Host review score

Lynda and Roddy
Friars Bridge Guesthouse is a modern detached house in a central location. Fully refurbished prior to re opening under new ownership in July 2021 it features three individually designed Boutique Style En Suite guestrooms as well as a mature garden with outdoor seating.
We have worked in tourism for many years and are very passionate about our beautiful country. We are both very friendly outgoing people that love to entertain, so why not open our home for others to enjoy our hospitality. As well as hosting accommodation we also operate Loch Ness Tours in our luxury minibuses.
Within a short walk to the City Centre and many attractions including the River Ness, the Caledonian Canal, Merkinch Nature Reserve, Inverness Castle, Botanic Gardens, Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and the many beautiful walks from our doorstep.
