Details

Just 8 miles from Inverness, Dores is a peaceful village with iconic views down Loch Ness. Balachladaich means ‘Rocky Shore’ in Gaelic, which gives you an idea of how close you are to the mysterious waters of Loch Ness. We are a new, purpose built Bed & Breakfast, with direct access from the house straight to the beach, only meters away. Our 4 luxurious guest rooms have en suite bathrooms and private loch facing balconies (1st floor) or decking areas (ground floor), offering a tranquil space for you to enjoy a relaxing break.

We have 2 double rooms, a family room and a room which can be made up as a twin or a superking sized double. The décor of the rooms is inspired by the nature that surrounds us. Soft furnishings and art are created from Harris tweeds in heathery purples, slate blues and mossy greens.

We have a good breakfast selection which varies daily. From the buffet you can select home made granola as well as other cereals, fruit, yoghurt and toast with homemade preserves. If you prefer a hot breakfast, you can choose from traditional porridge or a hearty full Scottish breakfast (vegetarian options available), sourced as locally as possible. Our hot daily special changes daily, but could be something like kipper and horseradish fishcakes, eggs benedict or brioche with marmalade syrup. The glass frontage of our building ensuires a light and airy breakfast area with a view to die for.

Whether you arrive by car, by bike, by foot or by canoe, you can be assured of a warm welcome at Balachladaich.

    Directions to Balachladaich by Public Transport

    We advise guests to hire a car if possible, as there is so much in the area which is easier to access by car. However, if you want to come by public transport, you would need to get a No. 16 bus from Queensgate in Inverness (timetable here). This will take you out to the village of Dores. We are one mile beyond Dores on the right - ask the bus driver nicely and he will stop to let you off at our house.

    If you have arrived at the airport, there is a bus service in to the city every half hour. When you get off in Inverness, as the driver to point you in the direction of Queensgate, where the No 16 bus leaves from - its just across the road.

    As you reach the south side of the city, before you cross over the river Ness, you will see signs for B862 and Dores at the Shore Street Roundabout. Follow these signs all the way to Dores (about 8 miles).

    Once you reach the village you will pass the Dores Inn on the right hand side and soon after the road forks. Take the right hand fork following the loch side, signposted B852 Foyers and Inverfarigaig. Continue for 1 mile and you will see us on the right.

    Stay on this road and go straight over the next 6 roundabouts. This road goes right round the outside of Inverness to Loch Ness and ends on the B862. At this roundabout turn left onto the B862 and follow this road all the way to Dores.
