The Dores Inn

The Dores Inn
Enjoy the spectacular view down Loch Ness.

A more welcome sight you will never see. As you approach Dores from Inverness, the first thing you see is a spectacular view of Loch Ness, and the second, as you near Loch Ness, is The Dores Inn situated on the shore of the Loch. 

On a cold day you can relax by the cosy log fire and enjoy lunch or dinner from a varied menu of home cooked food. On a nice day you can  sit out by Loch Ness, with a wee dram to catch a glimpse of the elusive Nessie or more likely, just to see the beautiful loch view followed perhaps by a stroll along Dores beach. It is advisable to book in advance for meals, as the restaurant is very popular and consequently does get full up. Large selection of Malt whiskies and fine wines available.
