Areas of Natural Beauty

Get out in nature and enjoy our local national parks, nature reserves, parks and green spaces. With our hotel based in the bustling city, the beautiful Highlands of Scotland are on our doorstep. From majestic lochs to looming mountains, it’s there for you to explore.

A beautiful area of Scotland

The beautiful Highlands of Scotland have been the source of inspiration for books, movies, poems and countless other works of art for centuries. And it’s no wonder. This is one of the most breathtaking areas in the country. People visit from all over the world to experience the tranquility and striking scenery that this part of the UK has to offer. 

Of world-wide fame is Loch Ness, just a short drive away form the hotel. This is a loch like no other, because lurking deep inside may (or may not) be the Loch Ness Monster! Of course, even if you don’t catch a glimpse, this loch is spellbinding, especially when you consider that it holds more water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined. 

The Cairngorm National Park offers adventure in every river, valley and mountain top. It is here that Scotland’s wildest of animals can be glimpsed, like the wildcat and the golden eagle. From kayaking to hiking, there’s so many ways to enjoy the beauty of this area.

Closer to the city, there’s beauty to be found throughout Inverness. The Ness Islands offer a calm retreat from the busy city, right in the heart of the city! Set in the middle of the River Ness, these offer somewhere to sit and watch the world go by. Similarly, the Inverness Botanic Gardens create an oasis of flora prettiness to visit all year round. Discover some of the unique plant life that grows here in Scotland, as well as many varieties you wouldn’t expect to find this far north!
