Ardconnel House entrance Ardconnel House is an attractive Victorian terraced building offering 4-star quality Bed and Breakfast accommodation in 6 guest bedrooms.

Situated in a quiet residential area of central Inverness, it is just a few minutes walk from the castle, museum, railway, shops and river.

Having been in the B&B business for several years, our priority has always been 'customer care'.

A warm friendly welcome to all our guests is assured, whether in Inverness for business or pleasure.

Photo of Inverness From Ardconnel House take a stroll down Castle Street or the steps which both lead directly into the High Street. You are now in the heart of the shopping centre, yards from the railway and bus station, and close to many pubs and restaurants.
Follow the road to the edge of the magnificent River Ness. You can then wander on past the lovely Ness Islands or simply stop and stare at the fast rushing water coming down from Loch Ness. Cross over one of the picturesque little bridges and you can visit the Cathedral, Bught Park and Eden Court Theatre and Cinema. Photo of Inverness Cathedral

After an enjoyable meal and a quiet drink in one of Inverness's many excellent watering-holes, stop and admire the floodlit castle and the river on the way back home to your cosy bedroom at Ardconnel House.

What to see and do

The bustling Highland capital, Inverness, plays host to many events throughout the year including music festivals, concerts, piping, Highland Games, etc.

Dolphins can be seen in various locations (from the shore or from boat trips) - see dolphin photos taken by one of our guests.

Nearby Loch Ness is a popular tourist attraction centred on daily boat trips and the ruins of Urquhart Castle. If you want more than Nessie hunting, then either take the road along the eastern shoreline which is much less travelled or head into the beautiful Glen Affric to the west of Drumnadrochit.

Head further west and you can visit picturesque Eilean Donan Castle, Kyle of Lochalsh, Plockton and the Isle of Skye.
Guests without a car can either enjoy a ride on the scenic railway line to Kyle or take a minibus day tour to Skye from Inverness.
Or what about a hiking tour around Loch Ness with WOW Scotland?

Castle lovers are spoilt for choice - legendary Cawdor, fairytale Brodie Castle and splendid Ballindalloch are just a few of those you can visit easily on day trips from Inverness.

And if it's distilleries you seek, then there are certainly plenty of those to choose from! Tomatin lies just to the south, Glen Ord to the north and there's also the whole of the Speyside Whisky Trail to explore.

Culloden Battlefield and the Clava Cairns are another must-see close to Inverness. Fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books will be familiar with these historic places which have been incorporated into her novels. You can get some ideas about the area and tips on travelling around Scotland from the blog written by The Romantic Traveller who stayed with us during her trip.
