A stunning 5 star hotel - the ultimate in luxury accommodation. Impeccably trained staff, and Michelin star quality food. Needless to say, it isn't cheap to stay here, but well worth it if you can. Recommended.
Nestling in the foothills of the mighty Ben Nevis, Inverlochy Castle (a previous winner of the Scottish Hotel of the Year award) - sits amidst some of Scotland's finest scenery. Inverlochy was built in 1863 by the first Lord Abinger, near the site of the original 13th century fortress. Inverlochy had been a private residence for over a hundred years until 1969 when it was converted from a family home to Scotland's finest country house hotel. Each of the 17 bedrooms, all with private bathroom, have their own individual design and character, along with splendid views of the grounds and surrounding mountains. Room facilities include 30 inch Phillips flat screen TV, personal laptop computer with internet access, personal safe, CD player, radio, iron/ironing board. DVD player, Video player and Playstation II are available upon request. There are various activities and attractions both at the hotel and close by. The hotel itself offers a broad range of activities including tennis, fishing on the loch, a walled garden, clay pigeon shooting, falconry display and a full sized snooker table. In addition, within a very short drive you can enjoy Ben Nevis - the highest mountain in the UK, cruises on Loch Ness, hiking, mountain biking, pony trekking and skiing - with two ski centres to choose from. The small town of Fort William is only three miles away with a busy high street for gift shopping. Please note: the child rate does not include breakfast, it is payable directly to the hotel.
