Situated in the picturesque fishing village of Avoch, the Station Hotel is centrally located in the heart of the beautiful Black Isle,and is only 15 minutes from Inverness by car.

The hotel is ran by Richard and Lorraine Comfort, who bought the hotel in March 2011. After a lot of labour and love, the hotel offers 8 modern guest rooms, spacious dining rooms, and a refurbished public bar. Facilities available on site include free wi-fi, a pool table in the public bar, juke box, a large flowering beer garden and a private function room.

As well as running the hotel, Richard is also the Head Chef in the hotel kitchen where he rustles up glorious mouth watering dishes using the finest of local ingredients. He grew up within the catering industry as both his parents were chefs and he himself has worked in some prestigeous hotel kitchens, including the famous Skibo Castle in Sutherland.

You won't go hungry here at the Station - just ask the locals about the Station's infamous Zinger Burger!

As Avoch is on one of the main touist routes within the Highlands, there are plenty of activities near by to see and do.
