Boathouse Restaurant

On-site Restaurant

The Boat House Restaurant is within the grounds of the Highland Club and boasts beautiful views of Loch Ness.

Once the original Boat House in the days of the Fort, it is now a family friendly restaurant. Offering a  menu of traditional Scottish meals with a Turkish twist, the Boat House firmly has its place as a major part of the Highland Club facilities.

This warm and inviting restaurant has friendly, helpful staff who are happy to make sure you enjoy your meal. There is a range of beers on tap, an extensive wine menu and excellent soft drinks.

You can sit inside and enjoy the stunning views knowing you are sitting a few feet above the famous Loch Ness. Alternatively, you can make use of the outdoor table and seating facilities.

Either way, we are sure you will be so happy you will want to return again and again!

The View

Of the many unique characteristics of the Boat House, most striking is the view of Loch Ness.

In particular, watching while the boats pass peacefully by with the Great Glen and South Loch Ness trail in the background is simply stunning!

Fans of wildlife can enjoy seeing swans and families of ducks swimming happily by, while canoes and kayaks paddle past.

Additionally, it doesn’t seem too matter how the weather is. This charming restaurant just adds to the delightful time our guests enjoy at The Highland Club.

The Experience of the Boat House

The Boat House Restaurant is within short walking distance from anywhere in The Highland Club.

Located between the Monastery Gardens and the foot of Loch Ness, the Boat House invites you in. Then as you enter, one of the friendly faces of the waiting staff, the manager or the owner will welcome you.
