About you

My name is Gregor and grew up in the area before moving to Edinburgh and beyond for study and work. I returned to the area in 2010 after tiring of city life. I normally work in health and safety or lifting operations but have previously worked in finance, education among others.

Why this property

I love this house because I have transformed it over the last couple of years, which has been a lot of work but also a labour of love. I love its country feel, its country style kitchen looking out onto the mature garden, the living room with its wood burner for relaxing in front of the fire whilst watching movies or simply enjoying a good book and glass of wine. I may be biased and undoubtedly it has been decorated to my tastes, but it has been decorated with comfort in mind, from the sofa, to the beds, to the fire, to the views from the kitchen window to the garden. Even the walk into town is beautiful along the River Ness over the bridge past the Cathedral to the town centre all in under 5 mins.

I love the garden and the birds which are attracted into it.

You can also access the main arterial road routes from here and be outside Inverness on route into the Highlands in under 5 mins. The banks of Loch Ness can be reached in 10 mins by car, the Spa town of Strathpeffer in 20 mins or some of the UK's best golf courses in 30 mins. Some of the Championship courses designed by Tom Morris and James Braid include Royal Dornoch, Brora, Tain, Castle Stuart, Nairn, Nairn Dunbar and Moray - not a bad collection of courses within easy reach for the golfer.

Similarly many of the famous tourist attractions are within easy drive with the Caledonian Canal a mere 5 minute walk away as are most bars and restaurants.

Great little place close to downtown, restaurants and river

  • 4 of 5

Place was clean and well stocked, owner was very responsive and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and make sure we had everything. Fresh flowers and some minimum groceries were there for us which after a long day’s journey was appreciated. Downstairs areas were excellent, upstairs areas were adequate. Upstairs Half Bath provided minimum facilities but was adequate (I.e. no mirror etc). Would definately stay here again!

Lovely house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, everything we needed. Gregor was a great host and made us feel very welcome when we arrived. It’s a nice looking cottages from the outside, and once inside, The bedrooms were all good size and the whole house was well equipped and nicely furnished. The garden was also lovely to have and sit out in. It’s really conveniently located, an easy stroll into the city centre, but also easy to find from the main roads in and out. We had a great weekend.

Great location - congenial host!

  • 5 of 5

The property fit our needs well. With three bedrooms and one and a half baths, it is a great place for a family or group of friends.

The location is terrific. It is about a half a block from the Ness river and less than a half mile to the city center. There is one good restaurant/pub within a block and an Aldi grocery store less than a quarter of a mile away.

Gregor is a caring host who works hard to ensure the guests' experience is comfortable. He was even kind enough to take my daughter and I to the West coast when we all had a day off. I appreciate very much his kindness to us in ensuring we had a terrific stay.

Everything you need in a central location.

  • 5 of 5

Went us 3 adults. One couple and a friend to go walking. Cottage has everything you need and more. Very central location. Gregor is very friendly and easy to communicate with. The fridge was stocked with essentials which we hadn’t realised he would do. It was very comfortable to relax in the cottage in the evening after a long day out or just be able to walk a short distance to a variety of eating places. Would book again without hesitation.

Lovely cottage, within a 15 minute walk to the beautiful centre of Inverness.

  • 5 of 5

Gregor was a wonderful host. All the essentials were provided. He gave us some very helpful tips on places to visit. We really enjoyed the cozy fire in the evening. The beautiful landscaped backyard is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine. It is a short walk to shopping and some great pubs.
