Visited Fiddler's for dinner during recent stay in Drumnadrochit. Was hoping it would be warm and cosy inside as it was pretty cold outside, but was disappointed to find it was only slightly warmer inside! Lots of tables squeezed into a fairly small space. We only had main courses, quality of food was average. Kids menu was limited to 3... More

The food here is great, and the service was possibly the best I've experienced. Happy, welcoming, nothing too much trouble - the staff took a genuine pleasure in serving good local food in both the restaurant and from the food truck.

Read about this place in the Lonely Planet guide. The staff were lovely however was sadly unimpressed with the food. There wasn't much in terms of vegetarian options. The chips weren't seasoned and the seafood platter was quite small so unfortunately we wouldn't go back.

Called in by pure chance. Excellent food and service. Down by shore of Loch ness. Plenty of parking across the road. It was packed but staff kindly got us a good table. Sun was beaming through the windows. Lots of whiskeys on offer including Japanese? old style decor. Previously would always pass by on way from Fort william to Inverness.... More

This is our favourite local haunt and last night they opened a wee bar beside the (excellent) restaurant!! Outside was the Fiddler's Food van. The food was delicious, the ale so tasty(try Happy Chappy!!) and the raconteur owner, Jonny was amusing and interesting.(Ask anything about whiskey!) If you make it to this part of the world you must stop here... More
