We really love staying at Glengarry Castle Hotel. One of these days, we'll book in for more than one night. This hotel was recommended to us over twenty years ago by a very discerning lady who ran a B&B set in a charming Georgian house in Co. Waterford. She loved Glengarry Castle because, for her, it was quintessentially Scottish........and it took dogs.

Years later, needing an overnight stay on our way to Skye, we reserved DB&B, and we have been returning ever since.

Glengarry Castle Hotel is so comfortable, warm and friendly. Within a very short time of arriving it is easy to feel relaxed and at home. The tremendous staff must take credit for this, as their welcome and great service are major contributors to its sustained success.

The rooms are furnished in a traditional style which appeals. They are extremely comfortable, impeccably clean, and equipped with excellent facilities. All one has to do is unpack, relax in the beautifully deep bath, and leave the world outside.

The dining room is gorgeous. It is simply and tastefully furnished with, what I would call, 'clean lines'. Once again, the staff are attentive and efficient, and the food is excellent. The wine list is extensive enough, and reasonably priced. Coffee and petit fours are served in either of the two lounges (dogs not permitted - but they are allowed in the main hall where there is seating - for the humans!). So the evening comes to a close with easy conversation and a single malt.

The grounds are great, with paths leading down to the loch or to the old castle ruins. They are a highlight either during the early part of the evening, or early morning.

It is the following morning's walk which constitutes the end of our stay, and which makes us ever more determined to return.

Room Tip: Each time we have visited this hotel, we have stayed in a different room, with different views. Every room has been a delight. The hotel is in its own wonderful, peaceful grounds, so it doesn't really matter which room you are given.

Luxuriating in a 1970s time warp from the decor to the food.
Absolutely wonderful.
The staff are excellent and the dining experience was straight out of a Scottish country house cook book.
The whole hotel is clean and very comfortable.

Room Tip: When booking make sure you speak to the receptionist and tell them what you like and let them choose your room; you want be disappointed.

Can it get better? My wife and I stayed in a standard double for two nights in late July and opted for full board in an effort to make it easy. Not sure the small town of Invergarry has an eatery and other towns along the lochs are a ways away. I agree with the other positive reviews of Glengarry and would like to add a few things.

First, the desk and other staff are super nice and attentive - and we are Americans. BTW, why do some other Americans classify themselves as obnoxious or 'unclassy'? The Scots seem genuinely very happy with Americans, at least that has always been our experience. Stay classy, Americans!

Anyway, this property was built in 1869 and turned into a hotel a while back. It is a beautiful and unique property on Loch Oich, one of the smaller lochs along the Caledonian Canal. Our room was nicely appointed, very comfortable, located on the first floor (main floor being zero) with a view of the loch, and included a big tub with separate shower.

Both dinners were really very very good - and we tried everything possible including the Haggis appetizer! The wait staff was so nice and professional!! After dinner a drink in the very comfortable library after a walk along the river made for a wonderful end to the day. Breakfast was also very good and complete on both mornings served once again by a wonderful wait staff. The grounds are nicely kept, the loch is beautiful and there are many wonderful easy walks, including the old castle and along the Loch Oich.

Some helpful information: the property is a little over an hour from Inverness airport. Simple to find Invergarry - A96 to Inverness then A82 to Fort William. Petrol gets progressively more expensive toward the Isle of Skye. We thought we saw Nessie, which was cool but of course expected. Don't know what one of the reviewers was talking about relative to poor signage. Main entrance is a little less than a mile past Invergarry with three progressive signs. We look forward to staying here again! Which only means we loved it because why would anyone stay anywhere twice when there are so many places to explore!!

Fantastic value for a wonderfully quaint, off the beaten path hotel. Would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling in the Highlands. We went after touring Loch Ness and couldn't have been happier with it! Can't wait to go back!

Man, I wish there hadn't been three of us--I really wanted to use that tub. It's one of those long and deep ones with the faucets in the middle that you could soak in for hours. Alas, my travel-mates were wanting to also use the bathroom.

The rooms have room to move around in and the beds were comfortable. The pillows were divine. The television offered movies but we weren't allowed to order any.

The rooms were clean, and a guy named Alex helped us carry our stuff up the stairs. We weren't sure what the tipping procedure was and we hadn't expected that so we didn't take any cash so we should probably send him a card in the mail.

The woman at the desk must not have been having the best day. She was professional but she gave us the, "You uncultured American tourist" look the moment we walked in the door. She was friendlier in the morning so she likely was just having a bad day.

The grounds are beautiful. I would highly suggest taking a walk around the grounds while there is still light outside.

The food was a bit pricey for what we got and wasn't all that great. I had the duck breast which was extremely small and the port cherries were 100% alcohol. The bread wasn't my favorite, either. We didn't order any alcohol because the prices were a bit high for us and the meal was already costing us L34 (about $70). The breakfast was okay and was small, also.

Overall it was a good place and we don't regret the experience. It was just a little pricey for what we got.
