The Dores Inn was always very busy because of two things, friendly staff and good food! If you are in the area you definitely must visit, it has lovely views round the back, of the loch.

Gastropub with a perfect view of Loch Ness. We were a party of 23 and the food was nicely cooked and delivered efficiently.
Nice walk afterwards around the shoreline and go Nessie spotting necessary to digest the food a good idea.

We stayed in Fort Augustus in October 2012, although only just over 26 miles away is nearly an hour in the car, it was so worth the journey we had two evening meals here and stopped twice at lunchtime on the way back from Inverness. Rib eye steaks were to die for although we wished we had given the starters a miss - not because they weren't delicious, just the dinner portions were generous. Scallops were cooked to perfection and the pate was equally tasty. Staff are very friendly and the service is good without being over bearing or in your face; when some beer was spilt on a menu it was whisked away and replaced with a clean one in the blink of an eye. The specials seemed to be changed on a daily basis and offered some lovely deserts, the mallow slice was yummy as was the lime cheesecake. The setting is gorgeous and dogs are welcome in the bar which is another nice feature. Prices are probably average for the area, not cheap but you get what you pay for and the quality is definitely above average, we will definitely return.

We visited midweek and it was fairly busy, as usual. I had Sirloin steak, which did not disappoint, as I had feared it couldn't be as good as last time, but it was just as good.

Other diners in my party had the gammon steaks and minute steaks which they said were easily the best they had ever eaten. We had lovely drinks such as real ale and I had a Hendrick's gin complete with cucumber slices. These touches are the attention to detail, which make such a difference.

As I think I stated in my last review though, the toilets are freezing and the entrance from the bar smells of urine. Such a letdown in contrast to the nice dining area.
