to The Boath House a luxury Scottish hotel in Nairn,
near Inverness with a reputation for quality, style and fine cuisine voted
AA Scottish Hotel of the Year 2010.
Once described as the most beautiful Regency House in Scotland.
It was on Historic Scotland’s ‘endangered list’,
in the early 90s, when
2007 marked their 10th year anniversary.
The property is set in 20 acres including well tended lawns, walled gardens,
woodland and streams.
An ornamental lake in the grounds is stocked with brown and rainbow trout
and is also home to swans, wild geese and ducks.
The Boath House Accommodation
There are only eight bedrooms but each one is a work of art.
Boath House was originally built as a family home and we have
tried as far as possible to retain the original features of the house.
The traditional “dressing room” which was attached to each
bedroom on the upper floor have been converted to en suite bathrooms,
otherwise the rooms have retained their original character.
Country House Hotel in Scotland
Room No 3 bathroom has an extra door which seems to go
nowhere, in fact there was originally a discreet passage to room
No 1 on the other side of the house.
Room No 5 has three steps down from the vestibule, apparently
because it was the Nursery and Governess’s room. The ladies toilet
on the ground floor has only one step down as this was the Butler’s
pantry, and he was plainly much more important.
All the rooms are completely different in size and décor, with
the two Orangerie rooms being of a more contemporary
design The cottage consists of a lounge, king sized bedroom, bathroom,
shower and toilet room and is some 30 meters from the main house.
