Margaret and Angus' place is a real home away from home. They're warm and friendly and so is their B&B. The bedrooms are well appointed and the beds are conducive to a good night's sleep. Margaret and Angus are helpful with their tips on places to go and how to get there. The breakfasts are excellent and they tailor them... More

Comfortable and friendly, Angus and Margaret are lovely hosts who make you welcome in a soft Scots way. The room was comfortable and quiet, breakfast was substantial, assistance was helpful and off street parking welcome. A short five minute walk into town makes this a handy location. Would stay again if in the area.

Staying in Ach Aluinn is just like staying at your grandma! The place is cosy and Margaret really makes you fell comfortable! Our room was over-looking the back yard and was very quiet. The room was fitted with twin beds, so we were a bit short of floor space. Though the beds were very comfortable. Coming from Scandinavia we find... More

The off-street parking was welcome since the street was a bit narrow with limited parking. Got off to a rocky start when my TV wasn't picking up a signal and the internet was working, and I had some trouble getting Angus to understand that we were connecting to the wireless fine but the internet connection wasn't working. Finally he tried... More

We stayed on night at this B&B. The room was quaint and clean and the MacDonalds very hospitable. The location is great, being close to downtown and with easy access to the major highways in and out of Inverness. We were fed very, very well at breakfast. This is a good place to stay.

Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald were lovely hosts. We stayed only the one night en route to catch the ferry to Orkney. Off-street parking was provided, the MacDonalds were present to greet us on arrival, and our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Angus brought us breakfast in the dining room in the morning, and gave us some an idea and... More

I spent 4 days with Angus and Margaret at Ach Aluinn in January 2013, on the sad occasion of my mother's demise. With apology for the delay in recording my review, I have to say I could not have been in better hands. As hosts they were perfection, and in those few short days they moved from 'hosts' to 'friends'.... More

The owners are so sweet. And the rooms are lovely. We didn't stay very long, but the owners were very accommodating and let us check in quite late (after 11 pm). We then had to check out at 430am to catch our flight back to London. They were there to greet us and show us our rooms when we got... More

I stayed for a night with 4 of my friends and we loved it! Angus the owner is really friendly and is the most meticulous host I've met so far in my travels when it comes to making sure we had a good night's stay, plus his jokes are classic. His wife Margaret whips up a mean breakfast as well.... More
