We stayed at Atherstone in July this year during our whistle-stop tour of Scotland. I would thoroughly recommend Atherstone to anyone looking for accommodation in Inverness if only because of its hosts Ally and Ruth. Atherstone's location is fantastic (in a quiet neighborhood five minutes across the river from the city centre and the train station) and our room lovely...

Hiya! Thank you for the lovely review- we really appreciate you taking the time to leave that. We are very fortunate with our location being so close to the centre of Inverness, but also in a nice quiet area. One of the best parts of doing this job is when we can make someones trip to the Highlands a bit...

I stayed here mid March when working at Raigmore Hospital. It is a short walk to the bus stop, with a stop within the hospital grounds at the other end. Buses run regularly and the journey is quick. It was lovely returning to the b and b after a day at the hospital and a very relaxing place to stay....

This is a really homely b&b. Our room was spotlessly clean with a powerful shower and hair dryer. The homemade caraway seed cake was most welcome. There was plenty of choice at breakfast - all freshly cooked and locally sourced. Ally and Ruth's home is very close to town and if we were to be in Inverness again we would...

It's the best stay during our trip to Scotland. The room is extremely comfortable and Ruth and Ally are very kind! There are plenty of books and DVDs to entertain and I chose the Finding Nemo. The location is also brilliant, within 5 minutes walk to the center of Inverness. I would certainly come again if I had chance. Btw,...

We have been to Inverness several times and always had a nice place to stay but this time we felt completely at home as never before.

Ally and Ruth of the Atherstone B&B made our family feel right at home in their 1892 house. The location was convenient to walking within Inverness, the house clean and comfortable, and their welcoming spirit really made our time enjoyable. You can tell they really enjoy what they do! There are cats in the house, but they don't come into...
