The Culloden House is located maybe 5-6 miles from Inverness just off the busy A96 road from Inverness to Aberdeen. As you approach the entrance gate you can see the grand hotel building standing at the end of a half-mile long courtyard. The building looks classic and historical at the same time. The Culloden House actually has two buildings with... More

The staff was very nice, but the hotel needs updating. It has a very neglected feeling everywhere except the garden, which was amazing. After climbing up to the reception we had to climb another 58 steps to get to our room. The furniture in our room looked and felt like it belonged in a museum rather than a hotel room.... More

House with great history, beautifully presented. Nice but a bit sniffy, old school management. I would stay again but sometimes it's easy to forget that outside of London time moves at a slower pace and there are certain etiquette rules. In London, minimal aesthetic high end designer dress worn with similar designer trainers totally acceptable as evening attire. Not so... More

From the moment you pass through the gate, the sound of gravel under the tires, the ivy growing up the front facade, I felt time slow down. There was a quietness to the place. Everything felt very personal, from check-in to the interaction with staff, there was a warmth and sincerity that I didn't expect. The suite 22A & B... More

This is a terrific hotel. It's very historic and looks from its website like it might be a bit "stuffy". It absolutely isn't - the staff could not be more friendly or helpful with blink of an eye efficiency. When we booked the hotel we asked if we could leave two large bike bags and store with the hotel for... More

Friendly staff and delicious breakfast and suppers. Comfy rooms. It's a very old property so has some of the quirks of such, but if you are looking for a lovely experience, this is your place. There is a main house and two connected side buildings. Nice little bar for drinks before dinner and a bagpiper on the lawn for a... More

Culloden house was fantastic. We were treated like royalty. Actually they told us that lots of royalty actually stay there. Rooms were huge and luxurious. Walled garden next to our room was cool. Food was good. Scotch selection was extensive. Would definitely recommend if you can afford it.
