Perle Hotels has purchased Lochardil House Hotel in Inverness for an undisclosed sum.
Perle already owns the Marmalade and Bosville Hotels on the Isle of Skye, and the Perle Oban Hotel in Argyll & Bute.
Lochardil House, which has 28 bedrooms, is regarded as one of the finest hotels in the Highlands and is located in Inverness just six miles from Loch Ness.
Set in its own spectacular gardens, the hotel is regarded as one of the best locations to relax in the area.
Some 12 of the bedrooms are located in the grandeur of the original Victorian hotel building, with 16 bedrooms located in the adjacent Garden Wing.
Inverness is an ideal base to explore other attractions, such as Urquhart Castle, Culloden Battlefield, The Great Glen and Lochaber.
Lochardil House is just a 20-minute drive from the convenient Inverness Airport.
Beth Rehman, brand director for Perle Hotels, commented: “Perle Hotels continues to invest in its hotel offering of affordable luxury in the Highlands region.
“We offer the highest quality of service and food and drink offerings in some of the Highlands most stunning locations.”
