The Lovat is a beautiful old house, in a great location in the centre of Fort Augustus, so very easy to get to if arriving by car from Inverness airport as we did. My wife and I visited in September 2016 for our anniversary, and everything about our stay was fantastic: the staff were friendly, welcoming, informal yet utterly professional,...

This is a good comfortable hotel. The rooms are of a good standard and spotlessly clean. It is an older building and the rooms have been modernised to provide en-suite facilities in a sympathetic way. I have not seen a non-wide screen TV for some years, but this did not distract from the charm of this hotel. Service was brilliant!...

Very comfortable hotel, friendly but professional. Would recommend it. Room was spacious and well fitted although bed a bit high - almost needed a ladder to get in - good food for breakfast and dinners and comfortable lounge to relax after dinner

What a pleasure to arrive at the Lovat while cycling the Great Glen way last summer. The room was clean, comfortable and modern. The hotel is incredibly well-run with so much pride of ownership and attention to detail. Fort Augustus is beautiful and the food at the Lovat was outstanding! I enjoyed every moment of my stay.

This was our third stay at The Lovat and for good reason. Every time we visit Scotland we simply have to visit Fort Augustus and take a trip on Loch Ness. The Lovat provides a warm and relaxing atmosphere, welcoming staff and sumptuous food. It is quite simply my idea of heaven.
