Rooms with a view in Inverness

Guest house overlooking castle on the market

• Craigside Lodge is said to offer views of Inverness Castle and the River Ness.

A GUEST House overlooking Inverness Castle has come onto the market, offering prospective buyers the chance to pick up a ‘live-in’ accommodation business.

Craigside Lodge operates with five en suite letting rooms across three floors as well as separate owner’s accommodation.

It’s so close to Inverness city centre that it is a magnet for visitors.

Public areas at Craigside Lodge include a lounge, which is said to offer views across Inverness including both the castle and the River Ness.
The property also has gardens to the front and rear, as well as off-street car parking.
Selling agent Strutt & Parker said the property has retained a number of traditional features, including raised skirtings, cornicing, alcoves, picture rails and ceiling roses.
“Craigside Lodge is an attractive period property successfully trading as a guest house in a wonderful elevated position with stunning views over the city of Inverness and beyond,” said the agent in a statement.
Kevin Maley of Strutt & Parker’s Inverness office described it as a “great little business”.
“The current owners have upgraded the property resulting in a good trade and reputation,” said Maley.
“It’s so close to Inverness city centre that it is a magnet for visitors to the UK’s most northerly city, which attracts tourists and business people all year round.”
