I couldn't have asked for anything more
‘I couldn't have asked for anything more, The Loch Ness Country House Hotel was everything I had hoped for. All the staff were brilliant and when it came to our big day I couldn’t have faulted the service. The food was exquisite and the staff were always on hand when required. I would highly recommend this venue for future brides. From the cute cottages to the hotel itself it provided a perfect setting for our November wedding’

The most special day ❤️
We got married at Loch Ness Country House Hotel on Thursday 18th October 2018! We picked the most beautiful venue set in the most ideal place, not too close to the city centre but not too far for guests to travel. We always knew we wanted to marry there as I previously worked there in my late teens as a waitress. I couldn't recommend Lianne enough, from start to finish she made everything perfect & I put my trust in her on the day that all my wishes would be met and they were. Lianne & the staff made our day so special and it ran so smoothly from start to finish. I would do it all over again if I could. We have already booked to comeback back for our first anniversary!

A dream come true .....
Beattie - Hay Wedding 8th September 2018 If you have chosen Loch Ness for your Wedding then you are on the home run of having a brilliant wedding. Steve and I were blown away. It couldn’t have been better. Lianne the event planner at Loch Ness Country House Hotel is simply the best at what she does. A true professional, Lianne knows her stuff. We chose Loch Ness because when we visited other hotels looking for a venue Lianne stood out from the rest. Lianne from the moment we booked our wedding went out of her way at every given opportunity. Lianne is undeniably talented at her job, nothing is ever a problem for her demanding customers like Steve and I. Full of ideas and suggestions it almost felt as we had nothing to do throughout the process. Our wedding day was perfect. Everything ran to plan because of the Loch Ness team. A special mention to Chris who also went above and beyond and the team on the day were attentive, caring and on the ball. Our day was made easy because they simply understood what we wanted. They listened to us from the word go and because of their experience added value at every opportunity. The food was outstanding. The chef deserves his 2 Rosettes. The presentation was amazing. Lianne is a lovely girl who is in the right job. But more than that she cares about her clients and that’s evident in everything that she does. This was proven when Lianne walked our dog down the aisle to ensure he got to us safely. The team at Loch Ness have it all covered. We didn’t worry about a thing. From this journey we have learnt a few things - we will be singing the praises of Loch Ness whenever and wherever we can and that we have now great friends with Lianne and her team at the Loch Ness Country House Hotel.

Couldn’t have asked for more
From start to finish our wedding planning and Day was just perfect. Lianne made sure our day ran so smoothly and she was just wonderful to work with. The venue and staff exceeded our expectations and made our day truly memorable. Our wedding meal was outstanding considering the number of meals needed. So many of our guests commented on how delicious it was. Adding on our hog roast at the end of the night was great for refuelling after dancing. I couldn’t recommended LNCHH enough and just wish we could do it all again!
Tie the Knot

We’d only decided to get married 12 weeks before!
For Black Isle bride Lysanne, it had to be the Loch Ness Country House Hotel for her rip-roaring, Highland big day. Not ones to follow the norm, she and groom Craig were determined to stay true to themselves, and found kindred spirits in the venue’s co-ordinator Lianne Power and head chef Adam Dwyer. “We’d only decided to get married 12 weeks before!” laughs Lysanne. “I don’t think we could – or would – have done this with any other venue we visited. It was Lianne’s enthusiasm and Adam’s positivity that had us utterly convinced that this was the place we should tie the knot.” Lianne quickly became a fairy godmother to the couple. “From the minute we started planning our special day, she was really there for us,” says the bride. “Craig and I were working full time throughout, and deeply appreciated that she answered all our questions immediately, keeping us on the right track and reminding us exactly what we had to do at each stage. Nothing was too much trouble for her.” As Lysanne and Craig began to piece together their day with Lianne, their priorities became clearer. “We wanted a wedding that was about us and our friends and family, a day for the people we love to come together and catch up,” explains the bride. Their early January date meant it would feel festive: “Visually, it needed to be seasonal, but we didn’t want it to scream Christmas. We chose a simple palette of white, black and silver to allow the flowers (by CP Flower Design) to be the punchy jolt of colour. Luckily, Loch Ness Country House Hotel is so versatile, it was easy to put our stamp on the function suite.” Important as the theme was to Lysanne and Craig, the food was the heart and soul of their day. When the couple told the kitchen about their unusual concept (and mentioned guests with allergies), chef Adam was not only unfazed but fired up. “The venue was wonderfully accommodating when it came to discussing the dishes and drinks,” says Lysanne. “As we got married just after the excesses of Hogmanay, I was keen to avoid a traditional four-course meal, and suggested we try street food instead, which we’re both passionate about. Although we had dietary requirements to consider, it didn’t limit our choices in any way – Adam was totally on board and delivered a superb Spanish- influenced buffet, which the guests thoroughly enjoyed.” If you’re hungry, don’t read any further: the spread sounds mouth-watering. “We had a help-yourself policy,” Lysanne remembers. “On the tables, we had a selection of breads and oils and vinegars for dipping (the olive loaf was a big hit) and mains included scallop-and-chorizo skewers, paella, prawn pinchos, steak salad, whole dressed salmon and crispy calamari with aioli.” And as if that wasn’t enough, you would probably have wanted to leave room for dessert:. “The hotel is famed for its incredible high tea, so for pudding we had stands laden with mini cakes and pastries, which everyone could get stuck into.” Stomachs filled, the 88 guests soon found out that the accommodation was also second to none. “The team made our budget work hard and tailored everything to what we wanted to spend, which was impressive given we didn’t opt for the set menu and were able to hire the venue exclusively, meaning it was only our guests staying at the hotel,” explains Lysanne. “My bridesmaids and I spent the night before in one of the cottages in the grounds, while my parents slept in the house. It was so relaxing and made the next morning less stressful. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated.” Despite the substantial grounds, delicious dinner and sumptuous spaces, it was the staff that have left the most lasting impression on Lysanne and Craig and made their celebration what it was. “I would encourage anyone to consider the venue for their wedding,” says the bride. “Lianne is exceptional and there is nothing she couldn’t make happen. She really helped us create our fairytale.”
