The new luxury hotel opened this month on the banks of the River Ness offering a secluded escape in the heart of the city centre.

Originally a 19th century house, the historic Grade B listed building has been lovingly restored and transformed. It still retains many of its period features but has been given a contemporary twist, creating the perfect mix of old and new. Surrounded by a canopy of trees and foliage alongside the river, guest are immediately transported to an idyllic hideaway in the heart of the city.


Each of the hotel’s 47 rooms have been beautifully decorated to reflect the seasonal landscape of the highlands with a flow of soft colours and textiles. The rooms have been appropriately named to highlight the many trees surrounding the hotel including the Cedar and Laurel.


Each bedroom has been thoughtfully designed to enhance space and natural light. Impressive marble, crisp linens, luxurious leathers and warm velvets combine to make the perfect sanctuary to relax and unwind. And, keen to make the most of the natural surroundings, each ground floor room has patio doors leading out to its own private terrace, while floor to ceiling windows allow guests to soak up the views on the first and second floors. 




For an even more indulgent experience, Ness Walk also offers two outstanding suites. The exclusive Wellingtonia and Rowan suites encapsulate 5-star luxury, with the spacious rooms boasting sweeping views out to the grounds and Inverness Castle.


Stunning décor means guests can relax in style, with a private lounge and dining area, chic marble bathroom with walk-in shower and sumptuous super king size bed and luxury cashmere throws are just some of the features adding to the unforgettable experience. 




The hotel’s Torrish Restaurant is a fine dining experience with the best local ingredients curated to form comfort food with a modern twist. With relaxed, friendly surroundings, the menu offers guests dishes packed with curiosity, adventure and discovery.


Executive chef, Craig Douglas has explored the region to source the best ingredients including fresh hand dived scallops from the North West coast scallops, wild elderflower hand-picked by chefs in the Culloden woodland and baby beetroots, turnip and rocket, grown just a few miles away on the local farm.  




The hotel’s tranquil vibe is extended into the elegant lounge, stylish bar and private event space, The Riverbank Room.  With a south facing glass wall leading out into the courtyard and down to the river, Ness Walk is the perfect space for dining and special celebrations. 




Tony Story, CEO of The Kingsmills Group said: “We wanted to create a luxurious escape with Ness Walk, and that’s exactly what we’ve done. It’s a place where guests are instantly transported out of the hustle and bustle of the city and everyday life, and can relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings. Just 10 minutes from the iconic Loch Ness, the hotel is a gateway to the Highlands, allowing visitors to explore every hill, nook and crag of Scotland’s most spectacular landscape.

“Exceptional hospitality is at the heart of our offering, with every little detail taken care of. From valet parking and personal luggage delivery, to a glass of chilled champagne on arrival, it’s our promise to provide an outstanding 5-star experience from the moment our guests arrive.”




Ness Walk is perfectly located to allow visitors to see some of the Highland’s most coveted sights. Loch Ness is just a 10-minute drive away and the breath-taking Inverness Castle just a short walk. Three of the world’s most famous links courses, The Champion Golf Course at Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart and Nairn are all just a short drive away, making it a haven for golfers, and, for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, fishing, off road driving and horse riding are all within easy reach.
