I am a Scottish tour guide, so experience accomodation all over Scotland.This bed and breakfast is in a quiet residential part of Inverness, with parking, just a short pleasant stroll to restaurants and shops.

2 minutes from the center of Inverness, we stayed for 3 nights. Ruth and Ally are doing what they love and it feels, they are friendly just like their very nice rooms. Both discreet and considerate, you will appreciate their advice and breakfast. Possibility to ride a bike along the canal. Do not hesitate.

We booked from the US via email and were so glad we did! Even with so many B&Bs in the Inverness area, most of them had no vacancies the week we stayed with Ally and Ruth. Their place is actually just a brief walk from City Centre, shops, restaurants, and major routes in and out of town. We came by... More

We could tell a lot of thought had been put into this B&B. The homemade cookies in the rooms and jams at breakfast were delicious, and we loved the selection of books and DVDs. Although not the most modern home, there was much attention to detail (even the toilet paper was the best of any B&B we'd stayed at). Ally... More

Ally & Ruth hold the unofficial title of "Most welcoming B&B hosts in Scotland" and after you have stayed here you will understand why. The accomodation is warm, the bed extremely comfortable & the breakfast is the stuff of legend. The prices are very competetive and the little touches of home baking and home-made jam finish it all off nicely.... More

We stay at Atherstone for 2 nights at the end of august. The room was lovely, clean, comfortable and well appointed (dvd player, ipod dock) with lovely touches : fresh flowers and home made scones instead of the usual biscuits to go with kettle, tea and coffee.

Whilst motorcycle touring in Scotland I suffered the misfortune of a punctured rear tyre whilst travelling through the Great Glen.
