My third stay at Mavisburn and it never disappoints. Elaine and John are really nice hosts and run a very well appointed establishment in the midst of beautiful countryside. Breakfasts are more than ample and nothing is too much trouble. I recommend highly.

I stayed at Mavisburn B&B for one night during a work trip and it was the clear winner by far out of 3 B&B's stayed at during my trip.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this wonderful B and B for three nights checking in 8/8/14. I was so happy with the location as it was a short drive away from the village in a quite area.

We would highly recommend Mavisburn to anyone who is looking to stay near Fort Augustus. It is in a great location out of the village, so very quiet but not too far to get back to one of the many restaurants, pubs etc in Fort Augustus. On booking we were given very precise instructions by Elaine on how to find... More

This was our first night in Scotland in early May and we had such a wonderful sleep after a tiresome journey. The hosts, John & Elaine, made us feel welcome and warm on a rainy day.

We spent one night here, arriving tired after a long drive up from England. The welcome was warm, the room very comfortable and had an excellent breakfast next morning.

We stayed (unfortunately) only for one night but loved it. This B&B is located very quiet just a couple of minutes outside of Fort Augustus and simply beautiful. The house itself is clean and wonderfully decorated, the hosts are very friendly and the breakfast just right. Sitting in the breakfast/living room you have a nice view on a beautyfully arranged...
