We stayed on 21st August for a short one night stay only. Both the rooms we took were decent and stuffed with the essentials. One named Skye.. the other's name I don't remember. The tilted room-windows were neatly placed and perfect to enjoy the scenery around. In-room tea n coffee maker with many choices really helped us in that rainy...

A lovely little find this. Flying solo and felt like a home from home. A Nice and peaceful place with really nice breakfasts. The couple that run it too were super nice. The best hosts out of everywhere I've stayed - anywhere around the world. Any questions I had they answered and they were really good to provide information about...

We stayed at the top room which I believe was called skye. We had been walking on the Great glen way. It was ideal for what we wanted. Good breakfast. I would recommend this stay for those in the area or just passing through.

Just read some other reviews and can not understand what went wrong. Part of the charm of staying in a B&B is being welcomed into someone's home. Instead when we arrived there was a note telling us to call someone else. Thankfully we are English speaking otherwise this would have been very difficult. We do understand that sometimes owners might...

After arriving earlier than we had previously said, Lisa was very accommodating and getting our room sorted was no issue! Room was clean and tidy with suitable facilities and everything we needed. The food provided for breakfast was delicious and the service was very helpful. The location was quiet, however, not far from several restaurants (with a free shuttle bus...

Stayed here for a night on our Scotland road-trip. Convenient location for the Loch Ness Exhibition and Urquhart castle, plus other attractions. We stayed in the annexe, not the main house, which was very clean and well-appointed. Bed was comfortable, all the amenities were present and the breakfast was good, although my wife would have liked some fresh fruit. The...
