Boath House

Last updated: 09 November, 2022

In the 1990s, this Grade-A listed Georgian mansion was on Historic Scotland’s endangered list. Then Don and Wendy Matheson lovingly restored what has been described as the most beautiful Regency house in Scotland.

Today, it’s an award-winning hotel, scattered with antiques and artworks – although the main focus has always been on providing three simple ingredients ‘a warm welcome, a comfortable room and a fine dinner.’ Talking of which, there’s a Michelin-starred restaurant too.

Surrounding area

The hotel is just off the busy A96 – the main route, bordered by fields and forest around here, between Inverness and Aberdeen. However, once up the drive, you’re surrounded by 20 acres of wooded grounds with an ornamental lake and walled gardens.

You’re not far from the Moray coast and the north-east’s wild beaches, and the little Scottish town of Nairn is just a mile and half away.
