“AMAZING pet friendly accommodation in beautiful location”

This converted church is huge inside with 4 ensuite double bedrooms and lots of entertaining space all beautifully decorated with Rachel and Rob's quirky interior design. The accomodation attracted us more than the area but we loved the area too. A fabulous accomodation for a family holiday or a group of friends and plenty of room for a dog or two. Children would love the quirkiness and our grown up children certainly did. We loved all the little touches and felt very lucky to stay here. A lovely warm welcome from Rachel and Rob with a bottle of prosecco waiting in the fridge and lots of useful information and little extras that make a self catering accomodation an easy stay. Somehow Rachel and Rob managed to combine drama with cosiness and every little touch you could wish for. A great view too and close to harbour, walks and Chanonry point for a bit of dolphin spotting. It's an easy drive to see the region. We are seasoned self catering accomodation users and this rates top of the rentals where we have ever stayed. Thank you Rachel and Rob.

“Amazing property. WOW!!”

Had a fab time in the amazing property. Rob & Rachel made us all feel very welcome. 8 in the party ranging from 9-60 years old and every single person instantly fell in love with this charming building. Couldn't want for anything more. The Station Hotel down the road is lovely for a beer and a game of pool. Went to The Plough Inn a mile or so in Rosemarkie - the landlord collected us all from the property and dropped us back later on so we could all have a drink and watch the football!! Thanks again to Rob & Rachel for a fab long weekend! Quick question - can we move in on a more permanent basis??!!

The Tower House is set in a great location overlooking Avoch harbour and the converted church has been done to a high standard. Despite visiting during a cold spell, it was very comfortable and the feature upstairs sitting room with the log burner was a joy to be in. Great facilities and well equipped. Great for large parties with the number of WC/ showers available. The down stairs bedroom was perfect for my elderly mother as the spiral stairs can be challenging if often travelled however are a big part of the feel of the place. We were greeted by the owners and made to feel welcome, so many nooks and crannies to explore, all tastefully decorated and in sync with the house. A great information pack was provided and nice place to visit map in the library. We would love to come back again if we can and highly recommend.

“Incredible house in a great location”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We visited Avoch with a large group of friends and two dogs, and we were absolutely blown away by the accommodation at the Tower House.There's so much room, so even with seven adults we never felt in each other's pockets. Amazing first impression, being a very large converted church atop a hill with views over the harbour. Brilliantly equipped and very sociable kitchen-diner, comfortable bedrooms, two (very) large lounges and a smaller lounge/library room. Lots of info for local attractions, books, DVDs... everything you could need. Very friendly owners only too happy to share local knowledge. In fact, all the locals we met were really nice.

Only minor things to note would be that all of the bedrooms have windows looking out onto the rest of the house, which does mean people can see into your room from a variety of angles. It's no doubt to keep the rooms brights and airy. We all overcame this by hanging coats over the window-frames with coat-hangers, but some frosted glass would be nice.

The location is really good, being just a short drive from some other lovely villages along the coast, and several beaches. Not too far into Inverness either, and we all struck out to the Cairngorms and Loch Ness too - easy reach by car, and great fun for the dogs.

Would recommend this place to anyone, and would certainly return - there's lots more to explore in this stunning part of the world.

“One not to miss!”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

A large unique property, a credit to those who renovated this wonderful building. Decorated to merge traditional and modern with an exotic flair, the Tower House is one not to miss. Rachel & Rob have an eye for interior design which is reflected in each colourful room. Although Tower House sleeps 8 +, we booked for 2 adults and 2 well behaved dogs, everyone should experience time in a property like this with light flooding rooms and fantastic views to the sea. The surrounding villages and places to visit are bountiful, all within a short drive. The locals are very friendly and always welcome a chat. We enjoyed an afternoon drink in the Plough Inn and a quality curry at Gabi's after a long walk.
Thanks to Rachel & Rob for their hospitality, we'll see you again.

What a fantastic house in a fantastic location. Very handy for Inverness and access to North or South attractions The house is stunning in a lovely location, it is well looked after and has great character with lots of lovely details. The split levels to the house make it great to spread out in, the kids loved it! Amazing views and the harbour is very close great for dolphin watching. Great owners, Rob and Rachel who were very friendly and helpful, great communication will definitely be back.

“Best vacation house we ever had!”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

This house is just awesome if you want to stay near Inverness, Scotland, with quite a few people. We stayed with 2 families, each 2 adults 2 children, so 8 in total. The house has 2 bedrooms with 2 beds AND shower / toilet for each room! Additionally, there is a big kitchen with place enough for everyone (we even had one breakfast with 11 people, since friends came by, a library, a very large living room with a fireplace.

This place once was a church, you live in the half with the tower. Inside you just enjoy the vast space and huge windows, otherwise it is not church-like at all, quite modern and nice. From the outside it looks just astonishing. The view from the living room is on the sea.

The hosts were very friendly and waited for us at the house, showing everything and making sure everything is alright. Contact via email was very nice.

Downsides? Well, Wifi was not the best, but available. There is a huge spiral staircase... if you are afraid of heights you might feel uncomfortable, but I don't think it's an issue.
