One of only 3 Cask Marque accredited real ale pubs in Inverness-shire
Nestling in the picturesque highland country village of Roy Bridge, 10 miles from Fort William (the Outdoor Capital of the UK), in the very heart of Lochaber in the highlands of Scotland, is a quite delightful little authentic Scottish country inn style hotel.
Enjoy everything you might expect from a highland hotel and don’t often get – open all day, all year except January, all day food, roaring log fires, a choice of lovely, spotless budget, standard and superior family friendly en suite hotel accommodation – scrumptious, simple cuisine cooked with skill and passion – and a mouth watering array of beverages, cask (real) ales (CAMRA and Cask Marque accredited), over 80 Scotch malts - as well as having its own very special brand of warm welcoming hospitality.
This is the Stronlossit experience - you’ll discover a magical, welcoming to all, cosy little inn in the country and, emphatically, without the stuffiness of a country house hotel. There’s none of that snooty nostalgic stuff here – just good old fashioned Scottish hospitality.
Morning coffee and afternoon tea
We are opoen all day every day, for that important cuppa, with a delightful selections of tablets, shortbreads and other home baked goodies for you to savour. Speciality teas, and freshly ground speciality coffees too, with local supplier Caber Coffee giving the more popular names like Costa a real run for their money.
The ideal surroundings during the day to meet a colleague for an informal ‘meeting on the move’, or a coffee with friend - or perhaps an opportunity to chill out and read the papers. In the evening, there is a real highland buzz about the bar, with our hotel guests and locals being complemented by many visiting climbers, hill walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts often staying in the local bunkhouses,. B and B and self catering accommodation.
