Ardross Terrace, Inverness

Several small hotels and guest houses are situated in Ardross Terrace, Inverness, opposite Inverness Cathedral, on the banks of the River Ness. Both Ardross Terrace and the Cathedral were designed by the same architect, Dr Alexander Ross. The guest house right on the corner was built as Strathness House in 1873 by Mr Matheson of the merchant shipping company Jardine & Matheson. During World War II it was requisitioned by the Ministry of Defence. In 1957 it was renamed the Tower Hotel but since 2007 has reverted to the original name of Strathness House.
