Our review

The Inchnacardoch Lodge, now known under its slightly more pronounceable moniker of The Inch Hotel, is located just outside the beautiful Highland village of Fort Augustus. The area is a particularly scenic one that is characterised by a number of nearby canal locks linking the Caledonian Canal with Loch Ness, making it a great place from which to take a boat trip. Many guests stay at The Inch to explore the wonderful Highland countryside and all it has to offer, but however the day has been spent it is sure to end with sitting in front of the fire and perhaps by choosing from one of the many Scotch malt whiskies they have on offer in the bar.

Built over 150 years ago by the Lovat family as a hunting lodge, this lovely old building has a rich history and was used as an RAF station during World War II. Now a hotel, The Inch warmly welcomes guests to relax in the lounge before taking dinner in the award-winning restaurant. The kitchen team take great pride in selecting food from Scotland’s rich larder of fish and game to showcase true Highland hospitality. There are a variety of bedrooms to choose from including the magnificent Loch Ness four-poster suite and also interconnecting rooms that are ideal for families. 

The hotel enjoys splendid views across a neatly manicured lawn, which has picnic tables, and across a meadow of grazing Highland cattle, which rolls down to Loch Ness. Whatever your reason for visiting this most beautiful part of Scotland, a stay at The Inch Hotel would be a great choice.
