Balachladaich Loch Ness B&B

Telephone: 01463 751300


If you fancy a paddle or swim in the famous waters of Loch Ness, you just need to walk a few meters to the water's edge. We may also have some rock shoes which will help you get in to the water without slipping.  We have a drying room where you can also dry clothes if you have been out in less favourable weather. 

We can provide a basic packed lunch, great for taking with you if you're going walking or cycling for the day. £7 per person. Please order at least the night before.

If you wish to use our kettle barbeque on the beach, go ahead! You will find food and charcoal at our nearest Tesco supermarket, which is 10 minutes away, or the Dores Inn has been known to supply raw burgers for our guests to cook. You can find paper plates, cutlery and bin bags in the dining area. Please put the cutlery in the dishwasher and the dispose of your rubbish.

We do not offer evening meals. The nearest restaurant is the Dores Inn, 1 mile away. This is a popular pub, and the restaurant gets very busy at weekends and throughout the summer, so we advise you book in advance. You can contact them on 01463 751203 or You can walk there (please be aware that it is a quiet road, but there are no sidewalks or street lights), but they also provide a shuttle service so you do not have to drive. The shuttle service must be booked with The Dores Inn when you reserve a table. 

Alternatively, we are lucky to have some excellent restaurants in Inverness, which is only a 15 minute drive from Balachladaich. We would certainly recommend The Rockpool, The Mustard Seed, Hou Hou Mei, The Kitchen, Riverside Cafe or Cafe 1, but there is something to suit all tastes.

We do not have a licence to sell alcohol, but are happy to supply you with corkscrews and glasses if you bring your own!
