On the shores of Loch Ness this pub serves delicious inexpensive food and ale, both with a smile! Very pleasant inn with outdoor seating (the weather allowing) and a view of the sun setting over the Loch. Memorable!

Probably my favourite place on Loch Ness side. Beautiful place to relax on a summer afternoon. Food is fine and the service is good with pleasant staff. Toilets need a bit of an upgrade but5 are usually clean.

Hard to tell. There is not too much room inside because it is an old house. I guess it also depends on the size of the dog. It could work if you book a table in a corner. Or consult the patrons first.
