  • Overview

    Loch Ness Lodge is a small boutique hotel overlooking the beautiful and mysterious Loch Ness, 9 miles from the Highland capital of Inverness. Owners Scott & Iona Sutherland have created an intimate, luxurious bolthole on this 18-acre estate with just 7 bedrooms and a spa & treatment area for a spot of pampering. Traditional Scottish style blends with contemporary luxury and there is a sense of classical elegance throughout with open-fireplaces, fine fabrics and antique wooden furniture featuring in the rooms and living areas. This wonderful country retreat is ideal for a romantic escape for 2 and is also available for exclusive-use for intimate weddings & house party celebrations.


    There are activities available right on site at Loch Ness Lodge, including kayaking along the lodge's own private stretch of shoreline and archery in the grounds. Your welcoming hosts are happy to organise a programme of activities to suit your individual tastes from the adventure sports of white water rafting, mountain biking & paintball to the more traditional pastimes of fishing or shooting. A helicopter trip is a great way to see the landscape or perhaps you would prefer to explore it on foot on a guided hill walk.

    An hour's drive from the lodge, the Rothiemurcus Estate offers some alternative activities such as husky dog sledging, raft building, 4x4 off-road driving, bridge building & gorge walking and in the Cairngorm Mountain range skiing & snowboarding are available in season.

    Fast pace action isn't for everyone, and for those who want a relaxing tour of the area, take a cruise on Loch Ness, a dolphin-spotting boat trip on the Moray Firth or a glass blowing experience at a nearby studio. Golfers are spoilt for choice with the wide range of championship courses in the area including Spey Valley, Moray & Royal Dornoch. Whisky lovers can take a tasting tour of a local distillery or an in-house whisky experience, tailored to suit your level of expertise by a malt connoisseur.

    Back at the lodge, the spa has a sauna, hot tub & spa treatment menu including massages, facials and pedicures. For souvenirs, pop down to the village of Beauly which has a wonderful selection of privately-owned shops selling jewellery, clothing, food and much more.
