Welcome to Old Drynie House, offering the ideal accommodation choice for those looking for a B&B near Inverness, Scotland. Our aim is to offer you a fantastic experience when it comes to finding a luxury bed and breakfast on the Black Isle.

We are situated in a prime location. Our bed and breakfast in the Scottish Highlands is centrally located and within touching distance of a huge range of scenery, heritage, culture and outdoor activities.

The bed and breakfast can be found 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 original 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 25 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.

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, including the North Coast 500 road trip.

Stay with us in our beautiful and peaceful location near to the bustling city of Inverness and make day trips north or west to Skye, Applecross, Gairloch, Ullapool, Tain, Dornoch, Golspie, Torridon, Durness, and even Orkney. Travelling east you can find the great whisky distilleries on Speyside, while to the south lie the magnificent Cairngorm mountains and the ski resort of Aviemore.
