It's a typical B&B with a good atmosphere inside, close to all facilities and to the center of Fort Augustus which is an interesting place to visit. The hostess was very nice and helped us with many useful information. The breakfast was very good, cooked at the moment and with many choices. Maybe the room was a bit little for... More

We stayed one night with Carol, she is so kind and generous and went out of her way to help, even doing our laundry for us. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great, one of us had the continental breakfast and the other the Scottish. Both were huge. We would definitely recommend this place.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on a driving golf/distillery holiday of Scotland/Ireland in August 2015. The host Shiela was lovely and we had a great stay. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. We would have no problems staying here again.
