I stayed with friends (they booked it) and although the stay was ok, we never relaxed as Jenny was sometimes nice but mostly off hand and rude we were lectured continually on a number of things before we even got to our room…..no chewing gum, no feeding the dogs, no smoking etc etc she went on and on. None of us had gum or cigarettes at any point during our stay!!
Breakfast was very sparse, the cooked breakfast was served on a side plate and Jenny was watching your every move, no plates on top of other plates and one slice of bread at a time in the toaster! I still laugh when I think of the half slice of haggis on the tiny plates!!
Such a shame as a lovely location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Old Pier House, a Highland farmhouse on the shores of Loch Ness, near the pretty village of Fort Augustus. We offer bed and breakfast in the main house open from April to October and self-catering facilities in our Loch Ness Log Cabins which are open all year round. This is a very private location on a peninsula in Loch Ness with stunning loch and mountain views yet only a ten minute walk or a two minute drive from the centre of the village. Located in the heart of the Highlands we are ideally situated as a central base for your Scottish touring holiday. We welcome walkers, cyclists, canoeists, horses and camping groups. There is plenty of parking and storage space. The 125 year old house with magnificent views has been extended to provide comfortable en-suite ground floor bedrooms, sitting rooms with log fires and a large bright breakfast room with superb views. Originally the Old Pier House was the end of the line for the West Highland Railway where big paddle steamers carried timber, cattle and people up the loch to Inverness. The old pier still remains and provides wonderful photo opportunities, a great picnic location and moorings for small boats. We have friendly Highland cattle and ponies that graze naturally on the heather hills, fields and surrounding woodlands. We speak fluent Gaelic, French, German, Italian and Spanish. ... more less
