About Us


The former hotel building was most likely built as a direct consequence of the eye catching Fort George.  Its strategic position close to the narrowest sea crossing across the Moray Firth played a large part in its development from the mid-18th century.  While it functioned primarily as a fishing village, the Jacobite Rising had an impact on its history.  It's suggested that the Alma  was constructed as a look-out post for the roads leading to Fort George, which was the ultimate defence against further Jacobite unrest.
Since that period there is photos that show a painted sign above the windows indicating the Alma was once a shop for groceries.

To Date

The Alma in Ardersier was purchased in the Summer months of 2016 and has since been renovated to a very high standard of finish.  The work was carried out by a dedicated father and a team of great tradesmen.  The work was completed in the Spring of 2017 and is ready for visitors to enjoy a modern version of the 18th century historic building.
