Ivybank is very attractive "B" listed house - full of original features and charm and ideally situated within walking distance of Inverness city centre, castle, river, restaurants, shops and theatre, offering a chance to relax in the gracious surroundings of a by-gone age. With its oak panelling and beamed hall and its gothic carvings, its magnificent mahogany staircase, and its original fireplaces in the downstairs rooms, it is truly unique!

The lounge has a Baby Grand piano if you are musically inclined, and the dining room can also be used as a sitting room, thus offering guests both a quiet lounge and a study/games room. The extra public space there and in the hall makes it an appealing house for groups to spread out when they need to.

The landscaped garden is walled and enclosed and has adequate parking within and security lighting. It also has a pond, and care must be taken with young children.

The bedrooms are exceptionally well equipped with all three ensuite and having flat TV screens, hairdryers, and clock radios. One bedroom has a 4-poster bed and overlooks the garden. The family bedroom, too, overlooks the garden, has a double and single bed and has a bath and shower in the bathroom central to the tower. The remaining bedroom on offer has its original curved door and its bathroom is in the top of the tower and up a staircase within this room! There is also an additional, large bathroom which is fully tiled with a large corner bath & walk-in shower.

Dubbed by the French, "Le Petit Chateau", Ivybank is without rival, and is simply enchanting!

From here you can explore the Highlands, Loch Ness and Skye by day, and a minutes' walk takes you into the busy city centre with its many restaurants and bars. The best of both worlds!

The Scottish Highlands region

Ideally situated within walking distance of Inverness city centre, castle, river, restaurants, shops and theatre.

Invernes's stunning landscape, being one of the most beautiful in Scotland, is just waiting to be explored, and the City itself is attractively set on the banks of the River Ness having an enviable location at the head of the Great Glen and on the shores of the Moray Firth

This is one of the last great wildernesses in Europe............ through the soaring beauty of Glencoe to the idyllic charm of the isles, and from the waves of the northern coastline to the silence of the windswept moors.

Inverness City Centre

THINGS TO DO...... Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, the castles of Dunrobin, Skibo, Eilean Donan (wedding venues for the rich and famous) Loch Ness and fabled "Monster", Whisky Trail and Distilleries,, Bottlenose Dolphin Cruises, Castles and Cairns, Walks and Waterfalls, Cruises and Tours, Golf Resorts, Fishing, Hillwalking, Watersports, Wintersports, Theatre, Museum, Art Galleries, Historical Sites, Pringle Woollen Mill, Castles galore! - National Trust for Scotland Brodie Castle, Cawdor Castle, Stuart Castle, Urquhart Castle all being within the vicinity - and Dunrobin Castle and Skibo Castle a short distance from the City! Hollywood material indeed! Jacobite Loch Ness cruises and tours sailing throughout the year
