Excellent hostess and beautiful B&B right along Loch Ness. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Jenny is one of the most interesting woman I ever met. Up close and personal with Highland Cows, Horses and Pearl (her dog). Rooms were clean and showers worked well. Warm wood fire and conversation makes for an interesting evening. Loved this place!

We are still so impressed by our visit to the Old Pier House run by Jenny speaking 6 languagrs, the most remarkable woman we ever met. Just by chance we found this secret. We stayed at the main house, room no.1, with direct view to the Loch. The room was not big and simply, but practically furnished. Here are the... More

Jenny McKenzie is an inspiration as a person and tireless hostess. Her B&B is right on Loch Ness and a 5 minute walk to town. The rooms are small but look out over the water. The breakfasts are full and fresh. Eggs made to order. We planned to stay one night but had to tear ourselves away after three. Jenny... More

What a beautiful place to stay - right on the banks of Loch Ness. Jenny is a wonderful hostess - couldn't do enough for us. Gave us tips on where to eat in Fort Augustus. Accommodation was wonderful - hot drinks whenever you want them. Jenny lit the fire in the evening - such a cosy room to relax in.... More

Our visit was pretty much the same as a lot of people's experience... Below standard When we arrived at our cabin, it was clearly not cleaned between guests, the dust was thick on all surfaces and dirt all under wicker furniture (gross) If that wasn't bad enough the bathroom had dirt everywhere on any visible surface, shower curtain covered in...

The property is so beautiful that I don't have words to describe, it is situated right at Loch Ness with silence being the only noise around. We stayed at a chalet sufficient for two, it was amazing and the breakfast was very good. The property is in some acres and staying there is an experience by itself with green all... More

After being in several B&B's in Scotland, this one seemed a bit basic for the price we paid. There are strange rules such as not being able to eat chewing gum (???). And we had the feeling of being treated as children by a grumpy teacher. The location is great. Breakfast was a bit below average.

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
