Aultbea Hotel

Aultbea Hotel

Eight en-suite bedrooms, restaurant, lounge bar and public bar. Overlooks Loch Ewe at Aultbea 

Situated on the shores of beautiful Loch Ewe, the Aultbea Hotel and Restaurant is the perfect location from which to explore the north-west highlands of Scotland. Inverewe Gardens, Gruinard Bay, the Torridon mountains and the Benn Eighe nature reserve are all nearby, offering a wealth of beautiful mountains, beaches and breathtaking scenery. Walking, climbing, fishing and golf are all available or, for the less energetic, the picturesque and peaceful setting of Aultbea village itself is second to none.

Our 8 bedrooms have en-suite facilities, king-size beds, colour TV, direct-dial telephone, clock radio, hair-dryer, trouser press and tea and coffee making facilities. Our superior rooms have a spectacular outlook over the loch. Sample our excellent food in the Lounge Bar (for more casual dining) or experience the intimate atmosphere of the Zetland Restaurant overlooking the Isle of Ewe for a dining experience to remember. Finish off the evening with a night-cap in our cosy Lounge Bar or meet the locals in the Public Bar with live entertainment most Saturday nights.

Prices:  Bed and breakfast available from £42 per person per night.
Children welcome. Special offers available. Please contact the hotel for further information.
