My wife and I spent an absolutely wonderful week at the Acorn House in September, 2014. We were in Inverness for the World Masters Highland games. The owners, Dugie and Fiona are warm and delightful, we felt like family in the first 10 minutes. The house is cozy with very clean, spacious bedrooms and en suite baths. We had full... More

The Acorn was the first B&B we stayed on this trip to Scotland and set the standard. A really nice home with rich décor and comfortable rooms and beds. Glad we stayed 2 nights to enjoy it fully! The lounge was a nice place to sit and relax. The breakfasts were "full", had to ask to Duggie to ease back... More

Such a warm and welcoming house! Dugie and Fiona (and Jimmy) were the perfect hosts! Loved the conversations, hearty breakfasts, and accommodations! Due to many travels throughout Scotland, we were welcomed WAY past our initial check-in and WAY TO EARLY departure times! I HIGHLY recommend staying with Dugie and Fiona!

Nicely appointed B&B a short walk from downtown. It was a great place to stop over on our trip through Scotland. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, and the hosts very pleasant. It does have off street parking.

We chose Acorn guest House for it's location. It was a good choice as the walk into city center was only 5-10 min. We felt completely safe at night walking back in the dark. The house is very nice and comfortable with secure onsite parking.....a big plus! Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Would recommend a stay here.

Clean, warm and cosy. Helpful owners who gave directions and assisted with early breakfast as we had a ferry to catch. Dog's allowed, good central location. I would recommend the parking is secure and there is a nice garden.

This was our last stop along the GGW. From the moment we walked up to the house we were drawn in by the almost gingerbread house character of the place. Once you step inside, it is like being in doily and knick-knack heaven. Wow. The rooms each have a character of their own. Ours had a canopy bed and some... More

The Acorn Guest House was one of our favorites overall among several B&Bs that we visited in Scotland. Dugie and Fiona were wonderful hosts; Dugie is great although a little full of himself and Fiona is not as vocal although it appears that she really runs the place and him in the long run :) .
