Abertarff House

The oldest house in Inverness and important example of 16th-century domestic architecture

Planning your visit

There’s no parking at Abertarff House but the Rose Street car park is 5 minutes’ walk away.

Street parking is limited.

Please be aware there are steps in and out of the building, and that the front door is located inside a turnpike stair and so is narrow.

Dogs are welcome in the garden but not inside the house.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.
