As recommendations go, it’s hard to better Queen Victoria’s 1873 review of Inverlochy Castle.
She wrote in her diaries that she had never seen ‘a lovelier or more romantic spot’.
Scotland’s finest country house hotel, Inverlochy Castle is a world class destination which sits just outside Fort William.
Located amongst the glens, lochs and mountains of the West Highlands of Scotland, Inverlochy is a seventeen room, boutique hotel where every detail of guests’ comfort and enjoyment has been carefully considered.
From the superb cooking to the Rolls Royce Phantom which guests can hire, everything about Inverlochy Castle Hotel reflects the very best of Scottish hospitality.
Naturally, the elegant surroundings are matched by the warmth and friendliness of the staff.
It really is a stunning hotel and this Big Deal would make a stunning Christmas gift.
This Big Deal is a fantastic opportunity to experience all that Inverlochy Castle Hotel has to offer.

Inverlochy Castle Hotel is a member of The Collection, a group of small, luxury hotels under the management of ICMI.
Breakfast is included in the offer. If you choose to take other meals here then you are in for a truly memorable experience.
Dinner at Inverlochy takes place in three dining rooms, each decorated with elaborate, period furniture presented as gifts to Inverlochy Castle from the King of Norway.
The menu features modern British cuisine which is internationally recognised by all major guides and has been awarded three AA Rosettes.
The four course table d’hôte changes regularly but typical dishes might be the caramelised West Coast scallops with celeriac, apple and truffle pesto followed by the assiette of Dornoch lamb served with baby navet, sprouting broccoli and onion cream.
Customers dining in the restaurant will be given a complimentary glass of Champagne.
Gents are asked to wear a jacket and tie at dinner.
Inverlochy Castle Hotel is situated in Lochaber, A.K.A. The Outdoor Capital of the UK, and is well known for its mountain biking and climbing. Of course, Inverlochy can arrange anything from horse riding to fishing for guests. Ben Nevis can be seen from a number of the hotel’s rooms should you fancy stretching your legs.
Alternatively, take tea in the Great Hall and see if you can spot the entrance to the secret library.
Inverlochy has its own helicopter landing site but it’s equally as accessible by car with Glasgow, Perth and Edinburgh all under a three hour drive. This makes Inverlochy Castle Hotel very convenient for a short break.
Queen Elizabeth II and Robert De Niro have stayed here. Their thoughts on their stay aren’t recorded but lots of other visitors have written to TripAdvisor. This recent review is typical. We’ve cut it for length:
‘Beautiful hotel with excellent service. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Although we stayed in one of the smallest rooms, it was still a decent size, comfortable, with amazing views… What stood out for me personally was the flawless service and attention to details we received at this hotel. There was an old world feel to the whole experience… we felt we could request anything, and the staff would go above and beyond to accommodate us.’
The Big Deal writer can add to the praise. I stayed here once and I’ve never forgotten it. From the grandeur of the Great Hall to the opulence of the rooms via the superb cooking, Inverlochy is a hotel that stays with you.
Make someone happy
Inverlochy Castle Hotel is a very special place and this is a very special offer.
With vouchers valid until the end of March 2016, this Big Deal is a tremendous opportunity to treat a loved one.
It would make a truly memorable and romantic Christmas gift. If it was good enough for Queen Victoria…
