We went to the restaurant for an early dinner. I was not expecting the high standard of food that arrived at our table. The waitress was really friendly and accommodating to our two year old daughter. Will definitely be visiting again.

When you travel alot and stay in 4 and 5 star hotels that become very clinical after a while, all looking the same with 0 atmosphere. The Gun Lodge is a welcome surprise. I wanted somewhere close to the airport and was disappointed at first that none of the familiar chain hotels showed up. I booked the Gun Lodge because...

Stayed one night (bed and breakfast) after attending a wedding in the village. Early check in at no extra cost so that we could get organised before the wedding. Sheena, the owner, was very welcoming and could not have been more attentive during breakfast. Our room was clean and well appointed, if a little dated, but this added to the...

Was up on business, chose the Gun Lodge over a pricier hotel in Inverness. Will do so again. Local fish and chips for dinner. Great breakfast. Sheena and her team do a great job. Atmosphere in the bar friendly for a single traveller.

A little off the beaten track but well worth the trip. Near to Inverness airport and serving delicious freshly prepared food using local produce at a very reasonable price. I've sampled most of the menu items here and never been disappointed. Personal favourites have been the calamari and the lamb casserole. The fish and chips is also excellent. I can't...
