Booked a 4 day Scottish Highland trip through Scottish tours and got put up in this wonderful place with a smiling and helping owner couple. The gentleman from Orkhney and the lady from Glasgow bought this 1887 property, right near the city centre of Inverness(where you get unlimited shopping and dining opportunities) which is about 4 minutes walk down the...

Craignay has been our base in Inverness twice a year, at least, for about 9 years. If we can't stay here, we ask ourselves if we can change our schedule or just skip Inverness! We - and everyone else too - always receive a warm welcome. The rooms are comfortable, spotless with biscuits, tea, coffee in the room. There is... More

I stayed here a number of times while in Inverness with work. The service was always excellet, staff were very friendly. My room was always clean and the bed was ridiculously comfortable.

I came across this Guest House a few years ago. Since then it's been my preferred place to stay in Inverness. It's a 19th century town house which has beautiful rooms. Everything about the place is great. You get a warm welcome from the owners, who go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The... More

My five-night stay this summer was as close to perfect as one can get, and the reason I choose B&B's over impersonal hotels. The room was an adequate size for a single traveler, not too small; I appreciated the in-room sink, the comfy bed, the bathroom was convenient (and shared with only one other room) with roomy shower, all very...

My partner and i stayed here for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it! They were such friendly people. The rooms were clean and had everything you needed. We have stayed in other guest houses but this one was much more personalised! If we ever come back to scotland we will absolutely book this place again. Loved it!!
