At the same time as the Hotel was built the Royal Highland Yacht Club was established and the Hotel continues to be the base for this regatta. During the 60's the building was renamed as The Caledonian Hotel and at this time was one of the first Hotels in the Highlands to boast "a motorized lift and central heating".
