Loch Ness Lodge

Loch Ness, near Inverness, Scotland


The lodge provides mammoth breakfasts each day, and they prioritise local suppliers when choosing their ingredients so you can rest assured that those eggs come from happy chickens. Hot choices include creamy porridge, a full Highland breakfast, scrambled egg with smoked salmon, smoked haddock with poached egg and homemade pancakes with caramelised banana and maple syrup. There’s also a cold buffet with freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit platter, gourmet muesli and, best of all, a rich stewed fruit compote laced with jasmine syrup.

Later in the day, guests gravitate towards the lounge area for complimentary sweet treats at afternoon tea. We reckon a pot of English Breakfast with scones and fresh-baked cakes is the ideal way to unwind after a hike around the loch. If you’re after something more substantial, you’ll have to head out as no other meals are served on-site. Scott and his team are well versed in the local gastronomy scene and will happily make recommendations for eateries in and around Inverness.

Save to favouritesPrintMailLoch Ness LodgeWith dramatic views out across the water to a string of craggy mountains beyond, this feels like a remote and historic Highland retreat; yet itís a brand new building and, unbelievably, Inverness is only 15 minutesí drive away. All credit to Scott Sutherland and his sister Iona, who inherited the lochside land from their parents and have created an imposing yet secluded hideaway. A turret at one end of the long, grey-roofed building adds a touch of Baronial grandeur; clever landscaping hides the A82 from view; and a private underpass below the road gives secret access to the loch's shoreline. Inside, the guest lounges and 7 [r:UK057:bedrooms] are a lesson in immaculate sophistication, with a mix of upmarket, contemporary furnishings, fresh flowers and family heirlooms. The feel is country-house-comfort rather than look-at-me showiness, and makes for a cosseting retreat after a day spent hiking in bracingly dreich Highland weather, or Nessie-spotting out on the loch.
