Nice pub and atmosphere. Shame about the food. The chips were overcooked. Most of them were inedible. Due to allergies, I couldn't have the dairy aspects of the burger but was offered an alternative when I ordered. Unfortunately, when it arrived the alternatives I'd been...More

Situated on the eastern shore of Loch Ness this charming restaurant has stunning views. Parking can be a bit difficult on hot sunny days with families heading for the small beach next to the restaurant. I would think wheelchair access would be a problem too...More
