Fodor's Expert Review Inverlochy Castle Hotel

Off A82, Fort William, Highland, PH33 6SN, Scotland

A red-granite mansion turned luxury boutique hotel, Inverlochy Castle stands on 50 acres of woodlands in the shadow of Ben Nevis, with striking scenery on every side. Dating from 1863, the hotel retains 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 stunning restaurant, run by Michel Roux Jr., serves local specialties like Aberdeen Angus beef, sea trout, and scallops. This is a place where you dress for dinner, and men are required to wear a jacket. The hotel is 3 miles northeast of Fort William.
