Bunchrew House Hotel is a 17th-century Scottish mansion steeped in history and offering excellent hotel accommodation and award-winning cuisine. While situated just three miles from Inverness city centre, Bunchrew feels like a world apart – sitting within 20 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland down on the shores of the Beauly Firth. Guests can wander the gardens and grounds or relax by the fires in the comfortable drawing room or cocktail lounge. The garden has lovely rolling lawns surrounded by mature shrubs and magnificent trees, and great pride is taken in the 250-year-old Cedar of Lebanon, locally known as The Loving Tree.
Guestrooms at Bunchrew House are individually decorated and each boasts a unique character and sense of style. Rather than numbers, rooms are named after local places and Scottish clans associated with the House. In each room, guests will be surrounded by opulence and history with all the modern amenities one would expect from a luxury country house hotel. Small touches such as fresh milk being left in your fridge daily add to the homely atmosphere. Some rooms have four-poster beds, some feature stunning views over the water, while others have charming aspects of the gardens and the Loving Tree.

Inverness is the true capital of the Highlands, and with 50,000 people, it is one of Scotland’s fastest growing cities. It is also one of the Highland’s oldest settlements. All roads still lead to the Highland’s center, Inverness. It feels like a compact town, but it has the bustle and air of a lovely city. Let your imagination run wild, and take a ghost tour led by an 18th century ghost, complete with period costume. Expect to hear tales of the city’s blood-chilling past, including ghosts, witches, murders, and spells! Stroll along the River Ness, or cruise on the Moray Firth, searching out bottlenose dolphins. It is very peaceful, especially if you’ve just been ghost-hunting… The River Ness flows through Inverness, and salmon fishermen come during the summer, even where the river runs right through the city’s center. High above the city is Inverness Castle, a unique Victorian built of red sandstone. Just below the castle is the museum and Art Gallery which runs exhibitions and workshops for kids. The main shopping area fans out from there in three directions, and includes a lively gathering place where pipers and other musicians get together and make music.
