The Scottish Highlands have always promised romance. With all those heather-clad mountains, misty lochs and ancient myths, it’s almost as though the land was purpose-built for passion.
Find your spark with today’s Big Deal at the Inch Hotel, a family-run, country lodge that sits above picturesque Inchnacardoch Bay on Loch Ness.
This relaxing offer is for two people to enjoy an overnight stay in a standard twin or double room at the cosy Inch Hotel.
Each of the hotel’s fourteen, ensuite rooms have been individually designed and feature hot drinks trays, flat screen TVs/DVD players and WiFi. Many have stunning views over the loch.
As if that isn’t enough, a bottle of sparkling wine will be waiting to greet you in your room on arrival.
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the offer and it’s a great showcase for locally sourced products.
Called the Highlander, the hotel’s cooked breakfast is a feast which includes smoked bacon, venison sausage, grilled tomato, mushrooms, potato scone, traditional haggis, award-winning Munro’s black pudding and eggs any which way you want them.
If you choose to take other meals in the hotel’s restaurant then you are in for a memorable meal. As well as views over the loch, the restaurant boasts modern Scottish menus which have been awarded an AA Rosette.
Think along the lines of starters such as the Laphroaig and citrus cured salmon, toasted croutons, lemon and capers, all served with a herb fromage blanc
Main courses might includes dishes like the chicken supreme wrapped in Ayrshire bacon, olive oil fondants with wild mushrooms, roast beetroot, artichoke puree and pan jus or the hand-cut sirloin steak garni with country house style chips, roasted tomato and herb mustard.
See & do
The Inch Hotel Loch Ness provides the perfect base to explore the beautiful Great Glen and Loch Ness area. The iconic Urquhart Castle is just a 20 minute drive away while the nearby Fort Augustus village is the base for Loch Ness Cruises and trips along the Caledonian Canal.
There are plenty of walks that start right outside the hotel’s front door or you could just kick back in front of the log fire in the hotel and sip one of their sixty or so whiskies in the company of a good book.
