Fiona made us feel so welcome, nothing was ever too much and her hospitality, support and conversations really added to our Loch Ness break. Fiona and Iona's welcoming and engagement with us, especially with my son, was simply fabulous. Thank you Fiona! Hugely recommended !

Stayed one night on the Great Glen Way. Fiona was very friendly and helpful and we had a good night's sleep and excellent breakfast. Loved the cats! A bit of a walk into Drum, recommend the Fiddlers for dinner.

A wonderful B&B house, in a very good location within walking distance of Drumnadrochit center, and a short trip by car to many places around Loch Ness. We were here first in 2007, we had a great time and excellent service from Alistair and Vanessa, so we decided to repeat. It turns out they have retired, but the house is... More

We were cycling the Great Glen Way and stayed one night at this lovely B&B in Drumnadrochit. We had an extremely comfortable room with everything we needed, an excellent full Scottish breakfast, and our hostess even made us dinner reservations at the restaurant up the road. She let us keep our bikes in the garage, and we were able to... More

Fiona was so helpful! Her house was beautiful and in a super convenient location for many island travels. We could easily get to Inverness, Loch Ness, and the isle of Skye.
