On the tree-lined banks of the River Ness, this hotel is ideally placed to explore the surrounding area. Glenmoriston has built up an enviable reputation over the years but has not rested on well-earned laurels, instead pushing itself to provide the best service possible. The brasserie prides itself on the freshest of ingredients and is well placed for those visiting the nearby Eden Court Theatre. The signature whisky bar not only has over 260 different malts to tempt you, but also 30 different gins, and is renowned for its cocktails.

With parts of the principally Georgian mansion dating back to the 16th century, Culloden House is living history. Bonnie Prince Charlie himself lived here, and even stayed on the two nights before the battle that was to end his fight for the crown. Although this is probably enough to draw the history — or Outlander — fan to Culloden House, the hotel itself offers so much more. With an award-winning restaurant, 28 tastefully decorated rooms, in-room massage service, a sauna deep in the dungeons and a beautiful walled garden, a stay here will be truly memorable.

    A 17th-century mansion, Bunchrew House is an excellent location for those seeking peace and tranquility, while only two miles (3km) from Inverness itself. The hotel is set on 20 acres (8ha) of beautiful grounds and woodlands along on the picturesque Beauly Firth shore, so is ideal for spotting wildlife, including dolphins. With a restaurant, cocktail lounge and drawing room, Bunchrew allows guests to relax amid luxurious comfort. Each room is different, and the whole country house can be hired for special events, such as weddings.

The bar is one of the best cocktail destinations in the north of Scotland, and the legendary Albert Roux restaurant serves fresh and local Scottish ingredients with a French twist. There are options available for corporate guests and also for unforgettable weddings.
