This 300-year-old former manse is a popular, friendly village inn near Loch Ness, catering for locals and visitors. The 400 year old sweet chestnut outside was once a hanging tree. Six handpumps dispense ales from their own Hanging Tree Brewery in a bothy in the garden, with others in rotation from Scottish and UK breweries. Good whisky selection. Very good homemade simple classic food using locally sourced produce. Breakfast served to 10.00. Pool table and darts board. Dogs are allowed in the bar only. Entertainment includes live music once a fortnight and occasional quiz nights. Home of the famous Loch Ness Beer Festival in September. Handy for all the Loch Ness attractions including Urquhart Castle and central for touring the Highlands.
