Gents toilet urinals

Gents toilet makeover

The gents bar toilets have had a revamp! We worked with local craftsman Michael on a makeover. In line with our green credentials, we always try to re-use or recycle waste. We inherited some old beer kegs when we took on the hotel back in 2018 and decided to put them to good use as urinals and a sink. Michael used a traditional burnt wood technique to create a new cubicle and urinal unit and sink stand. A new tiled floor was installed and Bella used some of her quirky styling to accessorise with the Broons and Oor Wullie and we are absolutely delighted with the result. We think that we’ve got the best loos in South Loch Ness. What do you think?

Walking/Hiking

Based on the South Loch Ness Trail, Whitebridge Hotel has a wide range of walks directly from the hotel.  Whether you prefer a signposted route, forest trails or hill-hiking.  We have taken advantage of the lockdown periods and enjoyed exploring all of the local walks.  During much of this time, the ground was covered in ice and snow transforming our surroundings into a Winter Wonderland!

Wildlife Spotting

One of the best parts of visiting South Loch Ness is the wildlife spotting.  Admire the stags at dusk as they come down to the roadside, spot the red squirrels on the squirrel trail, the pheasants and partridges when out walking on the local estates, hares, rabbits, stoats, eagles, red kites.....the list goes on.

Day trips

We are ideally placed for day trips heading either East or West! Head East and visit some lovely beaches on the east coast including Rosemarkie, Dornoch and Nairn.  Head West and visit the Isle of Skye, Applecross and Lochcarron.  Wherever you are heading remember to ask about our packed lunches and picnics.
