We were staying at the lock keepers cottage in Fort Augustus and eat in the restaurant. We were greeted by the owner who let me try a sample of the local beer. After such a warm welcome we decided to eat in the restaurant , the young man bar was very helpful and went through the menu. We ordered the... More

We stopped here for one night during a tour round Scotland. On arrival we were met by a young bar man who explained everything to us and went through every item on the menu. He was extremely informative. The room was nice and seemed to have been recently refurbished and was tastefully done. Evening meal was fantastic, the cullen skink... More

I only visited the restaurant - didn't stay in the hotel. The food was great. By far the best meal I've had in Fort Augustus. Plus there was a lot of it, so I was completely stuffed when we left. Affordable prices and the waitress was very kind. It wad a cute little restaurant, my only problem was their choice... More

Getting to the hotel bar and asking where reception is to be told that it was the Bar ! The hotel is small but the hotel side is fresh, clean and well decorated. The access is tight and the rooms not huge but that's only because the building is genuinely old. It isn't a modern hotel and it's all the... More

Lovely chambers with clean and comfortable shared bath rooms. First floor can be a bit noisy until the pub closes. The pub is very nice, with awesome food. The salmon starter is a must! Great breakfast as well!

Our party of four dropped in for dinner and we were squeezed into the main bar for the meal. The menu has a good selection of pub grub and a couple of local specialities such as steak and ale pie and cullen skink. The quality of the food was fair enough but we had to wait over half an hour... More

We were staying in Fort Austus and had already tried the other pubs on the canal when we decided to give this one a try. The entire operation was purchased less than a year ago and is under new management. The fish soup(Cullen Skink) is the house specialty and was very good. The service and people we're wonderful.The owner also... More

We stayed in the triple room for a quick one night stop over. Richmond house has a lovely charm to it, perfectly situated beside Loch Ness. The staff were incredibly friendly and very welcoming. The room was very clean and had all the essentials. The best part of Richmond house has to be the food, single handily the best food... More

We have been, just for a night, in Fort Augustus with an Highlands Tour and we tried this hotel for the dinner. The room was pretty small, but the food was delicious and the staff really friendly and nice.

We had dinner in the restaurant at the back of the pub. The food was exceptional. We had the salmon and even though we were completely full, squeezed in a dessert for two. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
