I am 72 years of age and after a varied career in Legal / Banking and among other things, owning and running a Photography and Design Studio, Upholstery Factory and Catering Establishments I am now using all my life experiences running The Annex Apartments in Nairn. Most of my guests come from abroad and in the last year I have played host to people from USA, Canada, Singapore, Finland, Germany, France, Spain, Australia and Slovakia. I treat my guests as I would like to be treated myself. I like to think of my guests as my friends and go that extra mile to make them welcome and make their stay with me memorable. I am a native Scot born in Aberdeen and have travelled to most parts of the country. I use my local knowledge to prepare and plan itinerary's and routes for my guests so they get the maximum benefit of the spectacular scenery that Scotland has to offer and judging from the reviews I get, I think the guests appreciate this. I also get a lot of satisfaction knowing that I have made my guests happy.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Owner chose Nairn
The Annex at Nairn is ideally situated as a base to explore The Scottish Highlands. Enjoy "The Outlander Experience" as Culloden Battlefield, Clava Cairns and Cawdor Castle are all a 10 minute drive away. Within a 40 minute drive is Loch Ness, Aviemore and the ski resorts, Speyside and The Distillery Trail, The Grampian Mountains and National Park. Glencoe, Fort William, The Isle of Skye are all a day trip away, as are all the main places of interest on "The North Coast Route 500" which is Scotlands equivalent of "Route 66" I have explored and prepared detailed routes of all the best places to visit within one days drive of Nairn, which saves you the trouble and effort.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Annex at Nairn can be anything you want it to be. If you want peace and quiet and a place to relax, it is that. If you want it to be a base to reach out and explore the surrounding countryside, it is that. Most of my guests tend to do both. After a couple of days driving the highland roads for 8 hours, they are glad to just relax and chill out sitting on the deck and enjoying the peace and quiet of the garden, or walking along the beach. The Beaches at Nairn are one of Scotlands secret treasures. Most people are taken aback when they first see them. This is one of the reasons that Charlie Chaplin used to visit Nairn regularly on holiday. We also have another famous resident, Tilda Swinton, the Hollywood actress lives here with her family. If you still feel energetic we have bicycles which guests can use.

Wonderfully comfortable flat
Very comfortable, well appointed flat, perfect for a family of four. However, our host Leslie is who makes this place extra special. From providing groceries for a first breakfast to his knowledge about tourist attractions, he can not be beat. Highly recommend it. THANK YOU VERY MUCH LESLIE!
Thank you for your kind words. I do my best to make my guests feel at home and it is nice to know that my efforts are appreciated. I hate to think that someone has traveled half way round the world and missed out on our beautiful scenery because no one has passed on the knowledge.
Best stay we had in Scotland
The Annex is a very tastefully decorated apartment. Leslie is a very friendly and helpful landlord. The fridge was already filled with food that was sufficient for five days. Nairn is a beautiful seaside resort in Scotland and a perfect base for exploring the Highlands or exploring the many great golf courses in the area.
Our friend Leslie
This property is not only so perfect to stay in
and feel at home, but,much more than this, it
belongs to a person-Leslie-who makes guests
feel that they have a new friend in Annex-Nairn.
Thank you Demitris I enjoyed having you and Maria stay with me. I try to make my place somewhere my guests can completely relax and feel at home, and one can never have too many friends.
A very comfortable home from home
I so enjoyed my stay at The Annexe in Nairn. It is warm, spacious and well equipped, the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom modern and appealling.
Thanks to Leslie for all the help and advice too.
Thank you. You are welcome back anytime it was a pleasure having you to stay at my place.
Warm and cosy, excellent host
Stayed in annex 2 for 3 nights over christmas whilst visiting family. This place is fabulous, a real home from home. Les is a great host, he even picked us up and is taking us back to the airport today. Would we stay here again, YES, yes and yes again. X
The Annex Apartments are located in a quiet road close to the centre of Nairn town within easy walking distance of the shops, museum, two Golf Courses and the beautiful Beaches with miles of white sand and views across The Moray Firth to the Black Isle. Favourite activities are Dolphin Spotting and "Nessie" Spotting as Nairn is only a 40min drive from Loch Ness. If using Sat Nav to locate our property the address is 6 Manse Road, Nairn, IV12 4RN which is accessed directly from the A96 and we are the third property on the left you will see the sign for The Annex.
