Scotland’s finest hotel and restaurant set in 500 acres of garden and ground, uniquely located amongst the glens and lochs at the foot of Ben Nevis. Inverlochy Castle Hotel’s consummate service and fabulous rooms make it a picturesque place to visit
Inverlochy Castle is located amidst the scenic foothills of Ben Nevis overlooking its own loch. Built in 1863 by the first Lord Abinger, near the site of the original 13th century fortress. Inverlochy had been a private residence for over a hundred years until 1969 when it was converted from a family home to Scotland’s finest country house hotel. In September 1873 during a trip to Balmoral, Queen Victoria spent a week at Inverlochy sketching and painting where she wrote in her diaries ‘I never saw a lovelier or more romantic spot’. There is plenty to do from scenic walks around the stunning grounds, also taking in the private loch and boat house, to clay pigeon shooting, archery and tomahawk throwing.
Luxurious Amenities and Modern Conveniences
Each of the 17 bedrooms, all with private bathroom, has their own individual design and character, along with splendid views of the grounds and surrounding mountains. Room facilities include 30 inch Phillips mirror televisions, personal laptop computer with internet access, personal safe, cd player, radio, iron/ironing board.
