Very hospitable and cosy. A life saver after we were let down by a B&B we had reserved in Mallaig. Nothing was too much trouble for Pauline who kindly fed us late and gave us lots of local tips. The manageress Eilidh was there for breakfast which was also superb. Scottish hospitality at its best.

This inn is a fun stop when heading from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye. The inn is a 5-10 minute walk from the ScotRail platform, the food is tasty, staff are very friendly, it's quiet, and nice Scottish countryside views. My wife and I actually visited back in 2012 and loved the atmosphere of the place. We ended up... More

Stopped here on way back from Skye it was a chilly day and inside was roaring coal fire. How charming. The lady who was serving chatted away as if she'd known you all her life. The food was hearty and wholesome would recommend the venison and sticky toffee pudding

Stopped off for an early evening meal on the way back to our campsite. We had heard from someone else on the site that the food was good. We both chose the special which was slow roasted belly of pork. Having never had this dish before I didnt know what to expect and was not disappointed. The food was beautifully... More

Just had lunch at the Lochailort Inn. Great surroundings - it was a beautiful, sunny day but a bit chilly so it was great to sit by a roaring fire. A terrific selection; lovely, fresh food, beautifully cooked; substantial portions (I had the pate and the salmon en croute which were both delicious) - and a free glass of prosecco... More

Stayed here last month, I was surprised with the warm welcome and amazing location. The Inn was clean and the food was very tasty. The service was good and very efficient. Had an enjoyable time sitting by the fire with the locals listening to their tales. I would certainly recommend and come back.

The hotel is situated in a very rural location on the main A830 road between Fort William and Mallaig. We arrived by train and the inn is a 5 minute walk from Lochailort station (this is a request stop). Found the hotel on an internet search so did not know what to expect. We were travelling between Christmas and New... More

The Lochailort Inn, on the beautiful Road to the Isles, and only 300 metres from a remote railway station on the West Highland Railway, is the perfect place for a weekend to declutter and revive, what used to be called "getting away from it all". The refurbished and comfy hotel is set in outstanding scenery and on opening our curtains... More
