Deer View is located around the south east side of Loch Ness, just off the B862. The city of Inverness is around 26 miles north.
Where is the nearest airport or train/bus stations?
Inverness Airport is the nearest airport to us. It’s approximately an hours drive from Deer View. There are flights from across the UK so wherever you are based, flying is now an easy option to reach the Highlands. If you aren’t flying, the nearest train and bus stations are in Inverness City Centre.
How many guest bedrooms do you have and how many people can you accommodate?
We currently have three guest rooms at Deer View. The family room has a large double bed, single bed and double fouton (Sofa Bed). There is also a travel cot for babies/young children. Our other two rooms are a Twin room and a Double room. Ideally the maximum number of people we can accommodate is 10. (If there are more in your party we can try and accommodate you!).
What times can we check in between?
You are welcome to check in any time after 16:00. If you are going to be arriving after 22:00 we would ask that you let us know.
What time do we have to check out by?
Usually we advise guests that the checking out time is 10:00. However, should you wish to leave slightly later, please let us know.
How late can we arrive?
As with the checking in times, if you are going to be arriving late we would be grateful if you could let us know in advance.
Is there free off-road parking?
Yes, we have our own private driveway. There is enough room to park approximately 6 cars, so there is more than enough room for parking.
Are you within walking distance of a pub or are you licensed?
Yes, there is a local licensed hotel with public bar just a short walk away, which serves good food and fine ales. Unfortunately, we are not as yet licensed to sell alcohol. Please feel free to bring and consume your own though.
What time do you lock up in the evening?
If you are going to be later than 23:00 please let us know in advance, so we can be sure that the doors are unlocked and that someone is around to welcome you back.
Is there enough to do at Deer View to stay for a few days?
Most definitely! ..... and for much longer! There are easily enough activities for you to stay a week or more. Have a look at our To See, To Do and Days Out pages to get an idea of what you can do and where you can go. We also have a great collection of maps, leaflets etc for you to read.
We have to leave early for the airport or a long drive home. Can we have breakfast earlier?
Absolutely, many of our guests are people who are working in or around the local area. They often have breakfast early. We do advise that breakfast is served between 07:30 and 08:30. However, if you want to eat earlier, we can arrange this for you providing you let us know the day/night before.
Do you cater for vegetarians / vegans / special diets?
Yes – If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance, so that we can get the relevant ingredients in for you.
