My partner and I stayed at the Pottery House on our cycle through Scotland, John couldn't have been more accommodating, allowing us to store our bikes in their garage and providing invaluable advice about the area including places to eat and to book a table at the local pub before we arrived. Our room was clean, beautifully decorated, contained everything... More

Perfect location overlooking Lochness. Beautiful room, with wonderful attention to detail. Friendly, helpful and attentive hosts. superb home cooking, cakes were delicious, breakfast was the meal of the day. This will be the B&B by which we will judge all others! Cannot recommend highly enough.

We stayed at this B&B at Loch Ness for 3 nights recently, and we had the most wonderful relaxing stay. Glen our host was simply great, nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were exceptionally comfortable and spacious. The views of both the b&b gardens and the loch was spectacular, we even spotted the pine Martin during breakfast! The... More

Lovely room, excellent breakfast - changing daily - I could not resist the porridge even though it made the second course a struggle to complete. The garden is a delight - the introductory brochure in the room describes all the aspects of what John and Glen have created and the subsequent walk around the outside of the house to see... More

I can't speak highly enough of The Pottery House. There wasn't really a lot more we could've asked for. Very well looked after by two very kind and attentive owners who clearly care about their guests. Our two night stay was a pleasure and wish we could've stayed longer. The comfy room and spacious bathroom were both spotless with all... More

I visited in August with my sister and her friend who were visiting from Australia. The B&B is very well run. The welcome is warm (welcome cupcakes in the room was a very nice touch) and the breakfast excellent. I stayed in the front double deluxe room with a view of the Loch - highly recommended. The room was spacious... More

I have to agree with all the other reviews on here. John and Glen have a lovely place and have made this place unique. There are some nice touches, such as the cakes and choosing breakfast every morning. They are quite knowledgeable with regards to the area, and can advise on things to do and places to go. Would stay... More

We were lucky enough to have a five night stay at Pottery House at the end of June. We had booked the front double deluxe room which had a wonderful view out towards Loch Ness. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The extra touches of home made cakes on arrival and fresh milk daily in the room fridge... More
