Unplanned adventure, took a turn down the path and truly amazed at the end of it (we only went down as we thought we could buy tea and sit looking over the loch) A very warm welcome from Jenny. Decided we would stay the night. Very comfortable accomodation with undoubtedly the best view of the Loch. Jenny explained the no... More

I was solo hiking the Great Glen Way - this was one of my favorite B&Bs, and I feel so enriched to have spent a little time with Jenny MacKenzie. The room was comfortable but not fussy, but I was much taken with the location on the peninsula jutting into the loch, and the menagerie of Highland cattle and ponies... More

Ginny MacKenzie opens up her home to you right on the Loch Ness. Private but easy walk to Fort Augustus makes it a perfect place to see the whole area. Ginny has canoes you can use, horses you can pet and feed and even Highland Cattle you can pet and get close to for those special photos. What wonderful place... More

We booked the family room for 4 adults, 2 kids and 1 toddler. Very clean and comfortable. Fantastic views, and great service. It comes with a small kitchen. Can park 2 cars right outside our room. Highly recommended!

A group of ten of us kayaking the Great Glen, a week ago, phoned ahead and got accommodation for a night right on the shore of Loch Ness. A fantastic welcome, very comfortable accommodation and at a good price. We were even transported to a local pub in the evening. A great place to stay, marvellous views and a great... More

We actually stayed at one of the cabins next to the bed and breakfast. We loved the location - beautiful to wake up to Loch Ness every morning. The cabin was a little rustic but it was exactly what we were expecting so we didn't have any surprises. The location was fabulous. We walked into the town of Fort Augustus... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in August this year. We were made to feel very welcome by Jenny who owns the place. It's beautifully located right on Loch Ness and only a 10 minute walk into the main part of Fort Augustus for the pubs and shops. Good price. Lovely stay. Will hopefully visit again one... More

We were sat eating our breakfast and could hear alot of cursing coming from a back kitchen area. Then Jenny the host was... More

My daughter (25) and I (62) were on a week-long cycling holiday along the Great Glen. We stayed at Old Pier House on 28August 2014. Total price was £75. The landlady is Jenny, and she is a character. We had a wonderful, relaxing time chatting to her about this and that. The location of Old Pier House cannot be beaten... More

The B&B is very nicely located close to loch ness, in fact you can practice any water sports from there. Jenny (the host) was very kind while accomodating us. Very complete breakfast. If i had say any regular comment i´d have to say the house is pretty old, however the beds are new and confortable.
