What People Say

Testimonials

Loved it!

Malcom and Maggie are simply outstanding hosts. They took a personal interest in our visit and provided fantastic options as we chatted most pleasantly. We actually changed a day trip based on Malcom’s advice and it was wonderful. Turned out to be much better than we had hoped.
The rooms are clean and incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was the best we had on our Scottish excursion — Thank you Maggie!
The Inn is located just a 5 min walk to great restaurants, shopping and and downtown Inverness. Most highly recommend this exceptional B&B. It is now our GOTO accommodation on all future trips in their locale. Loved it!

Perfect place to stay

Perfect place to stay. This little B&B is located only a few minutes away from the City Centre and the beautiful River Ness. The owners let us check in earlier and showed us everything. It was quite sunny and warm the day of our arrival and we were definitely not prepared for that weather, so they helped us out with some sunscreen. What a kind service. They also recommended a great restaurant and whisky bar, where we went that evening.
We enjoyed our stay and can certainly recommend Maggie’s and Malcom’s cosy B&B.

Stay here!

Stay here! We had the best time at the Pitfaranne House. We were treated like family and loved every minute. Great food, great location, super helpful, and amazing accommodations. Our stay was perfect and we highly recommend a stay here.

Absolutely Lovely

The four of us had an absolutely lovely time at the Pitfaranne House!
The owners Maggie and Malcolm are kind and informative about Inverness and must-do activities, and their small inn is sparkling clean, and very charming. The breakfasts prepared by Maggie were bountiful and delicious.
I highly recommend this small slice of heaven in Inverness!

Just a brilliant, cracking place to stay

Malcolm and Maggie could not have been more accommodating hosts. They were truly interested in our daily excursions and offered up many helpful suggestions (the commando’s monument in route to Oban was outstanding). If you are looking for dour Scots none will be found here – just two joyful enthusiastic people.
Comfortable, quiet rooms located an easy walk to town and shopping and a fairly simple process to drive out of town to other attractions.

Perfect location to stay while in Inverness

My wife and I came to Inverness for the second part of our Scotland trip. We were able to book the apartment at Pitfaranne for our stay. The location really can’t be beat. It was an easy walk from the train station. Pitfaranne is close to restaurants and shops as well. All within walking distance.

Once we arrived we were warmly greeted by the proprietors, Malcolm and Maggie. They gave us a quick tour of the apartment and we were set. Our stay included breakfast each morning also. It would be wise to take advantage of that! It was fantastic and a great start to the day. A huge plus to the apartment is there is a washing machine. We used that immediately once we got settled. We had been in country for a week by this point. No clothes dryer however. There is a drying rack and Maggie offered the use of a clothesline if needed.

While cozy, we were not cramped. A very comfortable living room. A kitchen (we didn’t use) and two beds upstairs. One queen and one twin. The shower is a bit on the small side. If you’re a bigger guy like me, it’s a tight fit. That wouldn’t stop us from staying here again though.

When our stay was done, Malcolm drove us to our next stop. That was perfect. Two hour car trip or eight on a bus? No brainer. Plus he took us on a more scenic route showing us parts of the country we hadn’t seen.

As I said, great location. Absolutely wonderful people running the place. Excellent breakfast cooked to order. Affordable. Would definitely stay here again!

Donna

Highly recommended

Margaret and Malcolm are great hosts and really looked after us during our stay. Room was spotless, really comfy bed and lovely cooked breakfast in the morning. 5 mins walk from the centre of town, great access to the highlands, Loch Ness and a number of golf courses. Highly recommended.

A home away from home

A home away from home, Maggie and Malcom the owners are amazing! They make you feel right at home and give you very useful information. The guest house is very close to local shops and local transport, it’s centrally located and it’s very quiet. ||There is a personal touch to this place, it’s definitely worth a visit!

Tan

We will be back again

We had a fantastic time at Pitfaranne on our trip to Inverness. Maggie and Malcolm were fantastic hosts and recommended places in the area to go see, as well as places to eat & drink. The guest house is in a great location and close to the centre. The breakfast was absolutely delicious.
We will be back again 🙂

Amazing B&B experience with delightful hosts!

Maggie and Malcom were delightful hosts! They were very responsive to questions I had prior to arrival. Our room was clean and adequately furnished with what we needed during our stay in Inverness. They promptly brought us a fan when I was concerned about getting too hot (which I never did). The breakfast was delicious. We loved the location for walking to downtown businesses. They kindly arranged a taxi for our morning of departure, which was much appreciated. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer than 2 nights and not getting to visit with Maggie & Malcom more. We are hoping to be repeat visitors to Inverness and to Pitfaranne Guest House!
