Myself and my husband stayed 1 night here in April. Everything about the stay was perfect from the hosts to the room and the breakfast to the very last minute booking they managed to get us at a nearby restaurant for dinner. A great B&B, we would definitely return if we found ourselves in the area again.

I was made completely at home in Mavisburn as soon as I arrived. It is superbly comfortable, with a lovely breakfast. The situation is peaceful yet within easy reach of Fort Augustus and the beautiful country around. What marks it out is the exceptional kindness of Elaine and John.
