The rooms are very spacious, clean and equipped with all the necessities. Elaine and John are marvelous hosts. So warm and welcoming it nearly feels like you're visiting family. No complaints whatsoever!

Stayed for 3 nights as part of a walking holiday to explore beautiful Scotland. The B&B is tucked away a couple of miles from Fort Augustus but easy to find if you're in a car following the directions. Elaine was a lovely host - very friendly and easy to talk to, sharing good info about the area. The superior double...

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.

We stayed at Mavisburn after our first days cycling on the great glen way. Elaine was amazing from the moment she opened the door. What a lovely person. Elaine welcomed us into her home and showed us around the lower part of the house before taking us to our room. She then told us that after we had freshened up...

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.
