Any reviewer who gives Loch Ness Lodge less than 5 stars is simply impossible to please. Our stay was flawless all around -- from the beautiful grounds and room overlooking the lake, to the delicious homemade tea treats and breakfasts, to the most gracious and welcoming owner Scott. Scott was so friendly and kind. He took the time to listen... More

After a 7 hour drive we were praying that it was all going to be worth it.... and it absolutely was. When we drove up the driveway, the grounds, building and surroundings absolutely took our breath away. Scott greeted us with a great big smile and instantly made us feel at home. The Lodge is absolutely fabulous, so warm, welcoming... More

Received a wonderfully warm welcome from Scott on arrival, we were made to feel immediately at home as we were shown to our room in this beautiful b&b. There is no doubt that this b&b has the wow factor, it really does look as though it has stepped straight out of the pages of a high end glossy interior design... More

I stayed at the lodge for three days last week with my wife and another couple. It was great! Scott helped us with dinner accommodations our first night and the breakfast each morning was a wonderful way to start each day. When we go back to visit the Highlands again, this will be the place I stay.
