Welcome to the Ardross Glencairn, located just outside the city centre of Inverness – the capital of the Scottish Highlands.

The Rowan Guest House Group started in 2001 when the Rowan family took over the Glencairn guesthouse – a grade-B listed Victorian building in the heart of Inverness that has been tastefully extended over the years. In 2005, the Rowan family extended their business to include the Ardross guesthouse (also a grade-B listed Victorian building) situated next door. In 2014 the two buildings were joined together with a new extension to become one house, and the amalgamation of the two properties saw the birth of the Ardross Glencairn as it is today. In 2019, the Rowan family extended the business again to include the Whinpark guesthouse situated next door at number 17 Ardross Street. This property has been completely refurbished in every bedroom and en suite shower rooms to ensure it is of the same standard as our other properties. These properties are run by a small management team, including two generations of the Rowan family (with the third generation “helping out” now and then!). We also have a fantastic team of managers, reception, breakfast and room staff to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. We look forward to meeting you soon.
Ardross Glencairn is located in a quiet residential area, within five minutes walk of the town centre. Inverness is a city on Scotland’s northeast coast, where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth. It's the largest city and the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands. Its Old Town features 19th-century Inverness Cathedral, the mostly 18th-century Old High Church and an indoor Victorian Market. The contemporary Inverness Museum and Art Gallery traces local and Highland history.
