The exceptional welcome begins at our gated entrance.

Condé Nast Johansens capture the essence of the hotel: “Five-star service, smart interiors, award-winning food and a warm Highland welcome are all guaranteed”

“Ness Walk’s stunning grounds are home to the trees that inspired the guest room and suites’ names. Each one is spacious and utterly lavish. Many have views of the courtyard or river and beyond.”


In our restaurant Torrish, the dining experience offers one of the most exquisite and romantic settings in the city. Guests can enjoy artisan cocktails by the firepits in the courtyard before dinner and the restaurant’s experienced sommelier will offer personal recommendations from the extensive wine collection. Each dish on the menu celebrates the finest seasonal ingredients from local artisan producers, farmers and growers with provenance front and centre.

Tony Story, CEO says “We are absolutely thrilled and delighted to receive this most magnificent award that recognises the uniqueness of Ness Walk, nestling on the banks of the River Ness, in the heart of the wonderfully romantic Scottish Highlands. Ness Walk absolutely lends itself to romance”
