Inverlochy Castle is one of Scotland's finest historic hotels. The castle is uniquely located amongst the glens, lochs and mountains of the West Highlands of Scotland, yet only 3 miles from the bustling town of Fort William. Inverlochy was built in 1863 by the first Lord Abinger, near the site of the original 13th century fortress. In September 1873 during a trip to Balmoral, Queen Victoria spent a week at Inverlochy sketching and painting where she wrote in her diaries 'I never saw a lovelier or more romantic spot'. Inverlochy had been a private residence for over a hundred years until 1969 when it was converted from a family home to Scotland's finest country house hotel. Particular emphasis has been placed on marrying the elegant surroundings and atmosphere of the hotel, with a warm welcome and friendly, efficient service. At Inverlochy you will experience one of the most relaxing and exciting vacations of a lifetime, where every detail for your comfort and enjoyment has been carefully considered.
