An old church dating back to 1843 now houses a quaint bed and breakfast in the small village of Urquhart, Scotland. The gallery of the church has been replaced by a spacious lounge and dining room under the original church ceiling. Travelers can make use of two public lounges, one complete with a wood-burning stove to keep you snug in the colder months. If you’d like, guests can request by prior arrangement a set three-course evening dinner. The church now holds a liquor license, so you may also enjoy a glass of wine, a bit of whiskey, or a beer.
The Old Church of Urquhart sits on its own grassy knoll in the middle of wide-open farmland surrounded by forests, nearby the Grampian Highlands, and the white sandy beaches of the Moray Firth. Guests can choose to relax on the two acres of garden grounds, enjoy a moment of stillness at the church pond, or stroll along the church walk. This spot also remains a popular wedding destination as well and offers both civil and religious ceremonies.
