Heronwood House is a detached Victorian stone built house enjoying stunning views from its vantage point overlooking the River Ness. It is presented uniquely and artistically to a high standard throughout, incorporating many unusual and charming period features. A superb feature of the house is a large Victorian balcony that looks down on the famous river Ness that flows through the grounds below. Arranged over two floors, this spacious self-catering house can accommodate up to 5 guests with ease. The main lounge is a delightful room, with its own access to the large balcony with outdoor dining furniture; an ideal spot to sit and enjoy a drink whilst listening to the river below. The kitchen / dining room is bright and spacious, with integral units and plenty of room for dining. There is a single bedroom with en suite shower room on the ground floor, again with access to the balcony. On the first floor there are two stunningly beautiful double bedrooms (one en suite), both with zip and link 6’ beds, as well as a family bathroom. It is ideally placed, just one mile from Inverness city centre and within close proximity of numerous tourist attractions
