On our whirl wind tour of Scotland we stayed here and enjoyed it tremendously. Joyce was a great host and was very accommodating. We had a front room overlooking the river Ness. We walked to everything it was so close, food & entertainment all right there.

My husband and I recently stayed here during our brilliant stay in Inverness. It's right on the banks of the River Ness and only a short walk into the city - so very convenient. Joyce is a fantastic host and runs a beautiful B&B with great views of the very picturesque River Ness. We paid a few extra pounds a... More

This was our third stay at the Macrae Guest House, the place we were lucky enough to find in 2012 and re-book in 2013 when we were running the Loch Ness Marathon. We booked again for this year but despite being injured and not being able to run we kept our booking as we didn't want to miss visiting Inverness... More

This B & B is located right across from the Ness River on a quaint little street. The Ness River Park is just down the road and the restuarants and shops are in close proximity as well. We loved walking along the river each evening and there were plenty of jogging and biking trails as well. You can walk on... More

We stayed here in August 2014. It is beautifully located on the banks of the Ness and the house is wonderfully furnished. Joyce is clearly a woman with a fascinating hinterland and she has made the house (it was originally her parents') utterly lovely on the inside, with dark olive greens, rich browns and golds, and a sweeping banister. The... More

We recently returned from 3 weeks of touring Scotland, and find that our stay at Macrae Guest House was one of the highlights. The location is fantastic, with the beautiful River Ness out front and dozens of restaurants within walking distance. Joyce is a jewel and was terrific at pointing us towards the best food and nightly entertainment in Inverness... More

A lovely guest house. As I am travelling by myself abroad for the first time, I had some anxiety about the places I might be staying during my trip. Once I saw the property, though, my fears were immediately relieved. The guest house is in a wonderful location - a nice, quiet spot right across from the river and very... More

Charming and quiet B&B by the Ness. Good breakfast (toast, cheese, homemade jam, etc.) Joyce has been a very nice and kind hostess taking time to give us some tips for our visit of the city. If I ever have to go back to Inverness I will surely book at this place.

Even though it is not Joyce's fault Inverness chose our travel dates to tear up all the roads, that had a big impact on our stay at the Macrae Guest House. After 3 phone calls to Joyce and driving past the place 2 times without knowing it, we found the "market and car park" because she sent her son out... More

Really spacious family room for 3 overlooking the river (small ensuite as a result), beautifully clean and daily servicing! Joyce is a font of all knowledge Inverness and... More
