A red-granite Victorian mansion, Inverlochy Castle stands on 50 acres of woodlands in the shadow of Ben Nevis, with striking scenery visible on every side. Dating from 1863, the hotel retains all the splendor of its period, with a fine fresco ceiling, crystal chandeliers, and a handsome staircase in the Great Hall. The bedrooms, traditional in style, are plush and comfortable. The restaurant serves local specialties like Aberdeen Angus beef with white asparagus. This is a place where you dress for dinner, and men must wear jacket and tie. The hotel is 3 miles northeast of Fort William.
