This is a very nice B & B a few hundred yards off the main road down Loch Ness. Rooms were decent although the walls are a bit thin so you can hear your neighbours. Lovely view of garden and a stream in the back, and there are many amusing cats living on site. Breakfast was fine, room was a... More

We had a lovely stay here, Fiona and her daughter are charming hosts and it was a pleasure to meet the cats too. Hospitality, comfort and breakfast and views were all exceptional. Our only disappointment is that we only stayed for the one night as we were passing through between weddings.

This was one of my favorite places to stay on our road trip round Scotland. Fiona was an excellent host - very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was thoughtfully decorated and the breakfast was excellent. This place has a lovely garden with a stream at the back. If you like cats, you will love this place! The... More

Stayed at the Glen Rowan guest house which was a real pleasure, good pub and restaurant just down the road yet a quiet relaxing place. Also close by is the Loch Ness center and the availability of boat trips from the Drumnadrochit Hotel. And Urquart Castle is also very close by. Thank you for a lovely stay and good luck.

Fiona was very warm and welcoming---and prepares her guests an outstanding breakfast ( best haggis on our 2 week journey). Rooms are spotless and the property is in a quiet setting with a quick 10 minute walk to breweries and restaurants. We stayed only one evening, but you could easily spend another day or two in the area. When in... More

The host is perfect ,the breakfast top and the room are small but clean (we were 2 adults and one 11y old in one room) The house is kept very clean . The only drawback -and only if you are alregic against cat like myself) are the 9 cats -which were a surprise. Otherwise enjoy the garden and the hospitality

My daughter and I stayed in Drumnadrochit in August 2015. Fiona was a lovely host and we had a great time. The location was wonderful, the room was clean, and I would stay there again. The breakfast and large and very good.

We stayed at Glen Rowan for 1 night. The guest home was so cozy, quiet, and comfortable. Hostess Fiona is so kind to us. The breakfast was awesome! The information desk was helpful; we find the hiking trail and the restaurant nearby.
