The Inch Hotel, Fort Augustus
A Must Stay
The interior was lovely and cozy. The food was first rate and innovative. The view of Loch Ness was the crowning touch. Our best overall stay in the two weeks we were in Scotland.

Prepaid, confirmed reservation NOT honored!
After much research, we made a prepaid reservation three months in advance for a room with a view of Loch Ness in this hotel, along with a reservation for a window table for dinner celebrating our 38th anniversary. We even had an email acknowledgment for the dinner reservation. When we arrived to check-in, we were told that they could not accommodate either our room or our dinner reservation, and that they had rebooked us another hotel. Apparently, they had sent us another email the evening before (which we hadn’t seen), although I also had an email from earlier that day letting me know the check-in time. After much discussion, The Inch agreed to cover our breakfast, and gave us an allowance towards dinner at the other property. However, the properties are quite different, as are the restaurants. We also wasted a lot of time out of our one day In Fort Augustus dealing with this. We were very disappointed, especially as the restaurant and hotel were highly rated.

Nice stopover in the Scottish Highlands
Very quaint hotel. Might have been a little manor house or castle at one point (at least it looks like). We were only there one night, so didn't think to ask. It's very close to Fort Augustus, which has a very cute little town and an interesting old lock system connecting the Lochs for boats. Was a great stay for a night, but you'll run out of things to do after that... best to hit the road and explore more
