The Lovat is a perfect bolthole for your Scottish Highlands break.


The Lovat hotel and restaurant is in the heart of the picturesque and busy village of Fort Augustus right by the side of the magnificent and magical Loch Ness and in the midst of some stunning Scotland highland scenery. This is easily accessible at around 1 hour's drive from Inverness airport or around 3 hours drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh. This hotel has been refurbished and designed with romance in mind, providing exquisite accommodation with contemporary features which complement the traditional Victorian architecture and the award winning 2 Rosette restaurant is perfect for your romantic dinner for two.

Fort Augustus is a great central location, and is a great calling point when en route to Loch Ness, Inverness, and the western Isles such as Skye and the Hebrides. The awesome Ben Nevis is just an hour away as well and the spectacular scenery of the Cairngorms National park. The drive to Skye from Fort Augustus , in itself is a truly memorable experience- here the landscape colours and silhouettes change around each corner, and each viewing point provides yet another panoramic view of this dynamic terrain.

There is plenty to do on the door step: such as sailing trips around the Loch and along the canal; mountain or canal side walks; fishing and golf as well as visits to traditional pubs and quirky craft shops and galleries nearby.

The Lovat is an eco conscious award winning hotel, aiming to provide you with the friendliest of service for your special break away, and providing contemporary sumptuous accommodation as well as a romantic dining experience. Rooms are graded from External Studio, Deluxe, Super Deluxe, Master & Grand Master with the rates reflecting the size, décor and facilities. Some have amazing panoramic views of the surrounding scenery such as the Loch, the historical 5 lock Caledonian Canal, and the mountains.

The Lovat Brasserie offers a romantic dining experience, with a cool ambience and quieter alcoves for your special dinner for two, there is also an open plan dining area by the bar for a more vibrant dining experience.  Here the Head Chef and his team are passionate about using the best of local produce  such as catch of the day salmon and locally reared Highland lamb, served with a creative twist.

The Lovat has been named as a top 20 UK destination by the Good Hotel Guide 2010 and whether you stay here for a night's stop over or stay as a home from home to relax, unwind and explore, your time at the Lovat will be a most memorable one.
