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

Lovely setting, friendly and welcoming hosts, clean and fabulous rooms, what more could one ask for? Breakfast was excellent and the hosts couldn't do enough in making us comfortable. Thoroughly recommended a stay here, if you are not in the area, get yourself there, it will be worth it!!

Our stay at Mavisburn was altogether too brief. We selected based on Trip Advisor reviews as a stop over point on a journey south, so we expected it to be good, but we were blown away by the experience. The hosts were brilliant - attentive, friendly, welcoming, but also discrete, all of which contributed to a very relaxing atmosphere. The... More

Touring Scotland with hubby we booked Mavisburn on reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Excellent communication on booking with very clear instructions on how to find the B&B (thank you much appreciated as would have struggled without!). The B&B is tucked away in a quiet hamlet within the forest and thus was very peaceful & dark. Elaine... More
