“Nice little village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This was a nice stop for us. We enjoyed a beer and some fish and chips while watching the boats passing through the Caledonian Canal. It was interesting to see how the Canal works.

I loved getting a beer and watching the boats wait to come down the Locks. Scot's Place had good food and beer.

“Wonderful town....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

we spent a lovely afternoon here and enjoyed every minute... we went on a boat trip on the loch, watched boats going up and down the lochs, wandered around the shops had a lovely coffee in the Boathouse restaurant overlooking the loch (would highly recommend) just walk along the foot path next to the loch ness cruises... and took many lovely photographs. Would visit again :-)
