“Lovely, comfortable, and very welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

Drumbuie Farm is a very comfortable B&B and Caroline is a warm and friendly hostess who really cared about our holiday. She cooks up a lavish hot breakfast each morning and saw to our every need. The calves were an endless source of amusement, the views from the farmhouse are stunning, and the location makes a perfect starting point for many places of interest in the Highlands. It's truly a marvelous place to stay and we hope to return next year!

A very good and quiet place to stay in very pleasant country surroundings with a good view over Urquhart Bay. Caroline and Ian looked after us extremly well. We would have no hesitations to stay there again.

This is a dynamite B&B. The views over the glen and loch are amazing. The hostess is very helpful and considerate - booking us dinner reservations and driving us to town when necessary. It is convenient to walk the Great Glen Way or just down to the village of Drumnadrochit where you can tour the Loch Ness centers and decide for yourself if Nessie is real or just a myth.

This was undoubtedly one of the cleanest B&Bs that I've stayed in after over 3 weeks in the UK. I could even see where furniture was moved to vacuum under. And even the vents in the bathroom were clean. No dust bunnies here! But highland and other cows aplenty as well as sheep.

Breakfast was great. My husband and son really appreciated the Scottish pancakes. I loved the nice strong filter coffee.The rooms were comfortable and well stocked with towels and tea items. Our end room had corner windows and the breeze was wonderful.

Only caveats are - 1) not a great toilet. Flushing was a hit or miss and usually a miss. Just didn't seem to work well. 2) bed could be slightly better, but it wasn't bad. 3) Television reception was very very fuzzy. Okay so you shouldn't be here to watch tv anyway, right?

We stayed in 2 rooms which were both very roomy and clean. The views from the breakfast room couldn't be beaten. Loch Ness could be seen as well as the farm's Highland cattle.

Caroline served us beautiful breakfasts and gave us very good advice about what to see and do.

We were a 5 minute drive from Drumnadrochit and had a very restful stay. It was a lovely way to enjoy Loch Ness.

We stayed at Drumbie Farm for 2 nights, Caroline excellent host. Lovely views of Loch Ness while eating our breakfast.
Highland cows and Taggart being the stay of the show, after the 2 new arrivals of calves during our stay.
Rooms were very clean, we stayed in a four poster bed, the next room were quite noisy and rude but no fault of Caroline's and she did apologies on their behalf. Breakfast was excellent, with a great choice.
We had a good hearty meal at the Loch Ness Bistro, excellent value for money and very tasty, they will provide a taxi service from the b&b but it is only 10 minute walk, but this was an excellent meal and would recommend this restaurant.
I would recommend this b&b

Had a great time at Lochness and Drumbuie Farm was the perfect B & B to stay, we had problems arriving the first night because of ash cloud and flights so was only able to enjoy 1 night but it was very comfortable, clean, good location and Carolyn was great host and cooked breakfast to perfection - thank you.

Brilliant location, overlooking Loch Ness, and only 10 minutes stroll to the village centre. Lovely rooms, friendly owners. Highly recommended.
