Exactly what we were looking for. A 150 year old, old hunting lodge, with quality bedrooms, excellent food and a lovely lounge with a log burner. It is slightly out of Fort Augustus but an easy back road walk to see the towns sights. The Inch is a peaceful hotel with tentative staff.

The hotel was full of character, a country house feel and lovely warm lit log fireplace. The hotel was situated in a great location with stunning views of the Loch and highland cows. The hotel is very close to Fort Augustus and the Loch Ness exhibition centre. The staff were very welcoming and very friendly. The food, both breakfast and evening meal were exceptional and very tasty. The hotel had all covid safety measures in place and made us feel very safe. The hotel had adequate parking facilities also. A lovely hotel and a pleasant stay! I would definitely would go back again.

Gorgeous hotel set in the hill above Loch Ness. Well appointed room with huge bathroom. Breakfast room has amazing views that, while we were there were revealed as the mist lifted. Very romantic! Stunning Scottish breakfast with lots of local ingredients. The very highest level of Covid19 measures, including our room being sealed with a label after cleaning. And Johnnie, our host, was the loviest, helpful person you could hope to meet. The whole experience was a treat!
