We lodged for two days. The house and the surroundings are beautiful, and comfortable. The house is surrounded by a beautiful yard which is surrounded by woods. The place is somewhat remote from Fort Augustus (10 minutes by car) which can be an added value for the people seeking a quiet place to stay.

Thank you so much for your review and I am so pleased that you found our little haven so comfortable. As you say we are a little way outside the village of Fort Augustus, but it is away from the hustle and bustle of the main area. Thank you so much and it was a pleasure to meet you both.... More

We greatly enjoyed our recent stay here. The B+B is located in a lovely quiet setting in the forest but is only about two miles from Fort Augustus, which has anything you may need such as shops, pubs, restaurants. The drive to the B+B through the forest is wonderful and the road well maintained. Our room was tastefully decorated, spotlessly... More

A warm welcome awaits you at this B&B. Lovely bedroom on the first floor. This B&B is in a forest area of Fort Augustus, maybe for some people difficult to find, but well worth the effort.

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

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!
