We stayed at Tigh Na Mairi B&B for 2 nights in August 2013. The room was tidy and well maintained and the bathrooms were clean. A highlight was the tub was placed under the sliding glass window and was great to relax looking at the starry sky. The owner Julie was nice and the breakfast was good. We climbed Ben... More

This B&B is right on the Great Glen Way and on the Caledonian Canal towpath, right at the top of the Fort Augustus locks. The views from every point of the house is spectacular and whiling the time away watching the canal traffic is fascinating. The B&B is very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent.

The rooms are modern and... More

Thank you Julie and Clive for a very warm welcome and sharing your knowledge of the district, it helped us appreciate the spectacular area. Comfortable beds were wonderful after busy days, lovely hot shower. The view from our room at night overlooking the canal was magic with the lights sparkling on the water. Breakfast was just how we like it,... More

The children really appriciated their first british breakfast with eggs sausages, baked beans.... The bathrooms were spotless and the family room facing our double bed room was very convenient as we have three... More

Real shame the property has a musty smell, which gets you if you waken up through the night. Julie is a very warm person who looked after us well during our stay. Still some decorative work to finish off which will further enhance the feel.
