Our review

For a great escape to the Highlands, Glenfinnan House, a charming 18th century stone shooting lodge, offers the most magical, majestic location on Loch Shiel with stunning views of Ben Nevis. A wide lawn sweeps down to the shore and around the bay the monument of Bonnie Prince Charlie marks the site where in 1745 he raised his Standard. The original owner, Alexander MacDonald VII was wounded at Culloden as a member of the Jacobite army, and over many generations, the family has preserved its authentic sense of history and period architecture.

Step through the front door to experience a warm welcome, from your charming hosts, Manja and Duncan Gibson, and also from the log fire blazing in the grand Hall. All around are stag heads, wood panelling and paintings including one of the Jacobite rising at Glenfinnan. Fourteen bedrooms range from family accommodation, four poster beds to the luxury honeymoon suite, all with period vintage furnishings and homely comfort. To experience the character of this country house, there are no televisions or room keys so that the overall ambience is that of staying with family or friends. 

The authentic Highland hospitality begins in the cosy bar is the place to sample Scottish ales, whisky and local craft gins as well as hearty pub food (Haggis, Haddock & Chips), as well as chef specialities – regional seafood (Isle of Mull scallops, estate venison and chargrilled steak. As well as traditional folk tunes on the soundtrack, live music gigs offer superb entertainment. As well as more casual bar meals, experience a relaxed, romantic dinner in the elegant 1745 Restaurant with loch and mountain views.

The location is ideal for a wide range of guests from families to romantic couples who wish to experience the spectacular Highland landscape – Fort William is the outdoor capital of the UK - Ben Nevis mountain climbing, hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, rafting, kayaking, canoeing and sailing. Experience the wildlife, Loch Shiel boat trips, golfing, and take the ferry over the sea to Skye. The famous Glenfinnan viaduct railway bridge, used as a scene in several Harry Potter films, is a short walk away through the Glenfinnan Estate where you are likely to spot herds of Red Deer. During the summer tourist season, the Jacobite steam railway runs excursions from Fort William to Mallaig.

No wonder Glenfinnan House hotel attracts travellers from across the UK, Europe, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand who love the relaxed casual, cosy Highland hospitality. “Amazing place, amazing food – Scotland at its best,” “My yearly fix” are just some of the rave comments in the guest book.
