We visited Fort Augustus as a group of 6, whilst sailing across Loch Ness celebrating my parents 60th birthdays. We booked for dinner last minute and was pleased they could accommodate such a large party for an early dinner booked for 6pm. The restaurant was...More

We had a great time in Scotland and loved the food. But this restaurant was by far the best. We had great sea bass, risotto and lamb. Wines we delicious and so were the deserts. I can highly recommend the place!

Great menu and fantastic service - we stayed nearby for a week but ate at The Lovat three evenings! Our dog was also made very welcome.

We had dinner (twice) and breakfast (thrice) here. The food is very good and prices are quite reasonable. The staff were friendly and obliging. The brasserie was quite busy at dinner, so a reservation is necessary.

Many thanks for your online feedback and I am also ‘very disappointed’ that we were unable to offer you the service and food quality you expected. Personally we believe there was a breakdown in communication on the night as we were unaware of you finding...More

My husband and I ate here both nights when we stayed in Fort Augustus. The menu changed slightly each day. The starters were wonderful and the soups were light and delicious. The main were good but the desserts were spectacular!

Nice menu and good food. Not sure it goes down well to be told you only have a limited time for the table, especially when you are a hotel guest. Waiting staff were attentive.

As far as we can remember, it was allowing well-behaved dogs on leads. We think there was a dog lying quietly under a table whilst we were there.
