Lovely clean and friendly bed and breakfast. Fiona the new owner proved to be an excellent host and could not have been more welcoming. Her standards with regard to quality and presentation of her food were excellent. The location is very convenient with just a short walk into the main town. Would definitely recommend this place to stay if you... More

Morganagael, Owner at Glen Rowan Guest House, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind words. It's always daunting taking over a well respected business, especially as a "newbie", and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. It was lovely to meet you and Graham and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip in Scotland (especially the Superbikes). Hopefully you'll be able to come back up again sometime. More

I spent one night in this sweet B&B with my family. AS we were 5, we had two nicely decorated rooms. Nothing was missing. It was perfect. Needless to say that the owners were really kind and helpful. We enjoyed the nicely cooked breakfast. The "waiter", Alistair, was really funny and nicely dressed.... It was an awesome guest house, with... More

Our family of 2 adults 3 children (aged 10, 9 and 7) stayed 2 nights in Alistair and Vanessa's guest house. Booking over the phone, we were advised that the twin room has a trundle bed for under 16s but it would make the room small. Happy with this, we booked rooms 1 and 2, which were opposite each other... More

A friend of mine had chosen Glen Rowan as the ideal location for her one-week yoga course, run by the very kind hosts Vanessa and Alistair and offering a nice garden next to a brook, facing meadows and woods. Unfortunately, the Scottish summer weather did not suit these plans but our hosts did everything to make it possible for us... More

We found the Glen Rowan guest house to be very clean and the traditional Scottish breakfast was delicious. There is great place for dinner at the Loch Ness Inn, which is an easy walk from the B & B. Our host, Alistair, was exceptional. He took the time to talk about our travel plans, and preferences and gave us some... More

My husband and I especially enjoyed staying here because Alistair and Vanessa were so kind and engaging. There were two other couples staying there while we were and we had a number of interesting conversations over breakfast. Very clean and nice location near a wonderful restaurant, the Loch. Ness Inn. We highly recommend a stay.

A tour through the UK, brought my wife and me to the B & B from Vanessa and Alistair. From the first moment we felt like we’ve met friends. With enthusiasm we exchanged information and talked about our hobby to ride a motorbike. The rich and delicious breakfast was served in Scottish style in a kilt, at the comfortable dining... More

Had a delightful say here in 2013, me and my sister were graciously accomodated by the hostess who proceeded to tell us all we needed to know in order to make dining plans. Breakfast was great, and Alistair provided a genuine highlands experience with the kilt and bagpiping. Can't say much for value as the stay was included with another... More

From the moment we arrived at the Glen Rowan we were made to feel very welcome. The room was very clean with attention to every detail and Vanessa serves up a lovely varied breakfast menu, with homemade jam, plus you can order a packed lunch if needed for a little extra. We've never laughed so much as Alistar has a... More

The owners were very friendly and helpful. Great sense of humour made our stay great. Excellent breakfast. Lovely touch was the owner in his kilt each morning-special. The location is an easy walk to the town. Highly recommend this b&b.
