Just spent a great New Year at this B & B. Everything we needed was provided. The hospitality and food is second to none. Fantastic breakfast - lots of choice. After a day out in this stunning area, despite the rain, we sat by the multi-fuel stove enjoying a welcome hot drink. Very cosy and comfortable. Will be back.

Sorry for the delay in my response to your review. Thank you for writing it. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The weather hasn't much improved either. A few weeks of rain. The garden is very damp, but hopefully with a few dry days we should be able to get out and prepare things for the summer. Regards Glenys...

I stayed for one night in early September, before setting off the next day to kayak the Caledonian Canal towards Inverness. I say ‘towards’ because Hurricane Katia stopped me in my tracks unfortunately, somewhere on Lock Ness, and forced me to return from Fort Augustus.
