inverness is a vibrant city with lots to see and do and the surrounding area has spectacular scenery. Our apartment is a perfect location from which to explore. The city itself is both delightful and thriving. There are lovely riverside walks along the River Ness and around the Ness Islands which are overlooked by the Castle on the skyline. There is seating along the walks on which to rest and enjoy the surroundings. Eden Court Theatre and Cinema, which is a pleasant walk from the apartment could be the venue for a movie or show after a nice meal along the riverside. A large leisure centre, an ice rink and a wide selection of shops, cafes and excellent restaurants all make Inverness a desirable place to visit.

Our "Victorian Apartment - Heart of Inverness" has a facebook page where I hope to post updates regarding the Apartment and on events and things happening in and around Inverness.

I can of course be messaged direct via the "Victorian Apartment - Heart of Inverness, Bonnie Scotland" facebook page with any questions or queries regarding Inverness or our Apartment, which I would be happy to answer.

About Mrs Claire Venn-McNeil

We were brought up in a small village in the Highlands of Scotland near Fort William, and have stayed to raise our children here too. We bought this house in Inverness as it is such a lovely city with so much to offer, and there is so much to see and do in the surrounding area.

Mrs Claire Venn-McNeil purchased this house in 2013

Why Mrs Claire Venn-McNeil chose Inverness

Fell in love with this 1890 Victorian Apartment on first viewing. So much character in a lovely peaceful Street, yet so close to the very heart of the city.

What makes this house unique

Central location.

Car not necessary but with so much to see further afield using our house as a base, it is an added bonus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A fantastic place to stay"

I stayed here with friends for a weekend away to Inverness in June. What a brilliant find. Booking was easy and efficient, the apartment itself is modern with beautiful soft furnishings and a very well stocked kitchen. It even had a Tassimo coffee machine and a dishwasher!! Lovely comfortable beds and luxury bed linen made for a fab stay. The apartment has a fresh and bright feel to it but still manges to feel cosy and homely. I would definitely come back and have been recommending it to all my friends. It's a few minutes walk from the city centre with off road parking. Absolutely lovely.

"A gem!"

A beautifully appointed apartment. Very well equipped and tastefully furnished throughout while still remaining a really comfortable place to stay.

Very handily placed for both shopping and dining out in bustling Inverness.

Hope to return again very soon!

"wonderful home from home"

We stayed here for 5 nights in January, the flat was clean, warm and homely with many stylish touches, and the kitchen was very well equipped. Very convenient for the city centre and good restaurants nearby - I highly recommend this apartment

From Inverness which is known as 'The Capital of the Highlands' you can visit many of the most remote parts of Scotland in a day. There is a wide selection of superb scenery to see, both coastal and mountainous, along with many Lochs and Castles.

The Black Isle, the Cairngorms, the coastline of the Moray Firth and the sandy beaches of Nairn and Findhorn to mention just a few.

Take a trip to the famous Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle which is only a short journey away. Maybe sail down the Caledonian Canal to Loch Ness or take a boat trip on the Moray Firth to dolphin watch. The scenic fishing village of Ullapool is less than an hour's drive from Inverness and the west coast has a wealth of hill walking and mountain climbing.

And of course there is an abundance of golf courses nearby including the famous courses at Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch.

The Scottish Highland's history, culture, warmth of its people, scenery and landscape is world renowned and well worth a visit. From Culloden Battlefield to the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. from Loch Ness to Ben Nevis, the choices of things to see and do really are endless.

Booking Notes:
Now that Online bookings and payments has been made mandatory I have had to unfortunately amend my booking process..

A 25% deposit is now required to secure your booking and the remaining 75% is due for payment 1 month prior to your arrival date, paid via the checkout and not directly to me.

If you would like to book via this website you will get the protection that they are offering for the service fee. This is good protection and also an easier way for my overseas guests to make payment.

However if you are a UK guest who have stayed with me before, and are happy to book and pay direct as before, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I can also be reached via my "Victorian Apartment - Heart of Inverness, Bonnie Scotland" facebook page by anyone who would like to contact me.

Changeover Day:
As before... During Peak period weeks our changeover day is a Saturday. This is flexible during quieter months.
Arrival time is 3pm and departure time is 10am.
