About the Hotel

Inverlochy Castle sits amidst some of Scotland's finest scenery, at the foot of the majestic Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the UK. Visitors to this iconic region can expect an outstanding stay with stunning views and sumptuous dining.


Each of the 17 bedrooms and suites has its own individual design and character along with spectacular views of the grounds and private loch. The two-bedroom Gate Lodge is situated at the entrance of the hotel and offers similar luxury to the hotel with added privacy.


Dining at 'Seasgair' by Michel Roux Jr. is a culinary experience, offering the finest dishes using hyperlocal produce including foods from producers neighbouring the castle that aren't available anywhere else. When dining with us you can expect canapes and dishes prepared in front of you, with sharing platters and showpieces presented on traditional silver, fine bone china and crockery crafted by local potters. Some dishes will be presented as an entirety, served up at table rather than plated, in a nod to how Inverlochy Castle's first cook, Mary Shaw, preferred to serve. Mary was the Castle's cook when it was run as a private home, and each evening she would serve a completely new menu for the family and guests to enjoy together. 

Daytime Activities 

Inverlochy Castle Hotel is situated in Lochaber, the Outdoor Capital of the UK. Take advantage of the stunning location and experience some of the exciting activities they can arrange for you. Or why not spend a day visiting Loch Ness or taking a day trip to the Isle of Skye.
