Really impressed with the food here. There were 4 of us for dinner. We all had a different selection from the menu and every single one of us loved what we had. The Piri Piri Chicken blew us all away at how spicy but tasty it was. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Super reasonably priced, when the bill... More

This pub is just down from the camp site and serves a great choice of food. No need to drive so can relax with a nice drink as well.

We visited this pub in the afternoon on a Saturday just for a drink. Like most first timers, it wasn't clear where the bar area was, so we ended up going through the restaurant which we felt was a bit rude to diners. Outside is a sign for rooms and restaurant, but not the bar! Anyway, there had been a... More

The restaurant is 5 minute drive from the Loch Ness. It was clean, cozy and decorated with beautiful paintings of this region on the stone walls. The lunch set menu was of good value. My starter was portobello mushroom with cheese and salad. It was absolutely full of taste with the distinct scent of cheese, mushroom and pine nuts. All... More

We had a lovely dinner here. The prawns are incredible, really big and well cooked. My friend had the salmon for main and I had the fish and chips. It was really good. 😊

We visited about a week ago for dinner as we decided to have a nice meal out as on our honeymoon. The food was good, the mussels in particular. My only negative would be on the service, it was ok, but only ok. Staff didn't really seem to want to be there :(

During our stay in Drumnadrochit we decided to visit the loch ness Inn for dinner. We were surprised to how busy it was we were almost turned away because of how busy it was. The food was too expensive in my opinion since what I had was basically a carbonara with some mushrooms and ham added.

Fast and consistent Internet (we were able to stream videos in our room), looks and smells clean, excellent restaurant and bar (great beer selections and save some room for the sticky toffee pudding), consistent and friendly staff (they drop everything in the moment and listen to you), and it is within a short walking distance to the Urquhart Castle and...
