The Swallow Columba sits on the banks of the River Ness overlooking Inverness Castle. The hotel is situated in the city centre of Inverness, widely known as the ‘capital of the Highlands’. The relaxed atmosphere is in keeping with its location, where modern comfort and style blend seamlessly with the traditional Victorian features retained throughout the property.

Each of the en-suite bedrooms has television, wireless internet, tea and coffee making facilities, iron, 24 hr room service and a 24 hr porter provided. Many of the rooms also include views overlooking the River Ness and Inverness Castle.

The hotel’s carvery restaurant serves a fantastic selection of freshly prepared food, as does John Macnab’s bar and bistro where a wide choice of over 100 malt whiskies can be enjoyed.

There is much to see and do in the area such as visiting Urquhart and Cawdor Castles, Fort George, Cairngorm National Park and the legendary Loch Ness. Our friendly staff is always on hand to help with booking any attractions and to ensure that your Scottish break is truly unforgettable.


There is a dedicated suite of meeting and conference rooms on the first floor of the hotel. The location of these rooms in the oldest part of the building (dating back to 1881), means that you get all the advantages of high ceilings and large windows – plenty of fresh air and natural light – together with pleasing views of Inverness Castle and the River Ness. To this traditional comfort we’ve added the modern benefits of air conditioning, the latest conference and meeting technologies and wireless (WiFi) broadband internet access. So you get the best of both worlds.
