We are greatly missing being able to welcome guests to Otterburn but, in accordance with the Scottish government guidelines and to play our part in keeping everyone safe, we are only able to accept essential workers for the time being (please ring us on 01967 402222 to enquire about such bookings).

However, once restrictions are officially lifted again and we are given the go ahead from government, we will happily be opening up our doors again.

Please see our COVID-19 update below.


17th May, 2020

Without doubt, our service at the point we reopen will be different in many ways but you can rest assured that our warm welcome, caring hospitality and attention to detail will be just the same as ever.

In the case of cleanliness, for which we have continuously been awarded the highest possible marks in all our guest reviews, we will be doing our utmost to ensure that any additional safety guidelines necessary in these times are closely followed.

When the time to re-open will come we cannot yet tell so, in the meantime, if you would like to make a provisional reservation we are waiving deposit payments on all bookings for August, September and October 2020. Of course, you are very welcome to book beyond these months and our availability calendar is open throughout the year to the end of September 2021.

We also offer you the right to cancel up to two weeks before arrival, which we hope is some comfort in these uncertain times. Likewise, we ourselves may have to cancel if the criteria outlined above are not met within two weeks of your arrival date or if we have to take additional precautionary measures, such as only having one room available at one time or leaving rooms unoccupied between guests for a night or more, to ensure we follow best practice.

Finally a huge thank you to all our guests who have been happy to post-pone stays that were affected by the COVID-19 situation; we’re so looking forward to seeing you in the future and welcoming new guests who will also be looking forward to exploring new places after these months of necessary but challenging isolation.

A yummy breakfast to start the day

Starting the day with a hearty breakfast is an essential part of your stay.  We offer a choice of continental, full Scottish or daily specials to tempt you with something that’s a little different such as blueberry pancakes, bursting with flavor, or smoked salmon with scrambled eggs served on bagels or crusty toast.

Breakfast is served between 8.00 and 9.00am. Earlier times can be arranged if these times do not suit; just let us know the evening before.

Walkers Packed Lunch

Packed lunches containing sandwiches, fruit, crisps, chocolate / muesli bar, fruit juice, water and homemade cake can be ordered before arrival at £7 per person.

Dining In

We offer a simple but delicious two or three-course evening meal. Please let us know in advance if you are interested.

Dining Out

Within walking distance you’ll find the Strontian Hotel and, a little further, Kilcamb Lodge which both overlook the loch.

By car, the Ariundle Centre is only a few minutes away. The Salen Hotel, Ardshealach Lodge, Loch Shiel Hotel and the Inn at Ardgour are all within half an hour’s picturesque drive.

Please advise us at time of booking if you have any special dietary requirements.
