This beautiful 18th century pine-panelled Victorian mansion house is situated in its own grounds overlooking Loch Shiel, Ben Nevis and the Glenfinnan Monument marking the spot where Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised the standard at the commencement of the 1745 Jacobite Rising.

The present owners, the MacFarlane family, came to Glenfinnan in 1971 by which time the house was in an advanced state of disrepair. They converted the house into an hotel whilst attempting to retain as much of its old character as possible. In 2003, they appointed award winning chef Duncan Gibson and his wife Manja formerly of Arisaig House.

There are lots of reasons why you shouldn't miss a visit to this fabulous place. The scenery and views are stunning and this is a perfect venue for the Chef's classic French training to shine through, for example in the pan-fried fillet of Scottish beef. The Chef particularly enjoys creating speciality signature dishes using local produce and there’s a fine choice of Scottish cheeses. Later, enjoy a dram or coffee in the drawing room, hall or the cosy bar.
