B&B Accommodation in Invermoriston for Great Glen Way Walkers
Adjacent to the Great Glen Way
Self Contained Accommodation
5 mins walk from Hotel and Shop
When planning your stages, Invermoriston is a natural choice for Great Glen Way accommodation as it is the main population centre on the Great Glen Way between Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit. See our Accommodation page for what we have to offer. We are always pleased to see walkers. Each Studio has its own kitchen and B&B guests have use of the microwave, toaster and fridge included. Full cooking facilities are available for an additional charge of £5 per night to B&B guests; these are always available to self catering guests. Our in room "Breakfast Basket" option means that you can leave as early as you like without waiting for dining room times. We will also prepare packed lunches for you on request. We don't normally do meals but we can provide an evening meal for walkers in the winter when the Hotel is closed by prior arrangement. Invermoriston has a Post Office/shop and the Glenmoriston Arms Hotel which has a Restaurant, both within 400m of Lann Dearg.
Great Glen Way Route Planning When you are planning the stages of your walk you will find Great Glen Way accommodation on the route itself at South Laggan, Fort Augustus and Invermoriston. Depending on your ability, you may find that South Laggan to Invermoriston is a bit too far and decide to stop over at Fort Augustus. This leaves a relatively short next stage to Invermoriston with no other accommodation centre before Drumnadrochit. This is a pleasant walk mostly on forest track with some open views of Loch Ness along the way. The route out of Invermoriston climbs behind the Glenmoriston Arms on a metalled road with several hairpin bends to gain a height of about 200m before joining the forest track. See our Virtual Walk page for an idea of this route as far as the Stone Seat viewpoint above Loch Ness.
In 2008 a new link path was introduced between the forest track and the Dalcataig road that has shortened the stage from Fort Augustus to Invermoriston by nearly 2 miles. This makes the walk from Fort Augustus to here quite short at under 7 miles and you may consider extending the stage and continuing to Alt Sigh which is a further 4 miles. Just book in as you pass the door and walk on to Alt Sigh at OS Grid Ref 458 191, where access to the A82 is only a short diversion from the track. We will pick you up there and take you back the next morning. You might also consider spending the morning in Fort Augustus rather than coming straight on to Invermoriston as there is more to do there, a boat trip for example.
If you would like to stay 2 nights with us and we will pick up between Laggan and Drumnadrochit. Or why not plan a rest day. There is a bus service within 400m that will take you on an excursion to the Kyle of Lochalsh and the Isle of Skye if you want a break from walking and take in the spectacular scenery through Glenmoriston and Glen Shiel without lifting a boot.
When to Come? We will be pleased to see you at any time but we think that April, May and October can be really nice in the Highlands and should not be discounted. Although the days are a bit shorter, these months produce some spectacularly clear conditions with a real alpine quality to the air and temperatures that are just right for walking. Plus the midges are not a nuisance. The autumn colours are well worth waiting for and are at their best in mid to late October. But please don't blame us if it rains, the good news is that it can be wet at Fort Augustus and sunny at Invermoriston.
The Great Glen Way passes our door just before Invermoriston.
Finding Us (walking from Fort Augustus)
You will see a GGW waymark on the track above Invermoriston leading on to a steep path through the trees descending to the Dalcataig Road. Turn right and you will pass our door in about 300m in sight of the old Telford bridge over the river Moriston.
We are located at OS grid reference 418 165.

Do you know about the Friends of the Great Glen Way? We are a "Friend" and you can become one and get a discount card for services along the Way. More on the GGW Official web site. Look for the red star in the Accommodation List.
Arrival Time The GGW route was shortened in 2008 so that the walking distance from Fort Augustus to Lann Dearg is quite short at approximately 6-7 miles. This means that if you start after breakfast, you will arrive in Invermoriston by lunch time. We have to prepare the Studios for you and are not always ready by that time. There is more to do and see in Fort Augustus than Invermoriston so we suggest that you could have a "lazy" morning before starting the walk and aim to arrive mid afternoon.
