Corunna Guest House is a most attractive Victorian property dating from c1885. This property should be considered as a must-view option for anyone wishing to own a prestigious property and a thriving business in the Inverness area. The property is presented in outstanding condition throughout and offers a mix of accommodation; 5 letting bedrooms and a self-contained 2-bedroom cottage. All letting accommodation is presented to an exceptional standard which is reflected in the on-line reviews.
