House Tour - Look Inside
House Tour & Guest Facilities
Jessie Mac's was built around 1864 and was the 'manse' or home for the minister of St Mary's Church next door. Many of the original features are still intact, with a turret, ornate cornices and rich old oak banisters. The whole house was refurbished in 2012, sympathetically décorated to provide a calm, warm atmosphere.
Our BedRooms - View our floor plan
We have seven bedrooms in total, all ensuite and most are named after Scottish glens. Allhave full bed linen, TV, kettle, hairdryer and toiletries provided. Private rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and pets are welcome by arrangement. All of our rooms can be hired privately. Take the tour:
Private Double Rooms
These come with a TV, tea/coffee making facilities, towels and firm, comfortable double beds.
Lyon - a spacious ground floor double room with wheel chair access onto the street and ensuite facilities. Click on images below to zoom in on Lyon.
Almond - a cosy, quiet second floor double room at the rear of the house, with ensuite facilities.
Isla - a cosy, quiet second floor double room at the rear of the house, with ensuite facilities
Almond and Isla Private Double Rooms
We have two family rooms, sleeping four and five, with a mixture of double beds, single beds and bunk beds. Save yourself the hassle of bringing a travel cot by reserving our cot when you book.
Shee - sleeps 4 - one double bed, one set of sturdy bunks, ensuite facilities (psst! As well as having a shower, the ensuite has the only bath in the house.)
Schiehallion - sleeps 5 - one double bed, one single and one set of sturdy bunks. Ensuite shower room.
Dormitory Rooms - for private hire only at present
We have two shared bunk rooms. The bunks have been specially sourced to sleep even big hairy mountaineers - they're extra sturdy, extra long, with good over head space and even comfortable ladders. Good storage is a must, so rooms have lockers that can be secured with a padlock if you need to leave valuables behind when you're out exploring. Padlocks can be supplied for a returnable deposit or just bring your own.
Clova – sleeps 4 - two sets of sturdy bunks with lockers, plenty of power points and ensuite shower/WC facilities
Prosen - sleeps 2 - one set of sturdy bunks often booked as a single complete with a new ensuite shower/WC room.
Close the shutters, cosy up to the fire with a dram, curl up in the turret with a book or choose from the selection of games and books.
Not just for dining, it's the perfect spot for laying out maps, games, or just catching up on the craic. We’ve taken out some of the tables to ensure that everybody has plenty of space. We’ve also popped a small dining table into the lounge.
You’ve now got 2 separate, well stocked kitchens. The large one has 2 double ovens and 2 hobs, 3 fridges, a double sink, 2 toasters, tonnes of pots pans and a hot water urn. The smaller one has an oven, hob, triple fridge, a full size freezer,kettle, toaster, double sink, lots of pots and pans and other equipment. Both have microwaves, freshly laundered dish cloths, drying cloths, cleaning agents and general cooking equipment.
To help keep you safe, we allocate you to a kitchen which you may share with one or two other rooms - we’ll ask you to work together to give each other plenty of space and maybe agree times. You’ll have generous separate fridge space, your own dedicated storage cupboards with separate supply of crockery, cutlery, glasses, tea and coffee pots.
We try really hard to ensure that you have everything that you need to cook well. If you can’t find it, just ask (it’s probably hiding).
It's Scotland so you're probably going to get wet but we'll do our best to dry you out. We've got a drying room with plenty of room for hanging gear, complete with heating, a dehumidifier and a lock.
We get a steady stream of cyclists so we've got a sturdy shed with an even sturdier lock. We also have a large track pump, bike spray lubricant plus an outside tap and hose so you can wash your mountain / road bike down.
If you’re on the road working or on a study break, you might need that extra bit of peace and quiet. We’ve got a lovely wee room tucked away up in the rafters that you can book for an extra £5 per day.
