    Road Directions

    From Perth A9: On entering Inverness continue on the A9 towards the Kessock bridge following the signs for Fort William (A82). On reaching the roundabout before Kessock Bridge stay in the left lane and take the 1st exit left. Staying in the left lane at all times follow the signs for Fort William, which will take you through 4 roundabouts. Between the third and 4th you cross over the River Ness. On exiting the 4th roundabout take the first left which takes you back towards the river. At the end of the road turn right (river will be on your left hand side) and go all the way to the end of the road making sure you are in the right hand lane at the end as you need to go straight ahead after the traffic lights. Through the traffic lights we are 100 yards on the right hand side directly opposite the castle. We have a car park entrance on the right just after the main entrance at the front of the Hotel.

    From Aberdeen A96: You will arrive at the roundabout, which you will leave at the 3rd exit left. This will take you up onto the A9 and approach again the Kessock Bridge. Follow the directions as if coming from Perth.   From Fort William A82: Follow the A82 into Inverness until you come to the river. Make sure you are in the right lane before you come to the first set of traffic lights. At the set of traffic lights before the river you will take the right hand turn into Ness Walk. The river will then be on your left. We are the second Hotel on the right and the car park entrance is on the right just passed the main hotel building.   From Wick or Thurso A9: Going over the Kessock Bridge make sure you are in the middle or right hand lane. You want to take the 3rd exit left and then follow the instructions as if coming from Perth.   Car and Parking: We have limited car parking space at the side of the hotel. If on arrival you find that there are no spaces, please double park your car in the valet space and leave your keys with us at reception or at the leisure club reception. Our Valet parkers will take your car to our second car park at the Cathedral a couple of minutes walk away. They will also get it back for you if you just tell them when you would like it back. Alternatively if you would prefer to park your own vehicle please get a ticket from the leisure club reception which entitles you to free parking in the Palace hotel marked bays.
