Abertarff House is of high regional architectural and historical significance as the oldest secular building in Inverness.  The property is a two storey and attic Laird's house built around 1593, the original owners are unknown.  Later it became the residence of Colonel Archibald Fraser of Beaufort and Abertarff, the Lord Lovat who took part in the 1745 Jacobite Rising.

As the offices of An Comunn Gaidhealach from 1967 and the offices of the Highland Region of the NTS from 1985, the property has historical significance as part of the late 20th century cultural and conservation movement in Scotland.
