All 8 apartments are new, spacious, warm and well equipped in a carefully restored historic building in the heart of the ancient village. Each has one, two or three bedrooms, a large lounge with kitchenette, bathroom and verandah or patio to enjoy those wonderful views and sunsets across the inner Moray Firth to Inverness, the Black Isle, Chanonry Lighthouse, Great Glen (Loch Ness) and mountains beyond.

We're on the coastal path and have beach walks, woodland and open countryside around the village. Inverness, Nairn, Fort George, Loch Ness, Cawdor, Culloden, Clava Cairns are on our doorstep.

Great accommodation, great views, great value
Ardersier provides a great view down to the Kessock bridge and over to Chanory point where dolphins are often seen. Just along from the apartment is Fort George well worth a visit. Paul and Sally [the owners] are delightful and coudn't be more helpful. The apartment is spacious and spotlessly clean. A great place for a relaxing holiday, great views from the balcony in the apartment. A place and apartment you would return to and recommend.

Beautiful, peaceful, breathtaking bay views and friendly too!
The apartment was beautiful, spacious and with views over the Moray Firth from the living room and from the balcony. We got to Fort George, Culloden, Clava Cairns, Inverness and Nairn, all without a car! We were very lucky with the weather. Paul, our host, was tremendously friendly and helpful, not least by adjusting and lending the mountain bikes for a cycle through the nearby forest. Lovely, peaceful break.

Super Wohnung - Super Aussicht - Super Vermieter
Tolle Lage mit sehr schönen Panorama-Blick auf Meer, Berge und Stadt. Sehr gepflegte Anlage und auch das Apartment war Top. Paul und seine Frau waren sehr nett und immer hilfsbereit. Paul lies es sich nicht nehmen uns viel von der Umgebung zu erzählen und die Koffer hochzutragen. Die beiden tuen wirklich alles damit man einen schönen Urlaub hat.

Great place
We really enjoyed our stay. Paul was able to accommodate a last minute booking and provided fast and clear communication. The apartment (Apartment 9) was comfortable, very clean and convenient with a lovely view. If you are very tall, you may have a bit of trouble in the shower with a lower ceiling, but as we are both under 6ft we were fine. We were so happy that we stayed there rather than a hotel or directly in Inverness. Inverness is about 10 minutes away, Culloden was close by as well. We easily could have stayed longer and used the apartment as a base for exploring both major cities and the highlands. Thank you so much Paul and Sally!

gorgeous views
lovely converted property in a pretty village. Paul the owner very friendly, plenty of tips for getting the most out of your stay. Plenty of wildlife to see, we saw dolphins whilst we were there, plus masses of birdlife. Great for children and family if you enjoy beautiful walks, exploring on the beach or bike rides.

Absolutely fantastic..I can't praise this place enough!
Having rented many holiday aprtments over the years, I can genuinely say that this was the best! The design of the apartment was very clean and simple. It was the attention to detail that makes this place stand out. The kitchen was unusually very well-equipped. Everything was really well thought out. There was washing powder for the washer; ground coffee for the coffee maker; a pint of milk in the fridge when we arrived. Paul, his wife and staff were really friendly and helpful, There are toys, bikes, fishing nets, books and other holiday stuff available to borrow. The standards of cleanliness throughout were very high indeed. Everything was done to make our holiday very easy and enjoyable. The location in Ardesier was stunning. Literally ten steps to the beach. At low tide you can walk out about 150 meters. A great place for walking, or chilling, lots of rock-pooling and very safe for children. Ardersier was a quiet village with a couple of pubs and two general stores. Food, wine and most of what you will need can be bought in the village. We saw dolphins from Fort George 1.5 miles walk up the beach, but the best views were from the lighthouse at Channory Point, across the bay. Incidentally we found a couple of hours after low tide as the best time to see them. We looked up the tides online. We travelled by car and stayed for a week. We intend to come back again for long weekends, probably flying to Inverness airport and hiring a car. We loved our stay and would totally recommend it to anyone.
