We had eaten here on a previous visit to the area and knew we wanted to return to stay - we weren't disappointed! Jill goes out of her way to make your stay as pleasant as possible, the food is first class and the rooms immaculate. We enjoyed a magnificent sunset following our delicious dinner in the comfortable conservatory. A... More

After having 4 nights Glamping decided to splurge out on our last night and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Ardshealach Lodge was beautiful and so peaceful I wishes we could have stayed longer. Our host Jill was amazing and her dinner and breakfast were both delicious. Our bedroom was lovely and the biggest bed ever slept in.... More

We were staying up the road at Mingarry so the Ardshealach Lodge Restaurant seemed like a convenient place for an evening meal one night. After our first visit we went back a couple of days later. The Lodge is on the banks of Loch Shiel with magnificent views north over the loch. Gill, the owner and chef, produces delicious meals... More

Ardshealach lodge needs a new name. I have a suggestion. Utopia. The views are delightful and the service excellent. The concept of taking your order whilst sat in the wonderful conservatory or lovely gardens whilst enjoying the scenery is an ideal one. Food was delicious and presented very well. Service was great, staff couldn't have been more helpful. The waiter... More

Went there tonight. Very nice touch to have to wait for dinner to be ready while sitting in the conservatory with a beautiful view over the loch and the garden. Very friendly ginger cat entertaining guests. Very good food: we had smoked haddock paté, mussels, duck with blueberry sauce and the fillet of plaice stuffed with scallops. And I also... More

absolutely stunning location with views over Loch Shiel, framed by the most gorgeous garden. This restaurant hides its light under a bushel, and a rare treat in Ardnamurchan. Small, relaxed and very friendly the restaurant and its staff welcome you with pride. The food was amazing, well presented and excellent value for money, with a good range of meat, fish... More

I booked this as simple overnight accommodation for a work trip with some overseas visitors. I said we might arrive late but was told not to worry, a meal could be provided. To arrive late and find this delightful place, lights on in the conservatory providing a warm welcome was most encouraging. But then we found the rooms were beautiful... More

Had read good reviews about this place but the actual experience has to be tried. Very comfortable surroundings and staff lovely.Good choice on menu and food delicious. If i had one complaint -and it was maybe just me -but the food was too hot!
