igh­land A art­ments, n er­ness Re­viewed by Mr & Mrs L Barnes from Bath­gate

Scottish Field - - SELF-CATERING BREAKS -

After a ca­reer in­volv­ing busi­ness stays in ho­tels, re­tire­ment of­fers re­lax­ation in one’s own space at one’s own pace. High­land Apart­ments by Mans­ley’s ser­viced apart­ments on the banks of the River Ness more than ful­filled our ex­pec­ta­tions.

The in­struc­tions, which we re­ceived in ad­vance, en­sured an easy check in. The fourth floor su­pe­rior apart­ment was eas­ily reached by lift from the pri­vate base­ment car park. On en­ter­ing, we were struck by the bright, spa­cious lounge with a view of In­ver­ness Cas­tle. The lux­ury choco­lates were a real treat. The kitchen equip­ment would eas­ily al­low the cook­ing of a meal, but, since the apart­ment is right in the heart of the city, many fine restau­rants are only a short walk away.

The mod­ern ac­com­mo­da­tion com­prises an open plan lounge, diner and kitchen, spa­cious en­try hall with toi­let and one bed­room with king size bed and en­suite shower room. The qual­ity fur­nish­ings and art­works com­ple­ment the style of the apart­ment.

How nice to en­joy break­fast, in­clud­ing crois­sants, in the sun­shine with­out hav­ing to dress and ap­pear in a ho­tel din­ing room. In sum­mer, we might have opted to eat on the bal­cony but it was just a lit­tle too cold.

A short drive took us to the Cale­do­nian Canal for a walk. Loch Ness, Cul­lo­den, bike hire, boat trips, and whisky dis­til­leries are all within easy reach. All in all this was a mem­o­rable, re­lax­ing break in the High­land cap­i­tal. Prices from £115 per night
