Our tasteful and comfortable apartment for two has everything you need, within minutes of the city centre and yet very quiet. Enjoy easy access to beautiful scenery, river walks, restaurants and theatre and return to a relaxing, modernised apartment.

The Space

The apartment is in Inverness city centre on a recently upgraded traffic free street, called Stephens Brae with parking for guests. (Please note; the (website hidden) Earth satellite street view is not our street).

With large south facing, sunny, double windows, the apartment enjoys a view across the city centre roof tops and church spires to the hills beyond. This cosy and very comfortable apartment has been recently renovated to a high standard and provides everything you need. The accommodation is situated on the first floor in a traditional scottish 'tenement' building and is accessed via a secure communal entrance.

This is the perfect base for 2 people, with easy access to the stunning Highlands of Scotland and yet Cafe's Restaurant's and Shop's a minuets walk away, this unique location is a great place to stay and explore Inverness and the Highlands, with bus and train links only a 5 minuet walk. Multiple excursions and car hire are available with on street permit parking provided on arrival.

The apartment is a minute's walk away from many restaurants, cafes and shops including Marks and Spencers Food Hall and in the other direction, a great Deli.

The River Ness is a 5 minute walk away, and is lovely for an evening stroll or to catch a movie or show at Eden Court Theatre and Cinema.
A number of venues offer contemporary and traditional music throughout the week with special concerts organised during the summer months.

Guest Access

Access to the apartment and all amenities are solely for the use of our guests and includes, double bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living/dining area.

Interaction with Guests

We will meet our guests on arrival to provide keys and information about the flat. We live about 1 mile away so we are on hand if required.

The Neighborhood

We love that the neighourhood is so quiet and yet so close to the everything the city centre has to offer and with easy access to beautiful scenery too!

Getting around

Free parking is provided with use of a permit outside the property. There is easy access to bus/trains/excursions and car hire nearby.

  • Brae Apartment, Inverness, Scotland was a superb place to stay. An excellent, well appointed apartment only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. Highly recommended.

  • We had a lovely time in Inverness! Owners provided great communication before arrival, provided great directions to apartment, and greeted us warmly upon arrival. We felt comfortable knowing they were only minutes away. The Brae Apt is in a great location. Very close to many shops, restaurants, bus station and train station but nestled around a corner so that you do not hear all the noise from busy streets. The apartment was very clean and well furnished. The wifi worked without any problems and we were pleasantly surprised at the many tv channels. All kitchen items were in good working order and provided all we needed. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The only problem that we found with the apartment was that the clothes dryer did not work. Also, the downstairs foyer was rather unpleasant in appearance and smell, but that did not carryover into the actual apartment in anyway. Neighbors were nice and rarely seen or heard. Overall a wonderful experience in Brae Apartment in Inverness. We would choose this location and rental again!

  • The apartment couldn't be more central! Ideally located on a quiet street (brae) just 2 mins from the city centre with shops, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep.

    Inverness is a perfect location from which to explore the many sights that the area has to offer.

    The apartment is perfect for two people, is well equipped and has everything you could need to make your stay comfortable. John met us on arrival and was very helpful, kindly providing us with a parking permit for our stay (spaces are right outside).

    The apartment is excellent value and we would highly recommend it.

  • Our train arrived early and the host was able to let us in early. The flat was well furnished and clean. It was a great location just a short distance from the train station and plenty of places to eat and drink. They had a great information packet with restaurants they recommend, tour group information, and directions to nearby places. The directions provided to the unit were clear and easy to follow.

    Thank you for your comments and positive feedback, delighted that you found the information pack helpful. We have taken note about the towels and thought a hand towel and bath towel each would be sufficient but happy to consider providing more. Thanks again John

  • Clean and comfortable. Very conveniently located close to city, shops and restaurants. As we had a hire car the parking right outside was very convenient. John sorted our check-in quickly and provided plenty of local advice. We would be happy to stay here again.

  • The apartment is great! Parking just out front, short walk (literally a few steps) to shops, near pubs, restaurants etc. We cooked breakfast & dinner here, did laundry & chilled out on the comfy couch watching tv after big days of driving in scotland

    May 2014
  • The flat was spotless, attractively decorated and well-furnished. Nothing amiss. Our hosts took time to send us information and to meet us on arrival. We had a most enjoyable visit. Thank you : )
