Tips from locals
Traditional highland pub & restaurant on the shores of Loch Ness. After eating take a stroll on the pebble beach for breathtaking views. 20 min drive
Traditional Highland pub and eatery on the shores of Loch Ness and only a 20 minute drive from the cottage. They also provide a shuttle bus service to and from the town at the weekends. You do need to let them know that you would like the shuttle service at least 24 hours prior to your booking.
15 mins drive away...30 mins cycle on cycle path/minor roads all of the way... pub grub and a drink or two looking out onto Loch Ness - very popular in summertime weekends, booking advisable.
Good beers and food the inn is situated at the head of Loch Ness with the most iconic view of Loch Ness. Used in movies, adverts, paintings there are also great walks along the beach and follow the river round to see Aldourie Castle ( which is an upscale hotel now) , very charming with fairy castle…
If you are driving out to Lochness to see our elusive monster then the Dories Inn is a popular busy pub with nice food - book in advance. Then have a walk on the stony beach beside it and search for Nessie.
