We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff, hotel and surroundings are amazing. The New Years Eve Hogmanay celebration was so much fun, great atmosphere and the best way to bring in the new year with gun fire and fireworks. The dancing, the people and hospitality was second to none. Highly recommend you pay a visit.

We had a memorable four nights at the wonderful Lovat Hotel in Fort Augustus, Loch Ness. Everything was just right, the superb location, the beautifully restored hotel with its authentic Scottish country house feel, the delicious and always original cuisine. But most of all the management and the staff of the hotel with their unerring attention to getting the details... More

When we go out to eat we want something that is different and more tasty than we can make at home, as my husband is an excellent cook! We had eaten at the Lovat numerous times, so knew we could expect an amazing meal, but Christmas dinner surpassed our expectations. This was the first time that we had eaten out... More

My wife, myself and our 2 dogs stayed in a studio, that is one of six situated along one side of the car park of the hotel, for our Hogmanay celebrations. The room was very clean and well set out with a separate shower room, all with underfloor heating which you have control over. Seeing as our dogs were staying... More

We have stayed at The Lovat Arms on a number of occasions for single nights and have always been impressed with the hotel generally. This year we decided to stay for Christmas! and what a good decision that was! The hotel was originally built in the early 1900s and has been lovingly restored with both traditional and modern elements. As... More

My husband and I stayed overnight here in our way to the ferry in Uig Skye. We have two Labradors so had the dog friendly rooms. Everything from the check in was excellent. The room was well equipped for two dogs. They had dog treats and a towel with bowls for their food ( a nice touch). We enquired about... More

Loving it at the Lovat. Such a welcoming friendly hotel. All the staff members are great, from Caitlyn checking us in, serving us breakfast, Wee Sean serving us drinks at the bar & chatting with wee Sean's mum. You all made us feel very welcome. The food at the restaurant is excellent. At this stage of our whirlwind trip of... More
