We came here on New Years EVE EVE. We had a delicious meal, sharing platters and smoked haddock which was the nicest I have EVER HAD! Very friendly pub, the locals are all lovely too!

We stopped there on our tour of Scotland. We booked after seeing some good reviews on here. We were not disappointed. The bedroom must have just been redone (the cream carpet was still very cream. The restaurant / pub was pretty quiet and well decorated. The food was very nice. You must try the local beer from the Lock Ness... More

Stopped to eat here on our way back from touring Urquhart Castle. They had a great selection of delicious food. The BEST cottage pie I've ever had and delicious dessert. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Visited Drumnadrochit last week with my partner. We had very litle choice of where we could go for dinner, as most other restaurants in the area were closed for the season. However, we were not disappointed at the Loch Ness Inn! A bit pricier than what we would normally pay for a meal out but so worth it. My partner... More

We went out found this place by chance after a boat trip on the Loch, the person in the petrol station suggested it, the food was simply amazing and the services was very good, not sue if it was because the owner was there, but they were all very on it, the owner was extremely nice and looked after us,...

This is a Hotel and Restaurant tucked just off the A82 between Drumnadrochit and Urquhart Castle. The Hotel and Restaurant are open all year. They recently have a new manager who has made a good place even better. Amazing and inventive food to suit all tastes. Access is easy, own car park, busses to Inverness, Fort William and Skye are...

The Loch Ness Inn is a far cry from the Lewiston Arms of old. .The pub part is still there, though small, but the range of food served in the restaurant is lovely, up - to-date menus with a great range of Scottish produce included

The Loch Ness Inn is situated approximately half way between Drumbuie Farm where we were staying and the Urquhart Castle. Since Fiddler's was closed there weren't too many dining options at Drumnadrochit! So first, Loch Ness Inn gets 5 stars just for being open in all seasons! There is a warmth in the place that makes it welcoming. They have... More

My husband and I did the walk from Drumnadrochit to Urquhart castle and back again (which was lovely) our original plan was to go to the Fiddlers in Drumnadrochit on our return however we found out that is now closed for the season. Instead we popped along in the car to the Loch Ness Inn, and I am very glad... More
