OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Nestled within the stunning landscapes of Glen Shiel alongside the road to Skye in the northwest highlands, majestic green mountains tower on either side. Adjacent to Loch Cluanie, it's a two-hour drive from the bustle of Fort William or Inverness, but that's the point: it's a haven of tranquillity. River rafting, gorge walking, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, abseiling, and white water rafting are all possible nearby.

By car: around 4 hours from Edinburgh, 7 hours from Manchester and 8 hours from Birmingham. Free parking on-site.

By plane: direct flights from London, Manchester or Birmingham to Inverness. It's an hour and 20 minutes' drive to the hotel. Book flights to Inverness.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

With its wooden or slate floors, half-wood-panelled walls, earthy paint colours, fabric wallpapers, antique furniture and tartan accents, it's clear a lot of care has been put into making this a homely Scottish lodging. Tapestries, paintings and displayed china add to the character.

THE FACILITIES

Despite arriving very late after a long drive from one end of the UK to the other, the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Always attentive, they were ready with advice of where to go and what to do. The comfortable lounge area is peppered with inviting books, games and magazines.

FOOD AND DRINK

There's a small, homely breakfast room next to the inn's Cluanie Bar and Kitchen, with windows overlooking the nearby mountain ranges. The evening restaurant area is a bit gloomy and threadbare but the menu caters for all tastes. As well as Scottish specials such as haggis, neeps and tatties, there are burgers, steaks, pizzas, and even Middle Eastern, Asian, and Indian dishes, all of a high standard.

Cluanie Bar & Kitchen: classic cuisine. Mains include Scottish beef stew, fish & chips and barbecue pork ribs. All-day dining, open daily.
