A wonderful meal. The menu is very well designed and is put together with care and intelligence by the chef. Each meal is full of surprises and wonderful flavours. The service was even better, the team really looked after us- thank-you.

The Lovat Brasserie served some of the finest food that we tasted during our two-week tour of Scotland and should not be missed whether staying at the Lovat Loch Ness Hotel or somewhere else in Fort Augustus, or just passing through. The setting is upscale,...More

Decided to find a place for breakfast in town and this was at the top of the list. Very nicely decorated and the service was great. Food was of no disappointment. I am planning to go there again.

This is not a cheap night out but well worth every penny - save room for dessert as these are AMAZING!

This should have at least one Michelin Star. The food was beautiful. Everything was presented in the most artistic way. I had the Duck and liver parfait- I could have just had that with the delicious bread they served- then I had venison- it was...More

Thanks for your question - the hotel opens from 6am and breakfast is served 7:30 - 9:30am (8:00 - 10:00am Sunday) and we are more than happy to offer continental breakfast before this time on request.
