How to get here?

An Talla is situated 4 miles out of Inverness down the A82. You can access us via car, we have a large car park that is free to park. You can also enjoy a leisurely stroll down the Caledonian Canal and walk down to us, or if you prefer to cycle we have bike racks available.

I have a dietary requirement – can you cater?

Our food is made fresh to order so we can cater to the majority of dietary requirements. Our menu is available to view, however, if you would rather call ahead to make sure, you can reach us at 01463 233999 or email

Are you dog-friendly?

We are! There is no limit to the number of dogs that can join us in our courtyard, and our team is happy to get your dog some water if needed. We do allow well-behaved dogs inside the restaurant, however, this is limited to a maximum of 5.

We also ask that if your dogs have been for a swim, they don’t come in! The canal is tempting for dogs, so should they go for a swim prior, you make use of our courtyard & stretch tent facilities.

Location & Directions


We’re located just 4 miles from Inverness.  You can reach us by car, we have plenty of free parking available.

Fancy a stroll? We’re approximately 3 miles walk along the scenic canal front.
