Winner of several Scottish Hotel awards Loch Ness Inn provides visitors with the opportunity to meet locals and eat meals sourced in the Scottish highlands. The venison used in their meals is caught wild in the hills above Loch Laggen. Selling traditional Scotch dishes such as Cullen Skink alongside haggis bobotie – a Scottish take on the South African dish – customers are truly spoiled for choice. Five minute drive from Urquhart Castle and within driving distance of Inverness, Chanonry Point (where dolphins can be seen in Moray Firth) and Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.

A beautiful Victorian building set in abundant cultivated grounds, The Lovat Hotel was first recorded as being used as a hotel in 1869. The owners strive for eco-conscious running of the hotel, and as proof they use a biomass wood chip boiler and for every hotel room booked in the hotel they give 15p to a Trees for Life scheme. The restaurant in the hotel has won multiple awards in the last few years.
