We are in a prime location. Despite being just 10 minutes from the city, we are based in the middle of twenty acres of wonderful Victorian planted parkland with fantastic sea views, it is an ideal location to stay and explore the Highlands of Scotland.

Here on the wonderful Black Isle with the dolphins leaping we are ideally placed for day runs all over the Highlands being no more than two to three hours from any location. Stay with us in our beautiful and peaceful location near to the bustling city of Inverness and make day trips west to Skye, Applecross, Gairloch or Ullapool, north to Tain and Dornoch, Golspie or Orkney, east to the great whisky distilleries on Speyside, or south to the magnificent Cairngorms.

Our bed and breakfast in the Scottish Highlands is central to the huge range of scenery, heritage, culture and outdoor activities the place has to offer.

The house is at the end of a long lime tree-lined downhill drive. It was built in a traditional style in 1993, on the site of a ruined mansion house. The stone portico of that house still stands at the front.

The house itself has an imposing but simple charm. Old Drynie House is a delightfully furnished and decorated house built less than 20 years ago to a high standard. The house is situated in the middle of 20 acres of beautiful parkland consisting of gardens, three paddocks and a mature beechwood. Outside, one paddock serves as a golf driving range. We have a full sized snooker table with other games available.

This bed and breakfast in Inverness, Scotland is positioned overlooking the sea less than a five-minute drive away from the dual carriageway, which is the main tourist route from the South and East, and giving easy access to the stunning beauty of the North and West of Scotland. The immediate policies of the house extend to around 20 acres. This consists of three grassland paddocks each with a central copse of mature specimen trees such as oak, beech, cedar, fir and lime. There is a magnificent traditional mature beech wood behind the third paddock containing a red kite nest along with other wildlife.

Views from all the paddocks are over or through a ring of mature specimen trees, which surround each paddock to the inner Moray Firth beyond.

The garden around the house extends to about one acre and contains more mature specimen trees, such as two magnificent Cedars of Lebanon, wellingtonias, monkey puzzles, an evergreen oak, and many fine firs among too many other species to mention. Views from the front of the house are over the inner part of the Moray Firth.
