Interaction with Guests
We live in the house and we will be here to welcome you. We are happy to interact as much or as little as you wish. We have sat for hours with some guests chatting away to the wee small hours but we also understand that some guests prefer privacy and we respect this also.
Our house is accessible from the road (B9006) to Culloden Battlefield and the street backs on to adjacent farm land. There are stunning views to the North across the city, the Kessock Bridge and the mountains beyond.
There is good access to public transport with a regular bus service to Inverness city centre which has an extensive choice of restaurants and shops. The bus stop is a 3/4 minute walk from our house. There is a large convenience store and food takeaway / chip shop nearby and a large supermarket 3 miles away, en route to the city centre. Culloden Moor Inn and Restaurant, the Battlefield and the Visitor Centre are less than 5 mins away by car.
Other Things to Note
We have a small lovable Shi Tzu dog and a Birman cat. They do not have access to guest bedrooms.
If you have specific questions, please feel to ask at any time.
None, other than to please treat our house as you would treat your own.
Margaret and her husband Callum would have to be without a doubt, the very best people I have ever stayed with.
Margaret is warm and inviting and openly notes that she his happy to help her guests with an any issues that may have whether it be the washing of laundry, fixing breakfast, offering local highlights to check if both in terms of history and culinary adventures.
Parking is freely available and each from is cleaned to a very high level of care. I honestly came to the accommodation from the Park Plaza in London and Margaret's accommodation was with out a doubt clearly superior.
The house intensely is ten minutes from central Inverness and boasts an utterly fantastic view of the bay. Absolutely perfect accommodation if you are looking for a place in Invervess.
Both Margaret and Calum are lovely hosts and we enjoyed our time there very much! The accommodation is beautiful and spacious, and Margaret provides a wonderful full breakfast each morning. Their location is very good for exploring Inverness and the Highlands.
We had a lovely two nights with Margaret and Calum. The room and house are spotless, bright and spacious. The sitting room upstairs was a great place to relax, read, plan our days, visit with another guest and enjoy the view. The location was easy enough. We got around by bus and taxi and walked back from the Culloden Battlefield (along a busy road, but not too far). Margaret and Calum were warm, helpful and generous hosts. We very much appreciated breakfast and laundry. This home was a perfect base for our visit to Inverness.
Five star experience. Great room, wonderful host, exceptional breakfast
Margaret and her husband Calum are amazing hosts. They were so kind and take care us well. We really enjoyed their beautiful house and at the end didn't even want to leave. House location is also good just a few minutes far by car.
Margaret and her husband Callum are simply the loveliest people. We stayed in there beautiful home, with spectular views for 8 days. When our gps failed to work they were kind enough to lend me theirs. Callum even helped me when we had a flat tire on our first day there. The breakfast, just wow, were delicious and Margaret was always around to offer us a cup of tea whenever we had returned from our travels or a day out shopping. I brought my mother and her best friend along and they simply fell in love with Margaret, and her dog, from day one. It seemed that Margaret was a mind reader as she always premptively met any need we could have. Callum was a wonderful and highly intelligent man, so is Margaret by the way, and I truly enjoyed being able to talk to both of them about sports, history, Scotland, or what ever else I could think of. The beds were so comfortable that it was hard to even want to leave in the morning. I also want to say that Margaret had a few family members over, and they were wonderful as well. Everyone made you feel like you had somehow been long time friends who hadn't seen one another for some time. If Margaret and Callum ever make their way over to Pennsylvania they will alwayd have an open invitation to stay with us. I personally will only ever want to stay with them when I travel back to Scotland, as I don't think any other hotel or bed and breakfast could live up to the spectacular standards they have set.
I had a wonderful time staying with Margaret and Callum. Their home is comfortable, warm and a true haven from the Scottish weather. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

About the Host, Margaret
I am Margaret and I am renting out a few rooms I have available in my property in Inverness, Scotland. We have named our house Fasgadh, which is Gaelic for haven or shelter (my husband Calum and I are both native Gaelic speakers) and we strive to provide a safe and comfortable haven for all of our guests.
We look forward to welcoming you to Fasgadh!
