Definitely off the beaten track, but so peaceful and beautiful. Elaine, and husband John, are lovely hosts who are so welcoming and helpful. Elaine even checked the Isle of Skye's bridge cam to see how the weather looked for our trip that day! Our room was spacious, spotless and had a lovely view of the surrounding hills. Breakfasts were delicious... More

A great touch to get a detailed email from Elaine before arrival, making sure I know how to get to the house, as it is outside the town in the forest - talking about an escape into the wild! Room was lovely and although it has been a while since I last slept in a single bed, it was a... More

To confirm what many others have said, John and Elaine are wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. They had great knowledge of the local area and were happy to advise things to do and places to go. Room had a very homely feel to it and was huge with a nice view of the garden and included a...

The location, accommodation, hosts and wildlife were all superb; it was an absolute delight to stay at the Mavisburn. As I was doing the Great Glen Walk, Elaine picked me up and dropped me off in Fort Augustus (nearest point in the route) I look forward to another visit and it may well be for a fishing trip and I...

Has to be one of the best B&B's we have stayed at yet. John & Elaine excellent hosts. Our room spotless and was the rest of the house. Very good choice of breakfasts cooked much while you wait. We would recommend Mavisburn B&B to any of our friends and family.Regards, Robin.

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.

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
