Innes is first and foremost a private house and a family home situated in the North of Scotland. Zoë and I took over the reins from my parents, in 2016. As owners we are very proud of Innes House, not only as the custodians of its architectural beauty, but for the great feedback we receive from our guests about the relaxing atmosphere, beautiful food and our staff’s natural passion for hospitality within a historic surrounding.

Innes House is an architectural delight set in idyllic grounds that is perfect for weddings, corporate events, shooting parties or other bespoke adventures. Off the beaten track, the tree-lined drive takes you away from the road into mature parkland where your memorable experience begins. Switch off from the hustle and bustle and allow yourself to breathe in a timeless historic world.

The house sits just above the spectacular mountains of Cairngorm National Park, west of the historic Spey Valley with its famous malt distilleries and close to the golden beaches of Moray. It is ideally situated for wild nature walks through ancient pinewood forests and mountain treks up the highest peaks in the British Isles. It’s proximity to the Spey brings Scotland’s whisky history close to home and should you fancy a round of golf, the only problem will be which one of Moray’s many dramatic courses to choose.

Innes House is perfectly placed to explore this richly historic land or just stay at the house and enjoy a luxury retreat and take gentle walks through our parklands with plenty of rare and historic trees to discover. Whatever your reason for visiting, we will make your stay entirely enjoyable.


An exclusive, elegant and romantic setting set in the North East of Scotland – the perfect atmosphere for your wedding weekend!

Our History
