About this listing
Our tasteful and comfortable apartment for two has everything you need on foot in the city centre - retail, culture, restaurants and entertainment within minutes and yet in a quiet traffic free location. Enjoy easy access to beautiful scenery, river walks and theatre and return to a relaxing, modernised apartment.
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 but not really suitable for toddlers or young children. We do however provide a travel cot for a baby.
With easy access to the stunning Highlands of Scotland and yet Cafe's Restaurant's and Shops a minutes 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 minute walk. Multiple excursions and car hire is available with on street permit parking provided on arrival.
The apartment is a a very short 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 to 10 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.
Access to the apartment and all amenities are solely for the use of our guests and includes, double bedroom, bathroom and compact but well equipped kitchen opening onto the living/dining area.

Alison and John were great hosts. John did a great job explaining everything to us on arrival. The apartment was terrific for our stay in Inverness.....lovely and clean and centrally located. It proved to be a great base for our exploration of the region which included visiting the Battle of Culloden site, cruising on Loch Ness and catching up with distant relatives. Thank you

Alison and John were very welcoming and made special arrangements for us, due to our late arrival time. the flat was great for a couple and extremely close to the high road.
John & Alison gave us very detailed information on shops, restaurants & the area before our trip, which was very useful as the day we arrived was a bank holiday in Scotland & we were able to book a restaurant before we left for Scotland. John was at the apartment to greet us & run through things with us. The apartment was very clean, tidy & well equipped. It was just as we had expected. The area was quiet, tucked away but very central for everything. We had a fantastic holiday & we would recommend Alison & John's apartment to anyone who is looking for accommodation in Inverness.
Lovely Flat! Close to everything and easy to find! John and Alison were very accommodating, letting us in early. We really enjoyed our visit!
We loved staying at Brae apartment. The location is perfect for being close to everything yet peaceful. The apartment is lovely with plenty of space and modern attractive furnishings. The shower is fabulous- an actual walk-in shower- with no climbing over ancient bathtubs like most places we stayed. Kitchen is well stocked. Alison supplied lots of good recommendations for places to eat and shop, all of which was very helpful. This is a wonderful place to stay in Inverness!
My stay at Brae Apartment was a lovely experience. The apartment had everything I needed and was exactly as advertised. The location is terrific for someone wanting to be near all the tourist facilities. But it was positioned just off the high street so it was remarkably quiet. John made me feel quite welcome and provided helpful information. I'd go back in a second. Just a note to anyone with mobility issues, the climb up from the high street is a little steep so entering Stephens Brae from the shopping mall or the street behind is flatter.
