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. At night I could hear owls hooting and cows mowing, this might not sound nice to everyone but for me it was... More

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. Since we are vegetarians, our breakfast choices have been limited, but John and Elaine catered to our special needs and made a wonderful breakfast... More

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. Our hosts were very friendly and suggested a few places to visit en-route to Skye. We can recommend this as a base to visit this area or, as we did, a... More

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...

We only stayed there one night as a stopover on our way to Skye. The best thing I can say is I wish we could have stopped for longer. Lovely setting in the middle of a forest clearing; very quiet and peaceful; and very dark at night - no street lights! We were made to feel very welcome when we... More

Our stay at Mavisburn was altogether too brief.
