Overview of Cottage Accommodation Dunvegan-inverness, 3 Culduthel Road, Inverness, Highlands
4 stars VisitScotland
There is a very well-equipped, modern kitchen in Dunvegan-Inverness, so when you want to enjoy making food in a convivial atmosphere, the choice is open to you. Have dinner in the spacious, airy dining room, relax afterwards in the comfort of the lounge, or curl up with a good book in the study.
The kitchen features an island hob unit, a combination microwave oven as well as a standard convection oven, a fridge and a dishwasher. There’s a freezer in the utility room, adjacent to the study. The kitchen’s also a sociable area with occasional seating, so preparing a meal can be a shared pleasure!
We are happy to provide a basic ‘welcome pack’ when you arrive - - some morning rolls, milk, eggs, bacon, margarine, marmalade, tea and coffee. If you or one of your party have special dietary requirements, please let us know at the time of booking and we shall do our best to accommodate your needs.
The lounge and study both have TV sets with Freeview and DVD players. There are plenty of board games, jigsaws and books in the study. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished reading that novel - - take it home with you! All we ask is that you buy another from one of the charity shops in town and leave it here to replenish our stock.
The dining room is ideal for lively conversation over a relaxed, informal dinner - - as well as for studying the map and planning your next day’s outing. See the Out and About page on our website - - www.dunvegan-inverness.co.uk - - for inspiration and ideas if you haven’t been in this area before, or take a look at the various ochures for local tourist attractions. With the ochures, there is a notebook. Please write down your impressions of places you have been and things you have done - - both positive and negative - - so that others can benefit from your experiences and find the best outings, visitor attractions, restaurants, bars and cafes.
Adjacent to the study, the utility area will take your coats and boots - - and it also has a freezer, a washer-dryer and ironing facilities. There is a compact WC below the stairs.
Upstairs has the best views! Look out the front windows over the river towards St Andrew’s Cathedral and the Eden Court Theatre towards Tomnahurich, Craig Phadrig and Craig Dunain; to your left, below you the River Ness tumbles down from the Great Glen and Loch Ness; to your right you have an excellent view of Inverness Castle, down the River Ness with its charming Victorian suspension idge, across to the Black Isle and to Ben Wyvis beyond.
The master bedroom suite comprises a generous bedroom with king-size double bed and en-suite dressing room and bathroom. Perhaps the best view of Inverness Castle is from the dressing room!
There is a large double bedroom and a large twin bedroom, both of which share an ample bathroom. Downstairs, there is a double sofa bed in the study.
Bath towels, bathmats and hand towels are provided. Cots, high chairs and door barriers are available on request. Tea towels and basic cleaning materials are available in the kitchen.
The Area: 3 Culduthel Road, Inverness, Highlands
Inverness city centre is compact; so you're only 5 minutes' walk away from its High Street shops or Eastgate Shopping Centre or a wide variety of welcoming cafes, busy pubs and cosmopolitan restaurants. You won't need to take your car! If you're looking for things to do locally, the Tourist Information Office is very close by - - on Bridge Street.
Alternatively, you can walk down the hill to the riverside, turn left and head along the bank to the Ness Islands - - a haven of tranquility where you won't know you're so close to the city! Continue over the Victorian cast-iron suspension idges (known locally as 'shoogly' idges because they sway gently in use) and return along the north bank.
Inverness is at the hub of the transport network which connects the HIghlands with the rest of the UK. This makes it both readily-accessible and a great base for touring. To the South and West is the mountainous heart of the Highlands, dominated by Ben Nevis and gashed by the Great Glen and its three inland lochs, the largest and most famous of which is Loch Ness. To the East is a sheltered coastal strip bordering the Moray Firth, famous worldwide as the home of Speyside malt whisky. To the North lies the Black Isle, the Cromarty Firth and Easter Ross. Inverness has its own airport at Dalcross, about 10 miles east of the city and there are rail and bus stations adjacent to one another in the centre of the city. By road, the A9 connects Inverness to Perth, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow in the south, and to Dingwall, Lairg, Wick and Thurso in the North; the A96 connects Inverness to Nairn, Elgin and Aberdeen in the East; and the A82 connects Inverness to Loch Ness, Fort William, Oban and Skye to the West.
