Notes:

The back of the guide book has a section of “additional advertisements” for railways and hotels in England and Wales, Ireland and Scotland. This one takes up the whole of page 12 of that supplement and is headed “Scotland”.

The advert shows an engraving (probaby on wood) of the hotel, and has the following text:

DRUMNADROCHIT HOTEL
Drumnadrochit, Glen-Urquhart.
The walks and drives about Drumnadrochit are unrivalled for beauty, variety, and extent, while in the immediate vicinity is scenery made famous by Phillips, Millais, Shirly Brooks, John Bright, and others.

Nearest route from Caledonian Canal or Inverness to the far-famed Glen Affric and Glen Cannich (fouteen miles from Temple Pier, through Glen-Urquhart).

Trout and salmon fishing on Loch Ness and Loch Meiklie free to visitors staying in the Hotel.

BOARDING BY THE WEEK.

Post and Telegraph Office one minute from Hotel.

Posting, lawn Tennis, Boating.” (p. 12)

There is also a quite from Punch Magazine:

“ “The inn (Drumnadrochit), whence these lines are dated, faces a scene which, happily, is not too often to be observed in this planet. I say happily, Sir, because we are all perfectly well aware that this world is a vale of tears in which it is our duty to mortify ourselves and make everybody else as uncomfortable as possible. If there were many places like Drumnadrochit, persons would be in fearful danger of forgetting that they ought to be miserable.”

Shirley Brooks in “Punch.”  ” (p. 12)

Although the hotel is still there today, the rooms are in a modern extension with very different architecture.
