The History of Meallmore

Meallmore Ltd, owned by the Hennessey family, opened the doors of its first nursing home for the elderly in 1987 at Meallmore Lodge in Daviot, just south of Inverness.

Since then, the business has grown steadily, with an ever expanding portfolio of care homes and a staff team who pride themselves on delivering first class care.

Over the years, we have been regularly recognised at national caring awards for our work in improving the lives of the elderly and vulnerable.

Today, tomorrow and the next 30 years, our mission will remain the same - to consistently be a great place to live and a great place to work.
