we stayed above the restaurant. It stank of stale oil and had to keep the windows closed to avoid the smell. it had an exceptionally cramped bathroom. Not happy memories although had looked nice from the photos. Room should be used for staff or storage instead

We had a delicious meal and good service, plus enjoyed the atmosphere of the constantly packed restaurant. It is a shame it didn't open earlier (eg from 5pm), as there were quite a few travellers walking around looking to have a pre-dinner drink but nothing much open in the tiny village.

Before going to Fiddler's we checked out the other top picks in the town and decided this was definitely the best choice. As it happened, we stayed in the area for two nights and ate there twice. Food very nice. Service amiable. Decent choice of draft beers. Big menu. We found that the starters were quite large, often interesting and... More

Good food, lovely inside. We had accommodation in the neighbourhood and really there is no many choices. Food was lovely and whisky was excellent. Stuff was avoiding guests so we were tempted to slip away without paying at it was rather expensive ;) But I wanted to buy lovely whisky glasses so we paid ;)

I visited Fiddlers, looking for a hearty meal and a good beer. The hamburger came looking like a huge tower with two beautiful beef patties with a side of chips. The restaurant was cosy, the staff friendly and service was prompt. I enjoyed a local beer and found the meal to be good value for money.

Warm hospitable highland pub with good food and huge range of whiskys. Located in the village of Drumnadrochit on the A82 south of Inverness.
