We stayed here on the third night of a 5 night trip around Scotland. This was the most expensive and the least exciting of them all. The room is very "motel" like - very small and there our bathroom had a very pungent chemical smell. The bathroom floor is industrial type lino - not very nice to walk with bare...

The food was out of this world. My husband is still talking about his main course and the bar in the back is great fun. Would...

We visited the Loch Ness Inn for a drink and lunch with the family last week. Lovely friendly warm welcome from the staff. Food was great and well priced. We were also really impressed with the kids food menu - proper food and perfect for our kids. We all had a great time. Thanks.

If this restaurant was in London it would have rave reviews. Had dinner with my wife. All produce is locally sourced and very talented chefs make it very tasty. Some traditional Scottish dishes as well as international cuisine is on the menu. If I had to find fault, it would simply be the fact that my knife was too blunt...
