Base for exploring
The Inch Hotel Loch Ness offers the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Great Glen and Loch Ness area. Scenic Urquhart Castle is just twenty minutes away by car, whilst Fort Augustus village centre is walking distance from the hotel.
For the more active, there are a number of stunning walks that start right outside the front door. The truly energetic could even make good use of the winter snow and strap on their skis.
Or you could just hunker down in front of the log fire in the hotel and sip a dram in the company of a good book.
From its earliest days as a hunting lodge some 150 years ago, The Inch Hotel has been giving guests a warm Highland welcome.
