On arrival we were warmly welcomed, after a little chat and a cuppa were shown to our room. Nice decor with excellent view of River Ness and its islands: which at night are lit by colourful lights. The Ghillies Lodge in Inverness is ideally situated for a stroll along the river bank or a short walk into the city. And... More

My husband and I decided to take some time in Scotland for our honeymoon and stayed at B&Bs along the way. This experience was lovely! Mary is extremely helpful with places to eat around town and attractions in the area. Our room was beautiful and extremely clean. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic (my husband and I found ourselves... More

A gorgeous house right on the banks of the River Ness. This is the first time my boyfriend and I have stayed at Ghillies Lodge and we wished we could have stayed longer! Mary, our host, is simply amazing and we could not have asked for more! The area was so peaceful, and the house was so clean and beautiful.... More

Beautiful house right in front of River Ness. Quiet, peaceful breathtaking views. Great room, big and comfortable, great deck right in front of the river. A bit far from city center, but the walk (about 10 mins) is in a path next to the river. Staff was as friendly as someone can be. First thing right when we arrieved, they... More

My friend and I only stayed two nights but wish it could have been longer. I noticed an award on the wall that said The Ghillies had won "Friendliest B&B" - and the owner, Mary, couldn't deserve this more! She was so kind and welcoming, and truly made us feel at home. We stayed in the twin room right in... More

Lovely B&B along the River Ness in Inverness. I stayed in the King bed room and it was beautiful and very spacious. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the view on the river was lovely. I enjoyed listening to the river as I fell asleep. Mary was so lovely and made delicious breakfast in the morning. I would stay here... More
