We had decided to drive from Port Appin and explore Fort William. Took all of 5 minutes to realise that the shops and food offerings were not for us and escaped to Inverlochy Castle where we were greeted cheerfully and had excellent sandwiches and salads from a bar type menu. Took a peek at a couple of rooms and will... More

This is still a working farm but outstations and history around the castle is quite interesting. The castle has had a chequered career. It has been burnt down, sacked and used as a commando training centre. The walks around the castle take you past many different and interesting environments

If you can't stay at the castle, coming for the amazing multi-course dinner is the next best thing. (Or if you are staying here, come for dinner anyway!) Food is fantastic, wine pairings excellent, service exceptional.

The ambiance, the decor, the service, the food...this place is perfect to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, etc. We had a lovely dinner with the wine pairing. It is expensive but worth it.

Inverlochy Castle is a luxurious hotel and restaurant surrounded by beautiful grounds and lakes. While we didn't stay in the main Castle we did enjoy the tasting menu dinner with excellent wine pairings. The John Dory was my favorite among the many delicious plates. Our server was Jule was from Transylvania. He was very sweet and friendly.

We had dinner here on Saturday night and were confronted with a tasting menu. Not my choice, but we went ahead and were very happy. This is an historic hotel and restaurant, and both the building and grounds are beautiful. Pre dinner drinks were served in the living room and outside on the terrace giving you the choice of plush... More

The setting is georgeous. The dining is superb, The staff was very attentive but not intrusive. We could not asked for a lovelier hotel stay than the one we got here. There was a full English breakfast, walks on the grounds, a small loch where we went fishing. Tennis court needed some care and the racquets were child size. Only... More

Dinner was very expensive but we had our own private dinner room. The wines were ok, but not great. Too much salt was used...

We have already rated the restaurant in uor review of the hotel but, for those who simply want to eat her you will not be disappointed. Very high standard of service food and surroundings. Well worth a visit if you like fine food

It is almost certainly the best restaurant within a 50 miles radius. The surroundings in an old Scottish Country House is an opulent setting with perfect views. Ask for a window table to appreciate. The dining room is small and holds about thirty and there is a small family room as well. The atmosphere depends. On a good night it's... More
