All have river views and are just minutes away from the city of Inverness.
Your Ness Castle Lodges experience can be augmented with personalised beauty treatments with their specially appointed therapist.

From facials and Swedish massage to relaxation techniques, eyelash tinting and more treatments like Hopi Ear Candles, a spa session - or two! More information on what’s on offer is available on arrival.
Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Loch Ness cruises and dolphin spotting on the Moray Firth are among the myriad of delights within easy reach.

    What a place!!! With its location on the edge of River ness this cottage came packed with luxury and comfort as standard. There is nothing bad about this cottage or the grounds it is set in. If you are dog owners then this is the place for you. On site there are dog kennels which can be used if you fancy a day out or pop out to a local restaurant. I can not recomend this place enough................we will be back in the future that is for sure.

    Our only concern regarding Red Squirrel it was very dark inside and it was necessary to use the lights more than usual and really further lighting would have been an advantage. We have stayed on this site for many years at the other properties on the estate. We have stayed at Benula Lodge and now Red Squirrel. The views and walks along the river are both private and relaxing. Benula Lodge is amazing as the views are uninhibited and everything is first class. Red Squirrel is on a much smaller scale but the same views are there but a little obscured by the trees which didn't in anyway spoil our enjoyment of the holiday. The amenities are only a very short drive away i.e. Tesco stores and smaller establishments that a holidaymaker may need. Beautiful place to stay and would indeed go back as all the properties are first class and help is at hand very quickly should this be necessary.

    Red Squirrel Cottage, is located in lovely grounds, well maintained. It is top quality accommodation, with everything you could want. It offers walks along the river, not too far into Inverness. The cottage is beautiful inside, with a good outside area to sit and enjoy the surroundings.
