About The Inn

The Inn

There has been an inn here for hundreds of years and like all Highland inns the welcome is warm and genuine. The oldest part of the inn is formed from the ferrymen's cottages built to replace those burned down by Hanoverian troopers from Fort William in 1746.

Every bedroom of the Inn takes advantage of the spectacular mountain-framed view. From your bedroom window you can watch the Corran Ferry ply back and forth across Loch Linnhe with its half-hourly load of vehicles of every size and type. The whole length of the loch is in view as far as Corpach, the entrance to the great Caledonian Canal. The water traffic is facinatingly varied; small work boats servicing the local fish farm; local prawn boats; yachts from Scotland and Europe, cruise boats like Hebridean Princess or Scotland's last working paddle steamer Waverley. the endlessly changing scene is as interesting as it is beautiful.

Their travel company is always keen to obtain feedback on how their customers enjoy their holiday and, in particular, their accommodation.
