Stayed 5 nights in a cabin with our dog, loved every minute, so relaxing and quiet. Jenny was very welcoming and generous with her hospitality, she gave good advice on getting around and the local butcher who is well worth a visit. Fort Augustus is a nice busy village watching the boat up and down the locks, nice places to... More

By chance we stumbled upon this secluded bnb that also rents out cabins. We stayed in the house where Jenny (the owner) gave us a warm welcome. The surrounding land is beautiful to walk over and you can even walk back to town in 10min for a bite to eat. The house has a spacious sitting area and Jenny is... More

We booked this holiday directly with Jenny, the owner, and she recommended the Shieling Cabin. We wanted a private and semi secluded cabin in nice surroundings and nothing could have been better. When we arrived Jenny greeted us and took us to our cabin (one of three in the hotel's spacious grounds). The views from the cabin were spectacular. The... More

I 've been there two times, the first time we were just lucky and saw the sign so we got to a dark private road and we found a great looking house, it was after the sun has set and it was a little creepy just seeing a big house in the middle of nowhere (you can't see the town... More

The house is located in a fantastic location right on Loch Ness on a large farm. Plenty of animals to see including Highland Cattle, horses, birds and "Pearly" the golden Labrador. Hot breakfast cooked to order with bagpipes music playing while you wait. Now, let's talk about Jenny, the owner: We've decided to go with quirky. A lovely lady who... More

We camped at Old Pier House after seeing the sign from the water and pulling our kayak up on the beach and enquiring about camping. Jenny was so accomodating and welcoming to us and the breakfast was very tasty in the morning. The location is just fantastic and its an easy walk into town for the pubs and dinner. We... More

what an amazing place this is! We chose this place completely at random and we hit gold first time, lovely welcome from the owner and the accommodation was truly amazing. We stayed in one of the cabins in the grounds and it was a magical experience. The price was very reasonable and the breakfast perfection. I really can't praise this... More

So glad we never booked here, booked a lovely place only 1000 yards away but decided to check out The Old Pier House while in the area. Half way down the drive we were confronted by an extremely rude and unwelcoming female who as it transpires is the owner/operator. My wife and I (both in our 50's) we're treated like... More
