About The Old North Inn

Surrounded by trees in the small village of Inchmore, this cosy coaching inn in a heritage building is found seven miles from historic Inverness. Traditional on-site dining and a warm, welcoming atmosphere are the hallmarks of The Old North Inn. Subdued guest rooms with carpeted floors and homely decor provide private bathrooms with complimentary toiletries. Flat-screen TVs and refreshment trays also feature, and some rooms have work desks. Guests can play pool and take advantage of freely accessible Wi-Fi during their stay. Complimentary parking is offered, too. Guests can savour Highland cuisine made with locally-sourced ingredients in a convivial restaurant area replete with open fireplace. There's also a public bar where beers from Skye, mineral water from a spring close to Loch Ness, and a choice of whiskies are proffered. A full-cooked, homemade Scottish breakfast is included in the room rate. Loch Ness and the famed Culloden battlefield are both within 30 minutes' drive of The Old North Inn.

Positive Reviews


Very friendly and a warm welcome.

All the staff are great. Very friendly and welcoming, they go out of their way to ensure that you are completely happy.


Not ‘Bog' standard.

It used to be called The Bog Roy Inn … so you can see why they changed the name! There's very little that's inferior about this place. Breakfast is great, with an impressive choice for vegetarians. Food in the bar later, is of equally appetising quality and choice. A highlight of the catering week is the Sunday Carvery. It's well worth noting this if you're  staying Sunday night, or just passing through.


Great rooms and location.

Rooms are well decorated and welcoming. The roadside location might strike an initial note of caution re: traffic noise … but there isn't any! You aren't in the centre of a grid-locked city now!

Negative Reviews


Kitchen noise will keep you awake.

It's not the staff that's the problem, rather the ongoing noise of the refrigerator and air conditioning. Needless to say, this goes on all night! The problem doesn't apply to all rooms and it's a shame that it's there at all … because it is the only source of night time noise that is likely to bother you.


Time for some renovation and TLC.

Some areas are looking a bit dated but, worse than that is the fact that you can't fully close the bedroom window. In this neck of the woods and for many months of the year … you really need to do this!


A bleat about the en-suite.

The bathroom is very small. There's hardly anywhere to put anything at all.
