The Inver Lodge Hotel, in Lochinver, is a luxury 4-star hotel in the Highlands of Scotland. Its setting is simply stunning, taking in sea, loch and panoramic Highland landscape views. Situated on a hillside in the rugged Scottish Highlands, Inver Lodge Hotel looks across the clear waters of Loch Inver to the distant Western Isles.
For walkers, anglers and bird-watchers, or for anyone wishing to escape a busy lifestyle, Inver Lodge Hotel provides a special retreat. Red and roe deer graze the hotel grounds; golden eagles grace the skies; the flash of leaping salmon and darting brown trout can be seen in the rivers and lochs; and Atlantic seals play in the harbour.
Sit by the roaring log fire in the foyer lounge and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea, or sample regional malt whiskies, including the hotel’s special blend, in the library-style bar. Come evening, savour outstanding cuisine created using the finest Scottish produce in Inver Lodge Hotel’s award-winning Restaurant.
Inver Lodge Hotel is just a two hour drive from Inverness Airport, with flights from London taking only one and a half hours. Inver Lodge, Lochinver, is just 35 miles from Ullapool harbour and 45 miles from Lairg Station.

The Restaurant serves some of the finest cuisine in the Highlands, but with its huge windows, offers diners panoramic views over Loch Inver and the surrounding countryside. Imaginative menus feature freshly caught fish, lobster and salmon, as well as Highland venison, lamb and Angus beef. For the ultimate Roux experience, we recommend you start with the Albert Roux soufflé suissesse, where cheese is used to glaze the soufflé rather than incorporated into the mixture. There is no escaping the chef's speciality fish of the day for a main course. And round it off with a classic caramelised lemon tart. A separate vegetarian menu is available on request.
Please reserve a table for dinner in advance.
Don’t miss the opportunity to indulge in afternoon tea whilst staying in this glorious setting – savour homemade scones with fruit preserve and cream, sandwiches, cakes and a pot of tea. Both traditional afternoon tea and champagne afternoon tea are available to order and can be enjoyed in the foyer lounge sitting comfortably by the Scots pine fireplace. Afternoon tea can be booked in advance, at a special price, when booking your room via classicbritishhotels.com.
Gently unwind in the sauna before enjoying a full body massage using a range of different techniques including Swedish massage. Holistic therapies such as the Bowen technique – applying very gentle pressure to stimulate the muscles and soft tissue – are also available.
The wild, unspoilt landscape of Lochinver offers an abundance of outdoor activities. The area is particularly renowned for its fishing and Inver Lodge has salmon fishing permits for two of the most beautiful West Highland rivers, the Inver and Kirkaig. It also has access to salmon fishing on the renowned River Oykel. Those who prefer to seek out wild brown trout will find the hotel a superb base. In addition, the hotel has four rowing boats for hire at £10 per day.

The Highlands is home to spectacular landscapes and raw nature at its best – mountains and moorland, rivers and lochs, and, of course, waterfalls. Over three times as high as Niagara Falls, Britain’s highest waterfall spills from a high plateau, plunging 200 metres (658 feet) over a cliffside to the shore of Loch Glencoul. Also known as Eas Coul Aulin, the original Scottish Gaelic translates as ‘waterfall of the beautiful tresses’ and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Care should be taken near the falls as this area is very dangerous.
