Had scallops to start which were perfect followed by the classic fish and chips. The Dores Inn is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner on the east side of Loch Ness. The bar area is dog friendly too.

Hard to tell. There is not too much room inside because it is an old house. I guess it also depends on the size of the dog. It could work if you book a table in a corner. Or consult the patrons first.
