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.

 We stayed here in october 2012 for our honeymoon, and it was a most enjoyable experience, we were made very welcome as soon as we stepped in through the door, nothing was too much trouble, it was a very friendly hotel, and the food was to die for. we booked again for this year, to return on our anniversary in the same room ( four poster with jacuzzi ) only to find that the bed had been decorated with rose petals and swans, and a bottle of wine. and on our day, a special meal had been done for us by the chef, of which we awarded him 2 kevin stars (our mitchelin rating) i cannot rate this hotel highly enough. and have booked again for 2014. and hope to do so for all the following years. so to Ailsa and team a great big thank you xxx


Just returned from a great walk along the Great Glen Way. Stopped off at Glenmoriston for the one night. Wished to stay here as had eaten here on previous GGW walk and we were not disappointed. Received a really good welcome from all Staff and enjoyed a wonderful Massage from Elaine, brilliant for tired legs/shoulders. Walkers make sure you use this service, you will wish it was available at each hotel! Food was excellent and Log Fire in Lounge is a real boost. We definately hope to be back.
