House rentals around Inverness area, Scotland

My siblings and I are planning to take my 86 year old father to Scotland next fall and hope to visit the Inverness/Nairn area where his mother was born and raised. There will be 8 adults in total and I am hoping to find a rental home to stay in for approximately one week within that general vicinity. Any suggestions on rental agencies, websites or referrals to actual landlords would be greatly appreciated. Hoping we can find something in the $2500 US per week range.
Thank-you.

There is a five star self catering property just south of Inverness. It is the Tordarroch Wing of Dunlichity House

Check out this place http://www.aigas-holidays.co.uk/

Five converted farm cottages - west of Inverness and south of Beauly. You could rent two of them and be well under your budget. Plus the added goody of a nice nine hole golf course in the bottom of the garden

If you email me, I have a list of agencies I can send you. My favourites are LHH (Large Holiday Houses- but they have Little Holiday houses too, and they're based in Inverness)and Discover Scotland.

Not a house but an apartment - we stayed here:

Dolphin Bay Suites
http://www.dolphinbaysuites.com/

Room 3 had the most spectacular view of the bay. We would look out morning, noon, and night, and think, we could just stay here forever! The place was a bit sparse, but suited our needs just fine. Note that we really did have the best view - I don't think many of the other rooms would be as fabulous.

I should add - at the Dolphin Bay Suites, our room had a washer/dryer combo but the dryer part did NOT work.
