Say what you like about Nessie, she pulls in the punters. Any Scot announcing their nationality anywhere in the world will find that the second question they are asked is about the Loch Ness monster (the first is invariably about attire worn under a kilt). She remains one of Scotland’s most popular (albeit elusive) tourist attractions.
Prepare to have all the relevant Nessie facts at your disposal after snapping up today’s Big Deal, offering a stay right at the world centre of Loch Ness studies, in the Drumnadrochit Hotel near Inverness.
The Drumnadrochit Hotel is located within the 5* Loch Ness Exhibition Centre, with great views over the Great Glen and the pretty village of Drunnadrochit. It’s the ideal base for exploring this evocative corner of the Highlands.
Available seven days a week, the Big Deal option one is for two people to enjoy an overnight B&B stay in a standard double or twin room, with full Scottish breakfast, three course dinner in the bistro and entry to the Exhibition Centre.
Option two adds an additional night’s stay on a B&B basis, to give you a little longer to convince your partner no, that was not just a shadow on the loch surface…
The simple, contemporary décor standard twin or double en suite rooms have plush furnishings, TV, hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities.
The deal includes a full Scottish breakfast to set you up for a day’s exploring with a three course meal in the bistro also included.
The menu has a strong Scottish accent, including starters such as local haggis with a whisky cream sauce and mains that include slow-cooked Highland venison casserole with potatoes and vegetables. Vegetarian options are also included and there is a selection of classic desserts including a warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream.
The Loch Ness Exhibition Centre is on your doorstep and entry is included with the deal. The Nessie story is given comprehensive coverage, but there is also a wealth of information on the geology and natural history of the Loch.
Exploring the Great Glen is a delight, with nearby attractions including Urquhart Castle. The hotel café can supply a picnic for lochside lunches.
The Drumnadrochit Hotel has attracted plenty of warm recommendations on TripAdvisor, including these recent reviews, edited for length:

The Great Glen has a unique beauty and mystery that makes it a compelling destination for a short getaway from the city.
This Big Deal at the Drumnadrochit Hotel puts you right next to the loch and with handy access to the Exhibition Centre, making it the ideal choice for a little springtime monster-spotting. Remember, she’s more scared of you than you are of her…
