Great friendly service and lovely food. There is an interesting walk along the canal close by with lots of boats to look at and the first lock gates off the Loch Ness

Quirky little restaurant, really friendly, excellent food and great atmosphere. The best Haggis, neeps and tatties. Steak is mouth watering good.

We visited Oakwood for dinner after finding it on trip advisor and were not disapointed. The restaurant itself was lovely, cosy and warm. Service was very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The food itself was incredible, big portions of delicious home style cooking with fresh and quality ingredients. I would walk back to Inverness for another piece of chocolate... More

Also loved the Harris tweed... More

No nonsense, good home meal for good value. Lovely surroundings with friendly staff and even a wee gift shop. Unlicensed restaurant but you can take your favourite tipple with no corkage 😊
