We stayed three nights at this cozy B&B. We had a car which made it easier both to get there and to get to Fort Augustus. Elaine was very welcoming and gave us lots of great tips about what to see and where to eat, and both she and husband John were very helpful throughout. Breakfast was very good, and... More

Well maintained, nice rooms. The hosts are lovely, very kind and helpful. We had cycled there and they stored our bikes away for the night and gave us a lift to and from Fort Augustus (2 miles away) for dinner. I was so relieved by this kind offer - I really didn't want to get back on the bike again... More

Hello to you both! Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and the lift to and from the village. It is something we offer our walkers and cyclists as we are aware it is a little way outside the village centre. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.

A little off the beaten track Mavisburn is a beautiful house and has to be one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. John and Elaine were very welcoming and offered tea/coffee on our arrival.

Very comfortable accommodation in the superior room followed by a delicious breakfast. The surroundings are picturesque and peaceful. Elaine and John gave very helpful information about the best way to travel around Loch Ness, visiting Foyers Falls and Dores. Thank you for that it was an amazing route!

We have just returned from a two-night stay at Mavisburn, and couldn’t recommend it enough! The house itself is in a beautiful forest, set a little way out of Fort Augustus (maybe a 5-10 minute drive through the woods), and it’s very peaceful and quiet. We stayed in the superior double room, and it was great. Large and simply furnished... More

A great B&B, 2 miles from the city centre of Fort Augustus. The surroundings are really peaceful and the hosts are wonderful. They give plenty of tips for your visits and are always ready to help. The breakfast was great, more than enough choice and really tasty.
