Phil and Claire the hosts were very welcoming and gave us some good advice with regard to local eating places. The standard of the bed and breakfast was very good and the breakfast was lovely. The bed and breakfast is on a parallel road which runs alongside the Caledonian Canal and is only a short walk to local pubs and... More

We spent a wonderful night at The Holt B & B. From the king size bed to the perfect location on the canal. Everything was great. The owners make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. It is clean quiet and extremely comfortable.

We loved The Holt and Fort Augustus last year so it was good to be heading there again knowing what to expect - a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere and a great location to unwind and watch more active people struggling with the canal locks! This year we managed to book the deluxe double - a bargain at £65 a... More

The Holt is a very comfortable place and so we are regular visitors. A fair price for good rooms on a quiet location and a good breakfast. And all that topped up bij great attention and assistance fot all needs. As fot the parking: it is not on site, but plenty of place in easy walking distance!

Thank you so much to Claire and Phil for a wonderful stay! The room was spacious and spotless, the bed very comfy and the breakfast was delicious - great fresh fruit salad and really good scrambled eggs and bacon! The conservatory with the view over the river is stunning, we hope to return!

Stopped overnight here on the Great Glen Walk with a friend. Warm welcome, great room with seating, good facilities and comfortable beds. Breakfast first class in lovely surroundings overlooking the river. No hesitation in recommending this B&B. MM

We stayed here for 1 night during a week long tour of the area. We weren't over keen on Fort Augustus, it was too busy for us. Our accomodation at the Holt was extremely comfortable and breakfast was very good, the owners Phil and Claire were nice people and gave great service. Our only complaint was the lack of parking...

Cycling the Great Glen Way from Fort William our second stop after Spean Bridge was Fort Augustus. As we were cycling alongside the Caledonian Canal it was easy to find The Holt. We received a warm and friendly welcome from Clare and Phil, and after securing our bikes in their locked garage, we were shown our bedroom. It was clean... More

I booked this B&B after seeing the reviews here on Trip Advisor. I stayed here in April with myself and my friend. The B&B was nothing short of perfect. It was extremely clean and tidy, spacious, with an amazing view from the dining room. The couple who ran it were very accommodating and pleasant. If you're staying in Fort Augustus,... More
