What can I say this place was absolutely amazing I travelled by car from my partners in Liverpool the views were absolutely amazing and breathe taking. Was an interesting route from the town to the b & b dark and felt like it was in the middle of nowhere as it was dark when we arrived. We were warmly greeted... More

Elaine and John really make this B&B - they are warm and affable hosts. Mavisburn is five minutes drive from Fort Augustus in an attractive, quiet and peaceful location. Our room was large and comfortable and we enjoyed a good night's sleep. Our full Scottish breakfast was substantial and set us up well for a day on the road. Elaine... More

Elaine and John were such wonderful hosts even when I took the wrong road and ended up in Fort William instead of Fort Augustus! They guided me onto the right road and waited up for me to arrive even though it was very late. The room I stayed in was perfect! Clean and fresh and welcoming. The bathroom was across... More

A great B&B, 2 miles from the city centre of Fort Augustus. The surroundings are really peaceful and the hosts are wonderful. They give plenty of tips for your visits and are always ready to help. The breakfast was great, more than enough choice and really tasty.

The B and B is a little way out of Fort Augustus but is in a lovely, peaceful setting. The breakfast is good and the owners are very helpful when it comes to places to go/eat/routes. We would certainly recommend it.

We just came off a 4-night stay at Mavisburn. The hosts, John & Elaine, were the best. They helped us plan each day in the Scottish Highlands, even sometimes recommending the right cafe to stop at to & from a destination. (Your guidebook doesn't hold a candle to them!) The breakfast was more than adequate, tasty, and of high quality:... More

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.
