Description

Located in the centre of Inverness, the Highland capital, a warm welcome awaits you at Viewhill Villa. This semi-detached property offers well-presented accommodation that has been furnished and equipped to a good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible, and is the perfect setting for family gatherings, special occasions or just a relaxing break. The location makes this the ideal base for exploring the many delights of this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. By using the North Coast 500, a 500 mile coastal route which uses the main roads across the coastal edges of the North Highlands you can discover stunning deserted beaches, historic castles and a diverse array of wildlife. Viewhill Villa is located in a quiet setting, yet just a few minutes walk will take you in to the heart of the city centre where you will find something for everyone, including a large range of shops, fine restaurants and bars, along with art galleries, museums and open topped bus tours to name but a few of the many amenities the city has to offer.

Take a cruise on nearby Loch Ness with Urquhart Castle on its shores, visit the Cairngorms National Park with Aviemore at it’s centre, or slightly further afield, take a day trip to the beautiful Isle of Skye or north to the Orkney Islands. The area is renowned for its large number of historical attractions, which include Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, and Cawdor and Brodie castles. Activities in the area include golf on some of Scotland’s most spectacular courses, such as Macdonald Spey Valley, Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart, with the Fairways Course and driving range just a very short drive away. Mountain biking, water sports, fishing, climbing and hill walking are also widely available.

The Moray Firth is the perfect place to see the world’s biggest bottlenose dolphins. Depending on the time of year, you might even be able to do some whale watching. Minke and killer whales both visit these waters, and there have been sightings of sperm whales and pilot whales also. The Scottish Dolphin Centre offers hourly guided tours and a very informative learning centre that children will love, and admission is free. For the less energetic, sit back, relax, unwind and enjoy this lovely property in a quiet setting. Beach 12 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

About the local area

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands lies at the north end of the Great Glen, where the River Ness flows into the Moray Firth. With its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings, it is a pretty place which is well-known for its floral displays.

The River Ness provides a key focus within the city, and attractions like the castle, Inverness Cathedral and the Eden Court Theatre can all be found on its banks; together with some of the city's many shops and restaurants.

Follow the River Ness for long enough and you will end up by the shores of the best known loch in Scotland - Loch Ness. Thanks to its famous resident - Nessie, the friendly Loch Ness monster it has become one of the most popular areas for tourists to visit. Explore the visitors centre by the shore and learn the history of this legend. You might even spot this illusive creature for yourself as you stroll the area.

To the East of Inverness is Nairn, rated second in a list of top desirable destinations for 2010! But its not surprising because with its long, sandy, Blue Flag beaches and promenades it competes with some of the popular tourist beaches in the south of England. Its unique micro-climate also helps to ensure that it has more hours of sunshine and less rainfall than towns just 15 miles away.

Off shore The Moray Firth is home to one of only two colonies of dolphins in the UK and they are often spotted from viewpoints along Nairn's shore. The seafront also hosts an active harbour, with boat owners offering trips to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins or simply to view Nairn from a different angle.

Areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Culbin Forest and Culbin Sands Nature Reserve can be observed inland. Enjoy spotting many species of flora and fauna, as well as birds and migratory flocks. And for those who enjoy the invigorating sea air, there are magnificent views across the Moray Firth.
