Welcome To Glenmoriston Arms Hotel


HotelThe original hotel built on this site dates back to 1740, 6 years before the battle of Culloden when the building was originally a drover’s inn, a stop-over point for farmers taking their cattle to and from market. Surprisingly some of this original structure remains in place today forming the Moriston bar and also the reception area with granite walls 3-4 feet thick. Glenmoriston Arms has carved itself into the history of Loch Ness as being the meeting place for Johnson & Boswell when they charted their historic journey to the Hebrides. It was also a favourite haunt for Charlie Chaplin in the 1930’s when actors and actresses of the time wanted a little peace and relaxation in the Highlands. Gavin Maxwell, author of  “Ring of bright water” stayed here whilst he finished his book, and returned a few years later accompanied by Princess Margaret who was presenting him with an award. so, you will certainly be amongst good company staying here.
