Host Information

Host review score

If you are looking for somewhere a little out of the ordinary to stay, then take a look at the quirky Tangle Tower. The building - once known as 'The Watchtower' during the Victorian era - has been used as both an observation tower during the War and a Coastguard station, where boats were launched right out of what is now the kitchen straight into the sea. Located in South Kessock, on the shore of the Moray Firth at Inverness, the property has been lovingly renovated to a high standard with careful consideration being taken to preserve some of the original features. The names of those who have worked here in the past have been painted on to the walls in the stairway so that they can be remembered forevermore in this building that is rich with history. The kitchen, downstairs bedroom and upstairs lounge area have beautiful large windows that allow you to take in the astonishing views of the Moray Firth and the Kessock Bridge. The lounge can be transformed into a bedroom with the sofa bed if you require a property that sleeps six in total.
With a strong interest in arts, various creative industries and historical buildings Tangle Tower became our first renovation project. Taking 2 years this building was transformed from a dark, rundown property, to a proud, updated high spec property with amazing panoramic views across the Moray Firth.
The beach side along North Kessock is an up and coming area with a strong working class background. Wildlife is in an abundance with Merkinch Local Nature Reserve just a short stroll from the property. Inverness city centre is within walking distance, where you will find plenty of restaurants, shops and leisure facilities to keep you entertained. There are also great links via train and bus, why not use Tangle Tower as a base to begin your Scottish Highland adventure! The community is friendly and welcoming, and they love to pass the time of day with you.
