The Lovat Hotel Loch Ness

The Lovat is the only 4 star, 3 rosette hotel in Loch Ness. This award winning eco-conscious hotel is a beautiful Victorian building located in the loch-side village of Fort Augustus, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We offer excellent accommodation and unforgettable Loch Ness views.

Set in the stunning surroundings of Loch Ness we wanted to visually represent the location but more importantly the warm welcome you receive when visiting The Lovat. The client was keen to utilise large screen photography to say more than words could. Progressing the new site from the previous one required a lot of content trimming and honing the message that Caroline wanted to put out there in her digital domain. We aimed to strike a balance between giving the customer enough information while maintaining a streamlined customer journey from landing to booking. To further achieve this consistency we also worked with Navarino to make the switch to the booking engine as seamless and as intuitive as possible. Working with them to design all aspects of the interaction with the site and the consumer.

The Lovat was a complex project that required the integration of their existing booking engine into the new site, a flexible page builder system and allow their users to sign up to their newsletter. I'm very proud of the finished product as The Lovat now has a system that is flexible, tailored to their needs and allows for future expansion.
