“Feel right at home at this cozy B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

My husband and I loved this B&B. While researching places to stay in this town, the Woodlands wasn't our first pick but it was available and fit our budget so we booked it. We were not disappointed! I believe there are three rooms to choose from and we chose the Rum Room...which was decorated with pictures from local artists. The window overlooks the backyard and at night you can hear the river running towards Loch Ness.
Each day we were able to select what we wanted for breakfast the next day from a page of choices! The food was delightful, as was our hostess. One night my husband and I came back earlier and the evening and watched a movie from their DVD library. There is also free wifi and a wonderful binder and book of all sorts of touristy things to do in the area. We used this in determining a few of the activities we did.
We stayed for two nights, went up north, and then came back for a night before heading back to Edinburgh. If you're looking for a comfortable, enjoyable place to base out of to go to Inverness or Loch Ness, this is a fantastic place. We would stay again - and hope to one day!

We stayed here in July while walking the Great Glen Way. The house is furnished and decorated to the highest standard. We felt we could have been staying in a five-star hotel. the house is located in a quiet area but within walking distance of the village centre. We had a fabulous, well prepared breakfast to set us up for the 18-mile walk to Inverness. Yes Liz, we did manage to finish it! We have no hesitation in recommending Woodlands as a truly wonderful place to stay. We hope to come back. Thanks for everything.

Excellent B&B with very good well-cooked breaklfast and quiet location. if you have the chance and are staying for more than one night opt for the 'Skye' room which comes with its own comfortable small lounge. Minor downside - TV reception is not great in this area but you get your own DVD player in 'Skye' and also a small refrigerator.

This guest house is in a quiet suburb of Drumnadrochit but within a ten minute walk. The location was perfect and the accommodation beautifully maintained with a Scottish host which is a bit of a novelty!! Definitely recommend it

Very nice room, decorated with taste, and good, quiet, practical location. Copious Scottish breakfast with many options (I especially appreciated the fresh grapefruit and very good porridge). Cosy pubs around to have dinner at a walking distance. Close to the main road, but with footpaths, river and field nearby. Be careful not to step on the cute little frogs on the road!

Liz could not have been more welcoming and helpful! Our room was wonderful and immaculately clean and welcoming. Woodlands location is ideal for activities in or near Drumnadrochit and Loch Ness. We had a wonderful time!
