Strathness House

Strathness House is a family-run guest house with all the facilities that you would expect from a small hotel. Situated fronting the River Ness in the heart of Inverness, the emphasis is on personal service with a homely, Highland touch. Services are personally centred around each guest. From small groups to the single business traveller, all are guaranteed a very warm Highland welcome. Strathness House was built in 1874 by Mr Matheson of the Merchant Shipping company Jardine & Matheson. Alexander Ross was commissioned to design and oversee the building of the house. Mr Ross was also the designer of St Andrew's Cathedral that stands next door to Strathness House. After a brief spell as the Tower Hotel, the name Strathness House was reinstated in October 2007 by its present owners Joan and Javed, who will be happy to tell you more about the history of Strathness House on your visit to Inverness. Many guestrooms offer river views, and all guestrooms provide free wi-fi internet.
